The distinctive sound that makes Keston Cobblers’ Club so unique comes from a desire to create contemporary, catchy music fused with the wholesome grittiness of traditional folk. With a festival count growing by the minute and support from BBC 6 Music's Tom Robinson, Folk Radio UK, John Kennedy XFM, Bob’s Folk Show and praise from a multitude of online reviews, Bromley's Keston Cobblers' Club released their new single ‘Beam’ on May 13th.
Keston Cobblers’ Club formed in 2009 with sibling duo Matthew and Julia Lowe joining old Keston School friends Tom and Daniel to write and play music together. Over the years the band has shuffled around its members, climaxing with a Cobblers’ 60 piece fan orchestra recorded live last year.
After the release of their debut single ‘You-go’ (featured on the album), which gained national radio play and critical acclaim for its unique video, the band went on to release a five track limited edition physical EP ‘Welcome to the Club’ which sold out in under five months. They followed this release with a string of UK gigs including the main support for folk heavyweights Seth Lakeman, Liz Green and Finbar Furey during their sell out tours, and went on to play numerous UK festivals including Bestival, Wilderness, Cambridge Folk Festival, Larmer Tree and Wychwood.
This summer the band are confirmed to be playing Barn On The Farm, Field View Festival, Glastonbury, Greenbelt Festival, Greenman, Larmer Tree, LeeFest, The london Folk Festival, Secret Garden Party, Sydenham Arts Festival and Wilderness.
