Grayshott Folk Club presents:
Hatful Of Rain
Saturday 19th October 2019 @ 7:30pm
Hatful of Rain are a trio, based in East Sussex, who have been playing together since 2010. Their music is a blend of British Folk & Americana styles, centred around songs with timeless themes of love and loss, domestic hardships, migration, identity, celebration & grief.
The beautiful melodies they play can sometimes be accompanied by some hard-hitting lyrics.
Check out "Scarlet Ribbon" here:
HOR have released 3 albums and 1 EP to date and have toured widely in the UK on the folk circuit; rooms above pubs, folk clubs, village halls, festivals, house concerts and theatres. Originally a four piece, 2019 brings a period of change - following the retirement of fiddle player James Shenton.
Concentrating on arrangements and nuances of their song writing, the new format has been met with warm response.
Hatful of Rain are:
Chloe Overton – vocals, guitar, banjo, mandolin and harmonica.
Phil Jones, double bass, vocals, guitar, banjo
Fred Gregory, guitar, vocals and mandolin.
"So very hard to resist" Wychwood Folk Club.
"Wonderful group of musicians, easy to work with" Ropetackle Arts Centre, Shoreham On Sea
"Great to work with and a great live act" Ken Brown, Square Roots Promotions.
