Grayshott Folk Club Welcomes Back: The Ocelots
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
The Ocelots first played for us in August 2022 and made such an impact on us, we had to have them back as soon as we could.
These guys are going places.
The Ocelots are 24 year-old twins Brandon and Ashley Watson. Born and raised in Ireland, they currently live in Leipzig, Germany. They have crafted their song writing and musical experience together to produce a forceful blend of rich, sibling harmonies and bare, raw acoustic Folk.
Their music perfectly embodies the breezy effortlessness of early Bob Dylan and their harmonies bring to mind Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers.
They've had over 1.6 Million listens on Spotify.
The word is starting to get out and in May 2022, they were invited to perform (virtually), at the Folk International Alliance showcase event in Kansas City, USA. Since then, they've played for us at Grayshott Folk Club and all over Europe. They've been warmly embraced in Ireland too and are starting to appear at prestigious festivals all over the place.
This won't be the last time you hear about The Ocelots...
Their star is in the ascendant, for sure.
The Ocelots' live set combines all that is great about Folk music, so come and be charmed by this charismatic duo.

The Ocelots is a project created by twins Ashley & Brandon Watson. Originally based in Wexford, Ireland, they now reside in Leipzig, Germany. The Ocelots were formerly a school band, playing blues standards and alternative rock during lunchtime. In this space, Brandon & Ashley started writing their own music, pursuing the direction of Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel's folk sensibilities. They finished school and backpacked around Europe, playing shows and street-performing wherever they could.
