24 June: Hatful of Rain: Appalachian-influenced folk/roots quartet

Tickets £12 on the door or £12 + £1.20 booking fee if booked online

Hatful of Rain are an Appalachian-influenced British folk/roots quartet based in East Sussex, playing original material with a strong traditional feel.

Comprising Chloe Overton (lead vocals, guitar & mandolin), Phil Jones (upright bass, clawhammer banjo, vocals), Fred Gregory (mandolin, guitar, vocals) and James Shenton (fiddle) they combine Bluegrass, Americana and ‘old time’ elements, comprising both traditional and original material.

With the addition of Davies and Shenton the ‘Chloe Overton Project’ has gathered pace. These two fine musicians have added a rich instrumental dimension to the music – Fred’s guitar and mandolin have long been admired since his time with ‘Porchlight Smoker’ while James has an impeccable pedigree, both as a violinist with the Balanescu Quartet and a sometime member of The Crawfish Scrapers string band.

“Taking part in a singaround isn’t at all like an open mike session or performing on stage. There won’t be a microphone.

“We welcome musical contributions from everyone, young or old – and we will be encouraging everyone to join in with the choruses.”

Non-performers are welcome to come and there is no need to pre-book.
