East Lonesome Drifters are a five-piece outfit that pay homage to traditional honky-tonk, Bakersfield sound, western swing and country.
Hailing from Pittsburgh USA, singer Crispy Cowboy gives authentic voice to the stories behind the songs - classics from the likes of Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Bob Wills, Gram Parsons, Buck Owens, Bob Dylan, Steve Earleand many others.
With three part harmonies, acoustic guitar, pedal / lap steel, Telecaster, bass and washboard percussion (with the occasional dobro, piano and harmonica thrown in), it has been said that East Lonesome Drifters lay claim to being the most authentic honky tonk barroom band in the UK.
Check out their latest EP ‘A Satisfied Mind’ here, if you'd like to get a feel for what to expect.
We look forward to welcoming East Lonesome Drifters back at the Heathcote and Star!
