This coming August bank holiday weekend Elstead will welcome the arrival of Swamp Train, all the way from Switzerland.
Formed back in 2010 Swamp Train are a full-on cigar box guitar blues band. They've had some personnel changes since formation but they are now a four piece consisting of Big Blowin’ Blaze on vocals, cigar box guitar and harmonica, Alain Pache aka Cut Finger on lead cigar box guitars and backing vocals, Andy Duggan aka Jus’Skin on cigar box bass and background growling and now Rattlebrained on washboard, percussion, bones and backing vocals. They're all set to lift the roof from the Elstead pavilion at this weekend's second Barrelhouse Beer and CBG festival.
And here's a little taster to whet your appetite (see you in Elstead):
