The Coal Porters
The Coal Porters were formed a decade ago in Los Angeles by ex Long Ryder Sid Griffin. The band has enjoyed indie chart success in the UK and Europe and toured frequently, including the US. Their albums ‘Land of Hope and Crosby’, ‘Los London` and ‘The Gram Parsons Tribute Concert` received rave reviews across the UK and USA. With Griffin on mandolin, Neil Robert Herd on flatpickin’ guitar plus banjo, double bass and fiddle the new album ‘Durango’ is The Coal Porters fourth and best “altbluegrass” album, earning 4 star reviews from Mojo, Uncut, Q and The Daily Mail. “Swell picking, sweet vocals, strong tunes... a bucketful of tradition.” Time Out “A fine set of rousing bluegrass...always a joy to see and hear.” Americana UK
