"Super, pacy and energetic!" Blues Matters
"Be sure not to miss them!" Spencer Davis
The Rumblestrutters bring you vintage blues and jazz of the Prohibition era. The Swansea-based acoustic threepiece vividly evoke the music of the 1920s and ‘30s, and have a reputation as one of the UK's premier roots bands, with highlights including stellar performances at Birmingham International Jazz Festival and Gloucester Blues Festival.Started when Jon Toft (vocals, mandolin, banjo) found an old ink jug at the back of a cupboard, the band features the masterful guitar-playing and voice of Jonathan Nicholas, and Liam Ward on vocals, harmonica, jug and washboard.
Luscious harmonies and virtuosity combine in songs of bootleg liquor and bacchanalia, tapped from a rich musical source. The Rumblestrutters are the authentic sound of the Prohibition era!
