Based on folklore but filled to the brim with a modern kick, Keston Cobblers’ Club’s music is catchy, contemporary pop folk.
Siblings Matthew and Julia have gathered with school friends Tom, Harry and Bethan to revive the legacy of the old struggling Cobbler of Keston and his foot-stamping, shoe-scuffing music club. With beautiful harmonies, an oom-pah tuba line and a mish-mash of other instruments, the Cobblers give you music to tap along to!
Their debut album ‘One, For Words’ was released in August 2013 to critical acclaim and won widespread praise from BBC Radio 2 & 6 Music’s Bob Harris, Steve Lamacq and Simon Mayo amongst many other online blogs. Having recorded sessions for Burberry Acoustic, BBC Introducing and Daytrotter along with festival appearances at Bestival, Cambridge Folk and Wilderness amongst others, Keston Cobblers Club are ‘a band set for huge things’ (the 405 Single Of The Week).
“where did this band come from?? One of the best new discoveries I made” - Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio 2 / 6Music
“Keston Cobblers’ Club - what a fantastic discovery” - Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
