Rumblestrutters Play Newport Gig

The Rumblestrutters will bring their unique brand of feel-good blues, jazz and ragtime of the Prohibition era to Newport’s Lyceum Folk Club on December 7.

The band’s vivid evocations of the music of the 1920s and ‘30s has earned them a reputation as one of the most authentic and popular roots bands around, with highlights including stellar performances at Birmingham International Jazz Festival and Gloucester Blues Festival.

The band came together during a spring clean when Jon Toft (vocals, mandolin, banjo) found an ink jug at the back of an old cupboard, the Swansea-based acoustic three-piece also features the virtuoso guitar playing and voice of Jonathan Nicholas, and Liam Ward on vocals, harmonica and jug.

The doors open at 8.00pm for an 8.30pm start. Tickets £8.00 available on the door or from Ruth on 07966754366.
