Strange As Folk

  Listen & Watch  


A three piece band playing their a blend of bluegrass, country, jazz and swingto create a familiar yet unique foot tapping sound. Strange as Folk have entertained crowds throughout the UK with their stunning playing and showman's spirit. 

After hearing each other play around the Bluegrass/Country circuit, these guys simply couldn't resist the chance to make music together.


John on banjo is the only European to have ever won the USA National Bluegrass Banjo Championships. Iain passed his grade 8 in guitar at the tender age of 12, whilst Russ has been recognised as one of the finest rockabilly double bassists both in the UK and the USA. They can also add a fiddle player to the line-up, just ask upon enquiring!
