Lonely East Drifters
"We got both kinds of music here...we got country AND western". East Lonesome Drifters is a five-piece covers band that pay homage to traditional country, western swing, the Bakersfield Sound and bluegrass. Hailing from Pennsylvania USA, singer Crispy Cowboy gives authentic voice to the stories behind the songs - classics from the likes of Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Bob Wills, Gram Parsons, Buck Owens, Bob Dylan, Steve Earle and many others. With three part harmonies, acoustic guitar, pedal steel, telecaster and bass (and the occasional washboard, piano, dobro and harmonica thrown in) East Lonesome Drifters lay claim to being the most authentic honky tonk barroom band in the UK.
Well over 100 gigs since 2014 including UK festivals such as StowFest, Harlequin Festival and headlining Wanstead Festival 2016. Regulars at Sohoâ€™s Country Soul Sessions, in March 2016 the band played WIllie Nelsonâ€™s â€˜Phases and Stagesâ€™ LP in itâ€™s entirety and for the last two years have hosted an all-day 4th of July party in Stoke Newington.
