We’re pleased to welcome Green Rock River Band back to the centre - it’s starting to become an annual tradition!

The Green Rock River Band are a hybrid of sounds that universally connects with audiences all over, echoing music hall, americana, folk and jazz, all blended with a contemporary sound and performance. They present modern songwriting and arrangements for 21st century audiences wanting to connect with a music that runs a little deeper, a little more primitive than the clean over produced sound of modern folk and pop. A Green Rock River Band show will promise loud, brash string band music; banjos, fiddles, guitars and washboards all over-scored by melodic trombone and soaring three part harmonies.

They have always focused on the craft of songwriting. Sometimes this has led them to write big boozy anthems, at other times they emerge with striking ballads, sensitive songs that reach out to audiences of all ages and backgrounds. It’s the universal appeal of their songs that elevates them as one of the UK’s top original folk bands. Their sound inevitably is compared to the popular folk pop bands around at the moment, and while the roots of these bands are obviously similar, the Green Rock River Band offers something alternative to these clean cut stadium bands, there is a refreshing grit and dirt to their songs, a sweaty energy that fills up venues with excitement and atmosphere.
