Six Things To Know About The Hot Seats:

1) We like to play music, string-band music. We call it string-band music because it’s just too tedious to try and get into whether it’s old-time, bluegrass, ragtime, country, or general freakout music.

2) We have done so since 2002, mostly based out of Richmond, VA.

3) We’ve been lots of places, including all throughout the USA, the UK, Ireland, and a little piece of Europe. Some of our festival highlights have been: Tønder, Celtic Connections, The Shetland Folk Festival, The Orkney Folk Festival, South By Southwest, Floyd Fest, Bristol Rhythm and Roots Festival, The Watermelon Park Festival, The Northeast Kingdom Music Festival,  Didmarton Bluegrass Festival, Maverick Festival, HebCeltFest, Speyfest, Leicester Summer Sundae and multiple occasions Edinburgh Festival Fringe (including a Herald Angel Award in 2006).

4) We like to: play fast, be funny, spasm, herk and jerk, eat exotic and frightening things, and ride in a van.

5) We love each other, we love you!

6) We are Ben, Graham, Jake, Josh, and Ed.

Support:Rachael Jean Harris

Rachael played a beautiful set of her original songs at Grateful Fred’s in January of this year and we were so blown away we asked Rachael to return as soon as she could so we are delighted that she will be playing again for us to complete what will be a wonderful evening of live acoustic music.
