Ramshackle Union Band

 The Ramshackle Union Band peddle a fine line in stomping bluegrass-tinged-folk, playing with big heart and a free-spirited ethos. Heralded by NME as “woozy bluegrass for weary hearts and bleeding minds”, their sound is in debt to classic roots music, while feeling vital and fresh. Based in London, the Ramshacklers had been friends for years before forming the band in late 2009 and have been constantly performing all over the capital ever since, as well as hosting their own notorious Ramshackle knees-ups. Based around rich four-part harmonies, with raucous, tumbling rhythms and equal penchant for loverlorn heartbreak and giddy good times, they're fast rising as one of the most talked-about new folk bands around. Hard at work recording material for their new EP, and with a jam-packed gigging calendar, their wagon looks set only to accelerate further in 2012.
