    Not on the last Sunday of the month this month – we are breaking the CDAMTF law by having our gig a week before on 24 August in order to take advantage of the bank holiday Monday afterwards. Come down and celebrate 18 years of Come Down and Meet the Folks – we started at the Engine Room late summer 1996. Blimey! Co-Pilgrim are Mike Gale (vocals and guitar) with Joe Bennett (also in the Dreaming Spires, on guitars and stuff), Tom Wenzel (drums) Andy Reaney (bass) and Claire Bennett (vocals). Their album, A Fairer Sea was produced by Mark Gardener (Ride). The write ups sum up their sound pretty well… “Marries Jayhawks harmonies to wafting Beach Boys Tunes” (Q). “A swoonsome slice of Americana” (God Is In The TV). “Very beautiful album” (Bob Harris BBC2). “This is one of my favourite discoveries” (Steve Lamacq BBC6). Snakeoil Rattlers London based renegade country band The Snakeoil Rattlers play whiskey driven songs of the South mixing bluegrass, rock, and the outlaw sounds of the South. The band consist of members from The Rockingbirds, The Redlands Palomino Company, Foghorn Leghorn and a Hallelujah Trail: Barry 'The Snake Oil Man' Warren (Vocals, Guitar, Harmonica) Kevin 'Swamp Dawg' O'Neill (Vocals, Lap Steel), Colin 'Rain' Rainey (Bass Guitar), Lyle "Sh*thead" Zimmerman (Guitar, Mandolin), and Dave Morgan (Drums).
