From LITTLEgiants acoustic roots has grown a new kind of string band with on foot in the past and one firmly in the future, taking inspiration from Honky Tonkers, old time string bands, mountain music and country blues but writing and arranging songs in their own timeless style.
From close country harmonies to stompin’ old time, murder ballads to sweet love songs, high and lonesome to low down and dirty all supplied by the plucking of strings suspended on a variety of different sized and shaped wooden boxes and accompanied by the vocal chords.
Supplying these sounds are husband and wife team Martin Nuttall on vocals, guitar, banjo and dobro and Ruth Nuttall on vocals, occasional accordion and clarinet, supplying the grounding, the glue that holds it all together is Morley Hilton on upright bass.
LITTLEgiants have appeared across the UK to rapturous applause, having recently supported The Dirt Daubers on part of their UK tour and previously supporting the likes of Dirt Daubers, the Wiyos, Sweetback Sisters, Pete Molinari and Emily Barker and red clay halo.
Their debut recording, the 5 track EP “Welcome to our House” was recorded and produced by the band ‘live’ around a single microphone in the front room that is their practice space with no over dubs or fancy stuff to give an honest representation of the bands down home sound.
