2017 Music Line Up
The legendary Nick Lowe will be bringing his incredible lyrics and melodies spanning 40 years of performing, alongside his magical dynamism to Euston Hall. With his own hits, “I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass” and “Cruel to Be Kind,” the songs he wrote for other artists such as “Peace, Love and Understanding” for Elvis Costello and “Beast in Me” he wrote […]
In 2015, Oklahoma’s JD McPherson released his sophomore full-length album, the Mark Neil-produced, Let The Good Times Roll, was described by The Observer as ‘the saviour rock n roll deserves.’ PopMatters called it, ‘a foot-stomping, ass-shaking thing of beauty.’
It all started for Nick Waterhouse with his DIY record “Some Place.” Dancefloors around the US lit up, Nick shining his beacon light cocktail of 1950s R&B and 1960s Soul and Boogaloo upon them. Since that record, Nick has toured the world and taken it one cool and elegant step at a time. He produced septuagenarian […]
Barrence Whitfield & The Savages

He has been described as the owner of one incredible pair of lungs, with limitless energy and unmatched enthusiasm for his music and his audience. Barrence is a rarity in this business – one of a few black, […]
Danny & The Champions of The World
Loose Records stars, Danny & The Champions Of The World have performed shows all over the world, the kind of legendary, life-affirming rock and soul revues (with country fringing) that have seduced them a global following, and which they finally committed to wax on last year’s glorious concert double-album, Live Champs!
If the Spanish town of Ubeda had its own rogues gallery honouring the misfits and outlaws whose boots had scuffed its dusty ground, three ‘Wanted’ posters would surely hang; a trio of mug shots simply referred to as ‘Guadalupe Plata’ – the most deathly delta blues outfit to ever emerge from Andalusia. “Take rockabilly, flamenco, […]
Straight out of Texas, Cale Tyson is bringing his outlaw country to a new generation of country music fans. At just 25, he’s breaking all boundaries and bringing his traditional sound with a modern twist to a whole new world of country music. His sweet yet melancholy lyrics feel like they were probably written on […]
Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys
Since forming 25 years ago, Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys have toured continuously and become torchbearers of American roots music. With a dynamic live show, Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys at once acknowledge and celebrate the past while setting the stage for further exploration and interpretation of the musical forms they are most passionate about.
King Salami & The Cumberland Three
In 2006, one Japanese punk, one French punk, one Spanish punk, and one Caribbean tennis teacher got together to form the world’s greatest rhythm & blues party band. You couldn’t make it up.
Originally signed to maverick pop label Heavenly who got Sony backing to release their first album. The self-titled debut The Rockingbirds came out to critical acclaim in 1992, and was loved equally by alternative music fans, country aficionados and singer-songwriter buffs.

Their live show mines Tyler’s extensive repertoire of original songs recorded variously by The Rockingbirds, The Lost Sons of Littlefield, and his other solo records.
My Darling Clementine
For what began life as a side project for Michael Weston King & Lou Dalgleish, a labour of love, a homage to the classic country duets, My Darling Clementine is now very much part of the country and Americana landscape, courtesy of 3 critically acclaimed albums, over 350 shows across Europe and N. America, and numerous awards
With performances guaranteed to melt your heart into the soles of your cowboy boots, her passionate delivery, captivating velvet voice and charmingly engaging between-song banter compel you to fall under her spell
The Wandering Hearts
To paint a picture of The Wandering Hearts one would need to find their most blood red hard earned brush. Recently signed to Decca Records, they’re an Americana / Country music group from London that came together almost in defiance of the current zeitgest of rhinestone hats and Fender guitar UK country-rock
Great Sea Gospel
Euston’s very own “Izo FitzRoy,” sister to The Duke, heads up this formidable choir. Not to be missed!
The Kentucky Cow Tippers
Their unique approach to bluegrass draws from a deep appreciation of every aspect of the genre: they’ve absorbed everything from traditional Appalachian harmonies and fiddle tunes through to the psych/country-tinged sounds of Old & In the Way and the Seldom Scene, as well as progressive “Newgrass” by the likes of Béla Fleck and Punch Brothers.
The Hanging Stars
Blending folk pastoralism with swampy 60s Americana, The Hanging Stars sound like the missing link between the California desert sun and the grey skies of London Town. The album was recorded between LA, Nashville and Walthamstow, with each of these vastly different places leaving an indelible mark on the songs. The band is made up […]
Looking dapper in his antique suits and using a pair of specially-adapted turntables and a staggering collection of vintage 78rpm shellac records, DJ78 delights in unearthing vintage tunes
