Back to Tooting Folk by popular demand, Hatful of Rain are an East Sussex  trio made up of Chloe Overton – vocals, guitar, banjo, mandolin and harmonica. Phil Jones, double bass, vocals, guitar, banjo and Fred Gregory, guitar, vocals and mandolin. Their music is a blend of Folk/Americana styles, centred round songs with timeless themes of love and loss, domestic hardships, migration, identity, celebration & grief. They have released 4 CDs to date and toured widely in the UK on the folk circuit; pubs & bars, villages halls, festivals, house concerts and theatres. Originally a four piece, 2019 brings a period of change – following the retirement of fiddle player James Shenton.

Saturday 4 May 2019  – Brazen Thieves plus floor spots

Sisters Laura (vocals/violin) and Rebecca (vocals/guitar/concertina) were raised on folk music. They began their recent foray into folk by adapting songs and arrangements originally selected by their father, Clive Woolf, for his sets when he was playing on the scene in the late 60s/early 70s. This inspired the name Brazen Thieves.  Together as a quartet with Mark (guitar) and Lucy (vocals/cello), Brazen Thieves combine contemporary and classical influences to create new and interesting takes on traditional songs, with a strong emphasis on harmony singing.
