Apologies for the recent radio silence. The first part of 2013 has been a busy one for us with gigs all over the South East. We've taken some tentative strides into the world of gig promoting and had an absolute riot putting on "Dirty Linen" and "Electric Folk" in East London and Canterbury respectively. We've also played a few folk clubs and would like to thank Loughton Folk Club, Lost Horizons Folk Club and Tooting Folk Club for making us so welcome. In the meantime, we're busy sorting out our summer calendar and have already been booked for some fantastic events. One might even be a little festival in darkest Merton Farm... Keep checking the gig page for details.
The University Christmas holidays are here meaning the delightful Matt Dear has returned to us. As a result we are doing a run of gigs over the festive period throughout Kent and London, and It would be great to see you all for some festive cheer, and perhaps even carols! We would also like to say thankyou to everyone who has come to see us in 2012 and an extra specal thanks to those who bought our album 'Now Is The Time'.Merry Christmas to you all, and see you in 2013.
We haven't posted an update in a while but that doesn't mean we haven't been busy! The last couple of months have seen us play to packed crowds at the Faversham Hop Festival and Tenterden Folk Festival, as well as support the amazing James Yorkston at Revelation St Marys in Ashford, and providing a soundtrack to the hugely successful production of 'The Winter's Tale' put on by the Canterbury Players at the Gulbenkian in Canterbury. 'Now Is The Time' is continuing to sell well, many thanks to all of you who have bought it and if you haven't, Christmas is just around the corner! Our track 'London Pride/Eliza Lee' can be found on the latest Fatea Showcase Session compilation 'Winter12:Homewards' which is available to download from their website, so be sure to do that as there are some great artists on it. We also have plenty of gigs coming up so check the gigs page to see if there is one near you. We also did something hugely exciting last weekend, one day we will tell you all about it, here is a picture to put you on for now ...
We have just got back from another hugely successful Broadstairs Folk Week which was the perfect way to launch 'Now Is The Time'. Thanks to all those who came to watch and bought the CD, it really does mean a lot to us. The album is available NOW from the store tab above, and is also available on Spotify and iTunes, so give it a listen and let us know what you think!
'The Hop Festival Song' from our forthcoming album, is now available as a FREE download from https://soundcloud.com/green-diesel/the-hop-festival-song. Don't forget that the album is available to pre-order by clicking on the 'Store' tab above.
Owing to delays in the production process, the release date of our album has been put back to SATURDAY 11TH AUGUST. This coincides with our dates at Broadstairs folk week, so we hope to see many of you there to help us celebrate the launch. We will be offering a free download of one of the tracks to tide you over till the release date, details to be announced later this week
We're currently in the studio working on our debut album, 'Now Is The Time' and preparing for the summer tour. The songs are sounding great and we cannot wait to play the new material to you all. We're hoping for an early July release date.
