Graham Seaman

2 February 2017

If you’ve been to one of our more recent shows, you might have noticed that another guitarist has been sneaking onto the stage with us. This is the redoubtable Graham D’Annunzio-Seaman, an old friend of ours, who has been playing guitar, mandolin and bouzouki with us, as well as adding some killer harmoy vocals. As was the legendary Ian Stewart to the Stones, so is Graham to us.

He will be with us at our next show – 23 February at the Cavern, at Jimmy Rae and the Moonshine Girls album launch.

“The Long Unbroken Line” has been included at #3 in his Best Of 2016 by the legendary Spencer Leigh, of Country Music People and BBC fame.

This is indeed a thrill for us – Spencer is well known for not being afraid to write a bad review! – and we’d like to thank him for his integrity and his support.


MidWest Review

New Review of: “The Long Unbroken Line” from MidWest Record (US): 

“There seems to be a new underground in UK of UK based ‘Americana’ groups that are actually musos reclaiming the string band

music brought over here by those who would become hillbillies that would bring down home sounds to prominence. Too strong

to be just a labor of love, this married duo just plain hits it out of the park from the back porch giving organic sounds

a great treatment with just about no trace of them not being ‘authentic’ roots practitioners. Not exactly folk music, it’s

certainly some kind of folk hyphenate sound that’s entirely welcome. Hot stuff.”
