The Coalminers

With their dedication to what they like to refer to as “Swamp Soul” this brilliant 7 piece band bring the rhythm and soul of New Orleans alive, playing songs ranging from Professor Longhair to Allen Toussaint, Mardi gras parade anthems to Fats Domino Rock & Roll classics and the swampy funk of The Meters and Dr John. They take their name from the Toussaint/Dorsey song 'Working In A Coalmine'

The band features the brilliant singer Tommy Hare who has been burning a bright trail in the UK blues scene over the last few years. 

The rest of the band is equally as impressive. Drummer / bandleader Pat Levett has played with Tim Minchin, Tom Jones, Amy Winehouse Zigaboo Modeliste (The Meters) and the Ronnie Scott's All Stars, Vocalist / pianist Arthur Lea, includes work with the likes of Bootleg Brass and Soweto Kinch on a massive and eclectic cv. Rob Updegraff has recently been performing and recording with Sony artist Alani and can be heard on Jamie Cullum’s latest album alongside Gregory Porter and Laura Mvula, bass player Spencer Brown has performed with the likes of Andy Sheppard, Alan Barnes, Rebecca Ferguson and indie star Carl Barat.
