Palmerston, who have successfully evaded being stuck in a genre, (They say they always take a shovel) will be performing live on Black Cat Radio on Thursday 11th August between 7-9pm.
“An effin orchestra” claimed one innocent bystander. “I only nipped out for a quick one, next thing I know, I’ve bought all their albums!”
Keyboard & Concertina, Fiddle & Squeezebox, Harmonica & Guitar, Bass & Banjo, Mandolin & Percussion. Five-Part Harmonies.
The band are widely travelled (Milton Keynes, Slapton etc.) and were recently supporting Albert Lee who said afterwards:
“The gentlemen of Palmerston guarantee you an exciting evening of music which involves styles past and good times galore. But the music is fresh, invigorating, all theirs and a must see-and-hear.”
Palmerston’s line-up is as follows:
Original songs written by Alan Rondeau mainly because he has his own pen. Alan also plays mandolin, guitar and sings.
Martin Hartup who apparently wears check shirts so he can find them, Plays Guitar (with a slice of bread in the sound hole) & Sings
Dave Norman who has a heart of gold and wishes he could remember where he put it, plays Bass & Sings
Andy Powell plays Banjo (when no-one is listening!), Harmonica, random Concertina & Sings
Peter Ball plays Keyboard, Fiddle, Accordion & Sings (as far as we can tell!)
