Renowned for their superb live shows, The Mountain Firework Company return to The Lamb Folk Club on Wednesday, February 3.
The Mountain Firework Company is an acoustic five piece based in Brighton. After a number of well-received gigs their first album, A Rough Guide To Feeling Rough, was recorded above a pub they played in, and released online winning many new fans.
The follow-up was critically acclaimed second album Samurai, and the most recent was Lonesome Losing Blues.
Led by Irish singer-songwriter Gareth McGahan, their beautifully crafted songs are equal parts darkness and cheeky humour.
Working in the fields of country, folk and bluegrass, their unique sound is topped by Gareth’s distinctive Irish accent along with gorgeous vocal harmonies.
Simultaneously mournful and upbeat, their driving and melodic music comes from an all acoustic string band line up of guitars, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, double bass and percussion.
With a large and devoted fanbase, the band has delighted audiences at venues all over the UK, including the prestigious ‘Celtic Connections’, with performances that bristle with energy, melody and vitality.
All are welcome and admission is £7 on the door with students and under 16s half price. The doors open at 7.30pm and the number for any enquiries is 01323 728268.
