It’s not a popular name in the UK for some unfathomable reason, but The Dustbowl Sinners are what they’d call an Old-Timey Stringband in the States. With admittedly the unusual addition of accordion and prominent harmonica, but even so. The Dustbowl Sinners hail out of Staines, close by to the not soon to be increased in size Heathrow Airport and have a healthy sense of humour about their authenticity.
Keith Richards has said that they are “The only decent thing to ever come out of Staines“, and they themselves add that their “playing of soulful Roots and Americana music most Thursday evenings after tea, has become their only release from the merciless savagery of day to day existence in the abyss of wretchedness that is North Surrey / South-West Middlesex.” Adding that the band was “formed in 2018, and now making huge waves right across Woking’s Americana scene.”
And well they might do, as ‘Winters Bone‘ appealingly taps into a mournful desperation. It’s taken from their upcoming EP ‘Wake Up Sinners‘ for which there will be a release party on 5th April at The Spice Of Life in the darkest corner of London’s Soho.
