Description

The Whiskey Poets are a UK-based alt. country-blues outfit, fronted by international bestselling author, RJ Ellory, and featuring Martin Smith (formerly of ELO). Playing original material, they present a unique and dynamic range of songs that possess an appeal both musically and narratively. The Whiskey Poets' debut album, 'Low Country' features Platinum-selling percussionist, Hossam Ramzy. They have recently released an EP ( 'A Quiet Belief'), which introduces songs titled after Ellory's novels, namely, 'A Quiet Belief in Angels', 'Kings of America', 'Bad Signs' and 'A Dark and Broken Heart'.

We're delighted to welcome Roger and Martin to Louder 2018. Their distinctive set will include an 'in conversation' intersperced with their EP's book title numbers plus additional acoustic songs to ensure a treat of a set with a difference. #Music #Lyrics #Books #Conversation #Performance - a perfect cocktail on offer from the Whiskey Poets - we'll see you there!
