The Holcombe Family String Band

on

The Holcombe Family String Band are a Leeds based band influenced by the ragtime, hot jazz, hokum and western swing of the 1920’s and 30’s.

Following prestigious supports opening for the likes of CW Stoneking, Sheesham & Lotus & Son, Curtis Eller’s American Circus, Simone Felice, The Dad Horse Experience and The Stray Birds, numerous festival appearances and plays on BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Introducing, The Holcombe Family String Band have won over fans of traditional and early roots music, taking something steeped in the past and highlighting the perpetual relevance of a music often thought of as primitive or archaic.

“It’s ridiculously infectious stuff. A set of beautiful, authentic and fun songs. The Holcombe Family String Band offer a fully immersive experience for a time we all carry a kind of collective, cinematic nostalgia for. Absolutely faultless.” – Soundblab

“The country quartet play it like they mean it, and have a genuine feel for the genre.” – Culturefly

“Their sound is as infectious as the Memphis Flu” – Fatea Magazine
