The Coal Porters started life as a folk band but have metamorphosed into an authentic all-acoustic Bluegrass band and never looked back.

Their album’s The Chris Hillman Tribute Concerts and Turn The Water On, Boy! built on this exciting new acoustic format, which audiences across the country instantly warmed to.

Their new album Durango has been released to rave reviews from Q and Uncut among other calling it ‘…bluegrass with a slyly authentic feel, but with the flinty rockisms of Crazy Horse or, indeed, Griffin’s other band, the Long Ryders.’
