The Coal Porters


“Great harmony singing and memorable songs that often recall a British Flying Burrito Brothers or a back porch Ronnie Lane”   Mojo Magazine **** 

“Not your average fish and chips bluegrass, the Coal Porters have expanded their music with broad strokes and fearless execution.”  Chris Hillman (Byrds/Flying Burrito Bros/Desert Rose) 

“...the Coal Porters whisk together a hugely listenable cocktail of bluegrass, folk and country..."  Uncut Magazine ****                      

“Sid Griffin was playing Americana years before the term was invented and that pioneer spirit shines on with his current band, the Coal Porters.”   Billy Bragg

“Swell picking, sweet vocals, strong tunes...a bucketful of tradition”  Time Out
