Broomsticks and Hammers
Winners of the 2016 Folk/Roots Jack Richardson London Music Award, Broomsticks & Hammers continues and builds on the folk/roots tradition of taking songs grounded in stories of the human condition and treating these stories with great musicianship and exciting band dynamics. On record, the songs shine through alongside the band’s keen ear for thoughtful and sometimes quirky musical treatments. Live, the force of a seven-piece unit comes to the fore as the band traverses folk, rock, country, and even a little jazz and blues with ease.
Since it's founding in 2013 the band has built a strong local fan base, playing local clubs, community-centred events, and supporting a variety of charitable causes.
