A RAUCOUS brand of edgy Americana promises an exciting opener for Boston Folk Club’s new season at The Eagle on Monday.
Locally-based outfit Unshaven play an energetic mix of numbers from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Steve Earle, Johnny Cash and Tom Russell.
They include haunting ballads and several self-penned numbers in a well-rounded live set.
Unshaven can usually muster as many as eight members on stage, featuring instruments from fiddle to harmonica and piano accordion to percussion, in addition to guitars and the distinctive vocals of John Ingamells.
The band have evolved over their four and a half years together, with guitarist John and fellow founder member Ian Popple (guitar and penny whistle) joined by fiddle player Julie Robinson, Barry Forbes on harmonica, Graham Neish on piano accordion, bassist Steve Robinson, Jason Smith on percussion and newest recruit, drummer Kev Whitaker.
Unshaven have appeared at a variety of venues including the Heckington Show, Bateman’s Brewery, the Music Train - and even in a fish and chip shop.
The show at Boston Folk Club is on Monday, September 12, upstairs at the Eagle in West Street. The music starts at 8.15pm.
