Classic Country & Western band East Lonesome Drifters host an evening of live music and happy hour prices with a guest band every month at the Mascara Bar, 72 Stamford Hill, London. FREE ENTRY!

2nd Nov 2014 with Turnstile Junkpile
14th Dec 2014 with Dana Immanuel and band
4th Jan 2015 guest band TBA

With acoustic arrangements of Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie, Bob Wills, Gram Parsons, Bob Dylan and other traditional influences East Lonesome Drifters wind their way down country paths of Americana with three part harmonies, fiddle, steel guitars, acoustic guitar and ukelele bass. Some accordion, washboard and harmonica often thrown in and the results stay true to their roots music influences while providing a subtle spin on the genre.

Sounds fun! You doing one in March? By my reckoning that should (might?) fall on the 8th, when I'll be in town. Be interesting to pop along!

Hi Kev, thanks for your interest, to my knowledge we are doing one in February, March and thereafter but I don't have the dates confirmed yet. I'll post here when I know. Hope you can make it!

Hi Kev, I've had confirmation that we're on for 8th of March, guest band TBA. Hope to see you there, we had a great night with the Swamp Bros last night but as always we need more support from country music fans to keep it going.

The first C&W night of the year went really well with our best crowd so far surprising us by turning out in numbers so soon after New Year. As Panama Red attest, the quality of guest bands has been fantastic and we're continuing with some really exciting bookings this year. Don't forget, entry is free and prices are £3 a pint until 10pm. House band East Lonesome Drifters play two sets of authentic country, bluegrass and western swing covers featuring singer Patrick Hart (originally from Pittsburgh, PA), pedal steel, fiddle, dobro and harmonies. Our guest bands represent the very best in up and coming country & americana from London, the south east and beyond. A hat is passed for musicians; if you're not entertained you don't pay!

Next month features the fantastic all-female Dana Emmanuel and the Stolen Band, after that we're looking forward to hosting friends of ours from Leicester, the ever wonderful four-piece Mr Plow. I was particularly excited to have been contacted through this board by the Jackson Creek Band who we'll be playing with in April – can't wait for that!

8th February with Dana Emmanuel and The Stolen Band
8th March with Mr Plow

We're looking forward to April, too! We're learning some new tunes for the gig, as well. Roll on spring. :D

Unfortunately due to illness Mr Plow have had to cancel their appearance tonight. East Lonesome Drifters will play two sets of barroom honky tonk and western classics and we have special guest Felix Holt and possibly one other artist filling in. It would be great to have some support for local live music from members of this forum!

With two US singers fronting two great bands you will not see a more authentic FREE ENTRY evening of country and western than April 12th at the Mascara Bar. Guaranteed!

Let me tell you the Jackson Creek Band are the real deal, fantastic country music at it's best and lovely people too. We've yet to see any support for these nights from members of this board but I live in hope, it would be great to meet some of you.
