"A gallon of bluegrass, a quart of the blues, a pinch of rockabilly, and a dash of hell fire! The Curst Sons have been playing their powerful stripped back take on early American traditional music since 1998. Performing mainly original material with a few distinctive arrangements of traditional songs they have released five albums on their own Curst Mountain label, played venues ranging from tiny country pubs to festival main stages, and recorded two live sessions for Mark Lamarr on BBC Radio 2."
"Got everybody jumpin’…a great band" JOHNNIE WALKER BBC RADIO 2
"Their biggest appeal is that they manage to stay true to American folk musics rich lineage, while throwing in enough
curve balls to p*ss off the folk puritanicals" AMERICANA UK"
Their unique rugged version of American roots music has a delightfully dirt-road quality to it" R2 MAGAZINE
