Haven't posted in the Country/Folk forum for a while... to be honest I haven't had a good enough reason to, until I discovered this absolute peach of a band called - Hunter & The Bear!!
- (Stolen from their website)Hunter & The Bear are a British group lead by Jimmy Hunter & Will Irvine.
Inspired by artists such as The Band, Dire Straits and Bruce Springsteen, Will & Jimmy started to write and perform as a duo with Jimmy playing lead guitar, mandolin and backing vocal whilst beside him Will on the rhythm guitar and singing lead vocals. Having started the band in Newcastle where they were studying at University they moved to London in 2012 to bring their own brand of power folk to the huddled masses. Gareth Thompson, drums and Chris Clark, bass, completed the line up in 2014 to bring you a live set up you don’t want to miss.
If you have ever been to the North of England (or even beyond the wall) you will understand why this song is just simply Brilliant!
It also makes me feel patriotic for Scotland for some strange reason... although I'm not Scottish
Would love to hear your thoughts on the two tracks anyway?
