MALCOLM MACWATT


Age 12 and just getting into the guitar, Scottish musician Malcolm MacWatt first heard ‘Johnny Cash At San Quentin’ and was immediately hooked into country music. While a deep respect for country and bluegrass is evident in his songs and guitar playing, MacWatt freely shows his British folk roots citing John Martyn and Dick Gaughan as major influences. A Transatlantic Records promo featuring Pentangle and Fairport Convention introduced the idea that folk, rock, blues and jazz could be fused together in any combination.
A self-confessed “guitar geek” he moved to London in 2010 to study guitar-making with some of the UK’s top luthiers. He is the founding member of emerging London country band The Glass Mountains playing guitar, dobro and fiddle.

TED KAY AND THE KINGSTONS


Ted Key was the original bass player and songwriter for the 1980s iconic, ground-breaking band TheHousemartins. He received BPI gold discs for his contributions to the albums “London 0 – Hull 4”, and “Now That’s What I Call Quite Good”, and toured with the Housemartins for almost two years before leaving to continue with cult Hull punk-a-billy band The Gargoyles, with singer Eddie Smith and drummer Hugh Whitaker.
He diverted into a 25-year career as a Maths teacher, during which time he still managed to spend ten years as guitarist with internationally-acclaimed Johnny Cash tribute band, Keep it Cash.
While supporting Pete Wylie (The Mighty Wah!) in Hull, Ted was spotted by producer Paul Greendale, who brought him to London for a handful of solo spots. This naturally led on to forming the band in March 2017 – Ted Key and The Kingstons. With Paul on bass and renowned Ladbroke Grove drummer Nick Harrison, they formed a folky, reggaefied power trio, with memorable tunes and thought-provoking, story-driven lyrics, powered on with blazing harmonica.
They have now performed 20 gigs in Hull and London, including supporting The Vibrators and The Members, headline slots at Portobello Live! Festival, and a residency at the famous KPH bar on Ladbroke Grove. A video for debut single “The Queen of Ella Street” has recently shot on location in West London and Hull.
The band spent 2018 recording debut LP, “Raconteur Rock” at Studio West Eleven, in the heart of West London’s Portobello Road. Produced by Paul Greendale, the album will be released in all formats on Jan 25th 2019, at thesame time as debut single “The Queen of Ella Street”
