Get On The Big Train!

Big Train is the soundtrack to a bonfire singalong?the smoke just happens to be coming from vintage amps. Big Train is an amplified guitar/harmonica duo playing a wide range of deep south blues, old school country, traditional folk, and whatever else happens to feel right at the time. Equally comfortable as background music for a crowded pub or filling a spotlight, Big Train is always looking for new fans of that sweet 'ol tone.

"If you know the tune we're playing, feel free to sing along. If you really like the song we're doing, but it doesn't sound familiar, well that's one of our originals!"
