Dirty Cello, a San Francisco based blues and Americana band is bringing their unique, high energy sound to Leicester later this month.
The band, a five-piece string ensemble, is travelling across the pond to make their debut at The Musician on June 26.
“This will be our third tour to the UK, and our first time at The Musician,” said Rebecca Roudman the band’s front-woman, who is a renowned classical cellist.
“We specialise in unique venues that are off the beaten path.”
‘Dirty Cello’ is fresh off a tour to the far northern reaches of Iceland where they played many shows including a slightly confused cowboy festival held in their honour.
“Everyone in the town dressed like American style cowboys,” revealed Rebecca, who founded the band eight years ago.
“There were cowboy hats, camouflage clothes, beer drinking contests, and even a slightly confused singalong of Country Roads.”
Also on that tour, the band played in an old fish processioning factory with the smell of herring still lingering in the air.
When it comes to the band’s sound, Dirty Cello brings the world a high energy and unique spin on blues, rock, and Americana.
“There’s even a smattering of classic rock like the Rolling Stones thrown in”, revealed Ms Roudman.
“Dirty Cello’s shows are all about high energy and fun. The band is known for taking everything a bit uptempo, running into the crowd, and prompting classic singalongs”, she added.
Dirty Cello will be playing The Musician on June 26 from 8-11 pm.
