Preaching From the Pews: Mary Epworth & The Jubilee Band

MARYEPOfficial SiteFaceBook

Pretend you’ve put The Jesus & Mary Chain into a blender, sprinkled them with the remains of Fairport Convention, and consoled them with the hazy memory of festivals gone by. Then you’ve given them a tumbler full of whiskey and told them to buck the hell up or get out. That’s what Mary Epworth and the Jubilee Band sound like. They’re amazing. Trust me.

Comprised of front woman and namesake Mary Epworth and her band – Will Twynham, Gordy, Helene, Alex and Jayne – to date they’ve released two singles: Black Doe and The Saddle Song were both put out on Hand of Glory in 2010. Mary’s harpsicord, synth and harmony laden debut album is being recorded as we speak.

They’ll play Cardiff’s Glee Club on 1st May. For more information go here.
