How Was It For You?

“Just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed Saturday evening and it was great that we got a good turnout in the end.  Really liked Bright Shadows too.  The sound and lighting were great too; all round a lovely show” – Scott Warman (Porchlight Smoker)


Often described as the ‘real deal’, every Porchlight Smoker show is different and no song is ever performed quite the same way twice. They play a varied and at times virtuoso repertoire that mixes self-penned works with covers made very much their own. A range of instruments, including banjo, guitar, lapsteel, stand-up bass and mandolin, even clarinet, accompany the band’s trademark four-part vocal harmonies.
Porchlight Smoker’s live gigs show off the band’s multi-national song writing talents, with Scott Smith, from Wichita, Kansas, bringing his extensive knowledge of the American folk tradition, Scotsman Steve Bell’s Celtic folk influence, and London born Fred Gregory’s well, very English identity all combining to form the band’s unique and exciting sound.
