The Wagon Tales
Hot picking UK based Bluegrass and Americana band - with a cast of musicians that reads more like a Jules Holland show than an Old Opry! But boy, these guys can pick and sing! Ben Somers - Multi instrumentalist and son of Steve Somers plays bass and sings with The Wagon Tales by night and by day plays saxophone for the likes of Dizzee Rascal. Joe Auckland - Banjoist for the Wagon Tales can also be seen playing trumpet with Madness, treading the Ronnie Scott's stage with Joe Stilgoe and be heard mincing around with Girls Aloud. Kate Robinson - Fiddles with The Wagon Tale, The European Camarata, Susan Boyle and can be seen peddling her wares with most of the leading orchestras around the UK. Marcus Bonfanti - A great artist in his own right. Can regularly be seen seen tearing it up with his fiery flatpicking and gravelly vocals. He and Ben met playing with American blues artist Earl Thomas. Steve Somers - The Daddy! Another great artist in his own right. Steve has led a varied and interesting musical career having been sideman to Glen Campbell, Don Everly, been a member of folk/pop group The Settlers and has led many of his own groups. Now residing in France, Steve can often be seen clogging, playing guitar and singing with his son Ben and The Wagon Tales.
