I happened upon Keston Cobblers’ Club on myspace recently. After watching this video I think you’ll agree that they are something very special and are certainly worth keeping an eye on as they are bound to get very popular!
Here is the video to Keston Cobblers’ Club new single “You-Go”
Keston Cobblers’ Club: Cavity Wall (Shoes off Session #1)
Keston Cobblers’ Club History
Once upon a time, many, many years ago, in the little village of Keston there was a man who mended shoes…The Cobblers’ business was struggling, but with the pennies he had inherited from his late father, he bought himself an old fiddle and would cheer himself up by playing till the early hours of the morning in the rickety old public house on the corner. Before the warm fires and under the cavernous ceilings, village folk would gather, fill their jugs with beer and dance with each other to the jolly haphazardness of his music.
Such was the hearsay of the evening’s merrymaking that the following week villagers flocked from as far as Hayes, bringing instruments, tools and kitchen utensils, and one by one, joined in the music-making. Soon the Keston Cobblers’ Club was born.
The toe tapping and dancing of hundreds of feet had destroyed the soles of their shoes within hours…and from that day onwards, business was always busy for the Cobbler.
Now, two centuries later, Keston Cobblers’ Club is back, embracing contemporary styles and traditional melodies. Turn the speaker up loud, grab your pair of finest boots and tap along until your soles wear thin!!
