The Coal Porters are embarking on their sixth British tour with an all-new line-up, and will be stopping in Somerset next month.

Paul Fitzgerald and Kerenza Peacock will join the band in wowing audiences across the country on their new tour.

The Coal Porters started playing acoustic music in 2002 when ex-Long Ryder Sid Griffin decided to step away from electric music.

Since then the band’s combination of folk, indie, bluegrass and Celtic music has showcased the power of a fiddle, mandolin, banjo, doghouse bass and acoustic guitar.

The band is made up of Sid, his co-founder Neil Robert Herd, Andrew Stafford, Paul and Kerenza, who has performed in superstar Adele’s band.

The Coal Porters will be at the Bridgwater Arts Centre, in Castle Street, at 8pm on October 14.

Tickets, priced £13-14, are available from 01278 422700 or online at
