In retrospect it’s obvious that horror and country music go together like peas and carrots – it just took Graveyard Train to show us. Utilising old-timey instruments (banjo, dobro and washboard) with the unorthodox percussion of hammer and chain, all underneath a six-part baritone ‘manchoir’ vocal delivery, Graveyard Train have created a unique sound and an equally unique way to deliver it. Exclusively singing songs and stories about death, despair, vampires, werewolves and anything macabre, Graveyard Train have drawn on the storytelling styles of old folk songs and mashed it with a punk/rockabilly/country frenetic foot stomping energy to create Horror Country. Saturday 28 Jan at Byron Brewery.
