East Lonesome Drifters
East Lonesome Drifters are a UK country & western band paying homage to traditional honky tonk, western swing, the Bakersfield Sound and bluegrass – with all the original energy and edge of electric bar bands from country’s classic era.
Hailing from Southwestern Pennsylvania, singer Crispy Cowboy gives authentic voice to the stories behind the songs – handpicked gems from the likes of Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Harlan Howard, Gram Parsons, Buck Owens, Bob Dylan, Steve Young, Willie Nelson and many others. Inspired by these great writers the band have recently recorded and released their debut EP of original songs, showcasing their road-tested live lineup: three part harmonies, pedal steel, acoustic guitar, telecaster, piano, kick drum and electric bass.
