The Coal Porters are a unconventional five-piece acoustic band featuring former member of The Long Ryders Sid Griffin. Their latest release 'No.6' defies traditional boundaries of acoustic folk music which is why they proudly call themselves “the world’s first Alt-Bluegrass band.”
The Coal Porters have been reviewed favourably in everything from Billboard to Mojo to Uncut to The Guardian to The Observer to El Pais and The Los Angeles Times.
