Gentlemen of Few

Gentlemen of Few were formed along the South-East coast of England in 2009, founded by four young musicians who each found a vast pleasure in their ensemble work as students. They shared a broad and varied history of musical experience between them, spanning multitudes of genres, styles and formats, opening up plenty of avenues for them to explore. Unknowingly, they drew close and familiar with the raucous energy and excitement they unearthed from American Roots, Rock and Bluegrass songs and these they played loud and fast.
