Famous Potatoes


Having appeared at every Leigh Folk Festival bar two, the 8-piece Famous Potatoes are a local institution. Their repertoire encompasses such a broad range of transatlantic folk and roots styles that the band decided many years ago it was easier to invent a new genre when asked the question what type of music they played. So ‘soil music’ was born, an earthy transatlantic blend of old-timey, bluegrass, and western as well as Irish, Scottish, and English folk.
