No Venue Too Large Or Too Small

While the current Covid-19 pandemic is preventing us from public performance, we are still happy to accept future bookings on the understanding that we will be happy to play in public when it is deemed safe to do so. We hope that all of our fans observe official advice during this difficult period and we also hope that you all stay safe and healthy in the meantime. We will look forward to seeing you all again on the other side.



Welcome to our website! If you’re looking for the best in Back-Porch Americana, Old Time and Good Time songs and tunes, coupled with dynamic dancing, look no further. With the authentic atmosphere of the Appalachian Mountains and the sounds of the Southern United States intimately intertwined with red-hot instrumental integrity, we deliver a performance you really should experience.  

What's more, we're as happy playing on huge Festival stages as we are in small intimate venues. Whether you need a headline act, or a support act in a packed programme, The Harvesters could be the very band you're looking for. Ask for more details on our Contact Us page.  

We also specialise in giving talks and demonstrations of Appalachian music and dance to societies and organisations, such as U3A, the Womens Institute and Festival workshops. 

Music to stir the soul and set the feet a-tapping!
