Neil Bob Herd and Paul Fitzgerald (from the Coal Porters), Torphichen Inn, Friday, 04. October 2019

Regulars at the Torphichen Inn will recall a memorable night we had a few years ago with The Coal Porters. This October we are delighted to welcome Neil Bob Herd as one of the songwriting mainstays from that band. Neil will be joined on stage by Paul Fitzgerald. Paul formerly featured with the Coal Porters and also features in Neil's Dlab project (a.k.a. the Dirtly Little Acoustic Band).

Every Soul a Story (Cattle Call Music) is the debut solo album from Neil Bob Herd, formerly guitarist / vocalist / songwriter in the acclaimed "alt Bluegrass" band, The Coal Porters.
Adding a little more twang and electricity to the 'Porters acoustic palette, the same songwriting acumen, wry humour and sideways observation of the human condition is very much in evidence. As the title suggests, the forthcoming LP features a cast of real and invented characters pondering faith, reincarnation, betrayal, hope and plain old "getting friendly".

Herd's songs are muscular and earthy (Blabber and Smoke)
A model of good songwriting (Louder Than War)
