The Washboard Resonators hail from Leeds in England and can be described as sounding and looking like ‘a ragtime street band meets a Hollywood musical on a theatre stage somewhere in around 1932’.
Their favourite performers include the jazz, ragtime, hokum, blues, comedy and vaudeville sounds of Louis Armstrong, Blind Boy Fuller, Fred Astaire, The Washboard Rhythm Kings, Robert Johnson, Gene Krupa, Max Miller, Tampa Red and The Memphis Jug Band.
The spirit of these long gone artists and their music is summoned every time Martyn and Jack take the stage with their mixture of old traditional songs and new songs written by the band.
