...have bluesy swampy tones and sing about a few sideshow characters. Brothers Grimm fairy tales and wondering what sort of Organ your listening to. The White Russians are Ben Etchells: Vocals and guitar, Chris McDougall: Bass, Martin Lynch: Guitar, Henrik: Organ and Simon Parsons and are available for BBQ’s.

This veteran of the folk music circuit is now having his live solo debut. Playing the Dobro with rare musicianship and taking a break from being knee high in 2inch tape from his first album. The Podcast scene have been gobbling up his tales of being beaten up for a while now, and now it is time to share them with the rest of us.
