Scotland's top Rock n' Roll Combo, Lord Rochester, will be having their debut Shetland Folk Festival appearance at the Festival Club this year.
In keeping with great Rock & Roll, Lord Rochester embrace the simplicity of sound and song using the maraca powered shuffle of artists such as Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Jimmy Reed and Lonnie Mack to create great stripped back driven rock and roll.
Scotland’s best sounding (and best looking) rock and roll show have toured Japan, played all over Europe and the UK and toured their native Scotland from the Borders to Aberdeenshire and from the Central Belt to the Highlands and not forgetting Shetland (Tim Mathew is now based up here and we're lucky to have him)
Be it high profile music festivals or small intimate shows, the effect is the same. Always entertaining and stylish, the trio (guitar, bass, spartan drum set and three voices) bewitch the audience, large or small.
Lord Rochester have also performed in session for the BBC, recorded at the famous Perrotti Studios in Gijon, Spain and provide the theme music for the ’Vic Galloway Show’ on BBC Radio Scotland.
Since they first got together in 2008 they have released five vinyl singles (four of which are EP’s) and one CD in the shops.
