Hot Rats

The Hot Rats play Celtic, World and original music.

They are the brilliant fiddle player Ian Cutler, singer and guitarist Doug Hudson and bass player Scott Kirk.

Ian also plays with Feast of Fiddles and was the young fiddle player in The Wicker Man. Doug formed the band as part of his stand up show and is PA announcer for Gillingham F.C. They recruited Scott for his unique talent and showmanship on stage.

Their music is fast, dynamic and exciting and played with verve and enjoyment.
