The Rigmarollers

The Rigmarollers pack out exhilarating shows with their unique take on the blues.

A trio with a massive sound, they put vocals, harmonica, guitar and sousaphone over an irresistible backbeat.

Harmonica virtuoso Ed Hopwood learnt his craft in acclaimed UK blues bands. Guitarist Julian Marshall has travelled across America and Europe to play with blues and trad musicians. Ewan Penkey is rightly lauded and in demand for his mastery of the sousaphone and bass. 

Together they blast out an original musical mix, bringing the party everywhere they play.

 “Best gig of the festival.
You totally nailed it.”
