The Will Pound Band is the brain child of Harmonica wizard Will Pound. Recognised as one of the best harmonica players on the planet, Will has sort out some of the UK folk scenes leading instrumentalists to join him in creating a unique sound that draws on many aspects of traditional music from around the world. The WPB explore Irish, Scottish, English and Appalachian music during a typical set combining this with shades of the Blues, Bluegrass and Jazz to create a sound that is both steeped in tradition and progressive in its approach.
Joining Will is Henry Webster – Fiddle, John Parker – Double Bass and beat-boxing and Chris Sarjeant – Guitars and Vocals. All three musicians have made names for themselves on the UK folk scene in their own right, all have released albums and as one half of Nizlopi, John has even scored a number 1 with 2005’s ‘JCB Song’!
