THE HUNTERS STORY
The Hunters story began way back in 2005 when British producer and musician Brother John met singer and songwriter Sister Chain in Berlin. The duo started travelling Europe, bringing country to the city folk of London, Paris and Brussels, with heart melting duets by musical couples such as Johnny Cash & June Carter, Dolly Parton & Porter Wagoner, Roy Rogers & Dale Evans, George Jones & Tammy Wynette and many more.
Since then they have performed at numerous festivals and venues world wide and have been joined on stage and in the studio by superb musicians such as Gidi Lynn Farhi (Double Bass), Big Daddy Mugglestone (drums), and pedal steel wizard Johnny Colby, who are all featured on their albums, as well as guests such as violinist Thommy Kletch, Two Dollar Bash members Mat de Harp and Joe Armstrong, musician and song writer Kathy Freeman and many other great musical friends.
With time they started adding original songs to their extensive repertoire of classics and are currently working on a new album of home grown honkytonk songs.
In their live shows The Hunters present a varied program of country & western thrills: from the singing cowboys of the 30ies through the golden age of 50ies honkytonk and down to nudie suit era of the 70ies. It's a fresh blend of old time country with a shot of blues, a dash of rock n roll and a sprinkle of western swing all wrapped up in a vaudevillian presentation.
The Hunters current line-up features Joe Armstrong (bass guitar, left) and Sam Dale (mandolin and harmonica, right).
