The Rigmarollers

"Best gig of the festival.
You totally nailed it.

The Rigmarollers pack out exhilarating shows with their unique take on the blues, having made the leap to festival headliners in the last year.


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


New single The Duke of Rent, out in April, precedes the arrival of the album 21st Century Speakeasy Music in June.


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.


The Rigmarollers regularly sell out gigs across London and the UK. They have played Sidmouth Jazz & Blues, Fire in the Mountain, The Idler, Bimble Bandada, Purbeck Valley, Ealing Blues, Upton Blues, Leek Blues & Americana, among many festivals. 

Here's what people are saying about the band:

"Thanks for the BRILLIANT music. We REALLY needed to dance!"

"Such a great band. Thank you for making our night AMAZING!"

"The Rigmarollers were a joy"

"Band of the festival"

"The Rigmarollers are fantastic — best band I've seen in years"

"What IS this music? We LOVE it!"
