The Hot Tamales

The band is based around singer-songwriter-guitarist Stewart Carr ( Ex Reet Petite & Gone ) Stewart is recognised as one of the foremost ragtime and slide guitarists in the UK.

Lesley Carr provides the driving percussion on washboard, plays harmonica as well as vocals.

David Jordan - Formerly with Panhandle Conspiracy contributes double bass, vocals, guitar - , and sings and plays the guitar a bit too... and writes the occasional song.

Lesley rang me to enquire about perhaps coming to Miskin. Having told my normal paupers tale, she was still daft enough to send me a CD. Twenty seconds in I got that "magic tingle factor" and knew this band just had to be unleashed on Miskin.

They payed us a short visit during the last Winter Warmer in 2001. They couldnt make it last Easter, but they are back with us this year.

I promise you The Hot Tamales will be a highlight of the weekend. Oh, and don't go home without a copy of their new CD. Now go look at their site...full of piccys and sound samples.
