About Siobhan McCrudden:
Noted as ‘One to watch in 2016’ by NewSoundWales, Siobhan McCrudden’s voice has been described as 'fragile, pure and hugely distinctive'. Her early performances found her on the coffee house circuit of New York where the influence of country and folk embedded itself in her song-writing style, which reflects a vivid fascination with both folk/roots and the vast melodic landscapes of Americana.
A close-harmony, eclectic, semi-acoustic piano-led wonder, Mumbo-Jumbo brings together three top Midlands singer/songwriters to produce an ‘Eclectic Acoustic’ sound that is all their own.
Twice British Blues Awards nominees, Oliver, Phil & Chris play nine instruments and combine to produce strong harmonies, interweaving the songs with stories and a self-deprecating humour.
'The musicianship is unsurpassable, and the songwriting is excellent.'
Blues in Britain magazine
'Combine excellent musicianship with lively banter and a connection with their audience that is second to none'
Folk Monthly magazine
