Having cut their teeth in various brass, jazz and indie bands, Ghost Town Showdown was formed when the trumpets, amps and drums were packed away and the acoustic stringed instruments were unleashed. Honing their sound by busking out on the London streets, the band has since gigged extensively throughout the UK. They have appeared at the Cambridge Folk Festival, performed at opening night celebrity galas, and can often be found gigging around London and the south east. They write and perform their own songs.
In true bluegrass style of keeping-it-in-the-family (in a purely legal sense), they are brothers Colin and Phil Attrill, and cousin Simon Roberts.
