The Arkansas Ramblers

Performing live on The Tall Ship - FREE - no need to pre-book.

The ten piece Arkansas Ramblers play American-style old-time string band music. The regular old-time instruments of banjo, guitar, fiddle, harmonica, mandolin and double bass are augmented by drums, flute, whistle and melodeon with an occasional burst of washboard and bones. Two vocalists provide the songs, mostly from the early 20th century or US Civil War period.

With a combined age of 660 and a variety of musical backgrounds – ceilidh, blues, classical, heavy rock, country and Cajun - their varied repertoire, sartorial elegance and infectious enthusiasm have wowed audiences at the The Tall Ship, the Clydebuilt Festival, Largs Viking Festival, the Glad Cafe and the Celtic Connections’ Danny Kyle Open Stage.
