Railroad Bill Street Skiffle

by Railroad Bill

Railroad Bill play street skiffle. Armed only with simple acoustic instruments, small busking amplifiers and enough energy to galvanise a graveyard, these tea-chest twanging tornados are equally at home at festivals, fetes or fundays, on street corners or in shopping centres. 

Their  foot-stomping performances  will always raise a smile, with their merry music-hall banter, gentle slapstick, daft dance steps and home made instrumentation.  Railroad Bill worship at the altar of skiffle and it’s their mission to inspire  us all to do the same. They play familiar songs to get the toes tapping and somehow manage  to create the warmth and intimacy of  a club-like atmosphere out on the windy streets.
