Hatful of Rain are a Bluegrass/Old time influenced British folk/roots band based in East Sussex. Playing original material, Hatful of Rain strive to combine powerful song-writing with musical virtuosity whilst retaining a strong traditional feel. The Hatfuls make full use of the “single microphone” approach to performing which creates an engaging visual spectacle whilst underlining the warmth and communal style of the music played.
In January 2012, Hatful of Rain signed up with Union Music Store record company to release “Way Up On The Hill” as the first full length CD. The album was released on 30th May 2012 to rave reviews!
