This is the Pitmatics’ Electronic Press Kit


The Pitmatics is an exciting new folk band with a focus on storytelling. Original and cover songs tell powerful tales with great arrangements, superb musicianship and stunning harmonies.


“Absolutely spectacular – we have a bit of treasure in here tonight” – Sue Marchant, BBC Radio Cambridgeshire. 09/09/2018.

“..incredibly talented musicians playing both mining songs of old and their own original arrangements. A great foot tapping way to start the Saturday night line up!” Tessa O’Neill, Organiser, Dinglefest.


The band has collaborated with great artists like Julie Felix (The Frost Report, Once More with Felix) and Garry Blakeley (Feast of Fiddles, Mariners).
