Armed with debut album ‘Taking Chances’, Black Water County are bringing their tour to a town near you. The six-piece folk/punk band from Bournemouth have built a reputation as an exciting live act at festivals in recent years, and now the time has come for their own tour.

Singer Tim Harris met guitarist Brad Hutchings-Clarke through a shared love of all things folk and punk, and with the addition of Josh Hampson on drums, Gavin Coles on banjo and Shan Byrom on tin whistle, Black Water County was born, later completed with Russ Scagell on fiddle.

After five busy years of relentless performing and two EP releases, Black Water County have earned their place on the gig circuit, having played on the same bills as bands such as Less Than Jake, The Rumjacks and The Dreadnoughts. Multiple festivals slots at the likes of Boomtown Fair and Camp Bestival have moulded BWC into an intense, entertaining unit.
