Harmonious noises, borrowed and homespun

Just who are these Errant Thieves anyway?

Errant Thieves are four great pals, based around Penrith on the edge of the English Lake District...except for the one who lives on a boat...or in a mysterious, ancient tower sometimes (really!!!) They borrow from English, Celtic and American  musical traditions, root out obscure, down-home covers and give their unique treatment to one or two classics along the way, all mixed-in with some homespun songs of their own. They employ acoustic guitars, double bass, fiddle, mandolin, cuatro, ukes and all manner of things you hit or shake... like washboards and other stuff they don't always know the names of. Their sets are pretty diverse to say the least and feature generous helpings of nicely irreverent banter and laughter.
