SHORT BIO

Dusk Brothers are a 'dark swamp blues' two-man-band from Bristol, UK.

Since 2015 brothers Graeme and Iain (E) Moncrieff have been building their trademark dark swamp blues music from the ground up. The distinctive Dusk Brothers sound derives from self-built instruments including box guitars (one of which also functions as a bass), percussive stomp-boxes with foot operated cymbals, various percussion instruments made from anything they can get their hands on (think old oil cans, pots and pans etc) and valve guitar amplifiers built from scratch in their own workshop to their own specifications. 

 

Combining these one-of-a-kind instruments with growling vocal harmonies and blues harp, the brothers are "cowboy-hatted shamans capable of eliciting a fierce and frenzied reaction in their listeners and are just as capable if not more so of replicating that magic live.”

(whatculture.com​)

The brothers' visceral live shows continue to astound audiences and accrue a dedicated fanbase at gigs and festivals across the UK, including at the acclaimed Buckle & Boots Country Festival, their headline show at the Dark Holler roots festival, and coveted main stage appearances at Tenby Blues Festival and Upton Blues Festival.

 

Dusk Brothers’ featured in the BBC One  documentary 'Cigar Box Blues - The Makers Of A Revolution', broadcast in 2019.
