Skinny Lister are Daniel Heptinstall, Lorna Thomas, Maxwell Thomas, Sam Brace and Dan Gray who came together in the summer of 2009. United by their love of folk, jigs and the outdoors, the band have been riotously swinging the festival scene since day one, notching up an impressive 30 festivals last year.
The band soon came to the attention of festival impresario and DJ Rob Da Bank, who welcomed Skinny to his Sunday Best Recordings label. It’s on this label that Skinny Lister are releasing their barnstorming debut album Forge & Flagon on Monday 11 June.
Their live shows often feature a bric-a-brac merchandise stall, where you can treat yourself to old pocket watches, pub mirrors, tankards and a spectacular anchor or two, making a series of gigs at vintage stores a perfect fit for the band.
