Kit Hawes & Aaron Catlow

Growing up in Belfast in the 70’s, the FOS Brothers fuse an eclectic mix of their own original songs with traditional Irish sensibilities flavoured liberally with Floydian/Genesis/Horslipian spices.

Their mix of drums, percussion Loops and samples, soaring guitars and bass delight Festival and Venue audiences and that’s before they start singing!

New CD, 'Clear Again' was mastered by Simon Heyworth of Mike Oldfield’s famed production, and is available now for purchase from their website.

Amazing Ragtime Blues performers


create an exceptionally full and hard driving rhythmic sound

which soon has audiences feet tapping.

Their repertoire is 20s and 30s Blues based, but extremely varied, encompassing

Mississippi Blues, East Coast Ragtime sounds, early White Country tunes, Original Compositions,

and many other regional styles of the 20s and 30s period.

Kit Hawes and Aaron Catlow

play folk music from Europe, America and beyond;

combining dazzling playing

with a fine sense of musicality and showmanship
