Keston Cobblers Club at The Deaf Institute

Tap along until your soles wear thin...

This Keston born folk band will have you tapping your feet all night. A band set for huge things and you culture lovers can see them before they make it big time at The Deaf Institute on Monday 10th Feb.

Winners of BBC6 Music Rebel Playlist, Keston Cobblers’ Club formed in 2009 with sibling duo Matthew and Julia Lowe, joining their old Keston school friends to make foot-stamping mod-folk music.

The band is based on the folklore of the old, penniless cobbler of Keston. His business was struggling and he would cheer himself up by throwing barn dances for the villagers. The rip-roaring dancing would wear out the soles ofthe villagers’ shoes, and so the cobbler was never short of work again! (See “Story” for the whole shebang!)

Let’s have a right good old knees up and turn The Deaf Institute into barn dance. Tap along until your soles wear thin!
