The Driftwood Cowboys

Three parts Orkney and one part Nashville... The Driftwood Cowboys sound like no other band in the isles today.

Their individual histories weave in and out of notable Orcadian groups, from the Smoking Stone Band to The Tribe, and the Lone Star Swing Band. Their press cuttings and passport stamps attest to storming appearances in venues from Austin and Chicago, to Torshavn and Pierowall. Their songs and tunes portray a landscape of Shopping Week Queens, blackenings and barbed wire beer...local stories sung to the universal tune of the blues, old time country, and folk.
