The Dodge Brothers turn the clock back to 1950s
The Observer's chief film critic Mark Kermode proves that he has more than one string to his bow as he performs with Southampton-based British skiffle band The Dodge Brothers at the Acorn, Penzance, next Saturday.
Mark, who plays double-bass, is joined by Mike and Alex Hammond, and Aly Hirji on guitars, harmonica and various household appliances.
The Dodge Brothers released their third album The Sun Set CD in September, recorded at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee, home to the early recordings of Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis, pictured.
Expect a night of foot-stomping, hand-clapping, good-time music, from Americana, rockabilly, bluegrass, folk and country to blues in a quirky and charismatic venue that is perfect for stepping back into the 1950s. Mark, a regular visitor to Cornwall and a great supporter of the Plaza cinema in Truro, will also be making an appearance at The Cornwall Film Festival in Newquay on the afternoon of the 9th, when The Dodge Brothers will be accompanying a selection of scenes from silent films of the 1920s.
