Snake news: coming out of hibernation…

Hello SnakefansSs
A quick note to let y’all know what we’ve been up to of late and a few dates we have coming up.
As well as embedding our new Snake No.4 Gerry on double bass, over the last few weeks we snakes have been busy beavering away in Gerry’s mancave working on our next album.

As you can see from the pics, we are recording straight to analogue/reel to reel for a bit of vintage (luddite?) warmth and so far it is sounding delicious. We’re taking our time to get it right and we ‘re looking forward to sharing it with you soon.
In the meantime, you’ll be able to hear the new material, along with old favourites at one of our upcoming live shows in the next couple of months.


  • Friday 13th: The Fountain, Bridgwater.
  • Saturday 14th: Pilton Party (Auditions), Pilton.


  • Saturday 12th: Street Inn, Street.
  • Saturday 19th: “Africa Somerset” Event, Stoke St Gregory
  • Saturday 26th: The Barton Inn, Barton St David


  • Saturday 2nd: The Griffin, Frome
  • Saturday 9th: The Fountain, Bridgwater

There’ll be plenty more to be added to the list including some festivals, so keep an eye out for further dates…. there are exciting plans in the pipeline…




A Message to You, Rudolph!

It’s that time of year again!
Enjoy and share the love. Merry XmasSs from The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake

The Railway Inn Sunday Sessions

We’re very pleased to be playing The Final Sunday Session of the year at The Railway Inn this coming weekend.

Join us, The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake, with David 9 Lunas and Tolly Snell as we celebrate a fine year of Sunday sessions.

It’s Bank Holiday Sunday, so that’s means it’s your national duty by Royal proclamation to “lead in extending British holidays over a longer summer period” and spend an extra afternoon in a beer garden daytime-drinking in what is guaranteed to be sunny British weather.

As well as live music, good beer and good company there will also be an all you can eat BBQ for £8! Sounds perfect.

See you down the front!

Get there early. Bring you drinking dollars ad your dancing shoes!

Senseless Things tribute album – now out!

We are very proud to feature a track on the new Senseless Things Tribute album “Punk, Not Fraggle”.

The album features 15 tracks by 15 bands all covering songs by 90s indie punk pop kids The Senseless Things and is a fundraiser for The Teenage Cancer Trust. We’ve heard it and it’s a corker – every track is a belter (working from great source material of course!)

Our contribution is this version of “Fishing at Tescos”.

The album is only £5 and available here – buy it!

BBC Somerset 95.5FM / 1566AM

To get you set up for the long weekend The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake will be playing live and having a bit of a chat on BBC Somerset tomorrow morning! You can listen to our new four-piece sound on 95.5FM  1566AM, DAB or online. We’re due on from 11am.


New gigs, new songs, new snake!

Greetings! As The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake slide out of hibernation we have some exciting news to share.

New Snake – When 3 become 4!

Firstly, we’d like to welcome our new double bassist, Gerry to the fold. Gerry has stacks of experience and a beautiful instrument (ahem) and has made himself very much at home among us, adding some much needed low-frequency muscle to our sound. It’s sounding great in rehearsals and we can’t wait to bring our ‘awesome foursome’ to the live shows.

New Shows

Over the coming months we’ll be returning to many of our favourite venues and festivals as well as new destinations. Check out the listings on the side bar. And there are plenty more in the pipeline so keep checking back. First up is April 7th in Bristol at the lovely Kingsdown Winevaults.

New songs

In between getting Gerry up to speed on our existing material we’ve also been adding some new songs which we’re looking forward to sharing with you all and there are plenty more in progress…

New found superstardom!

Er, OK, not quite. But in recent months we’ve made our way to the top spot of the local folk charts on Reverbnation and No. 42 nationally!
We’re not really quite sure how this has happened, or if we really deserve it, but hey, we’re gonna run with it. And OK, granted, the Bath Folk charts maybe quite niche, but it’s a start. So come check out our reverbnation profile, listen to some songs, watch some videos. Who knows where it could end?
