Ay Ducane are a 5 piece Americana country rock band fronted by singer Galih Richardson and guitarist Francis Newington. I came across this band by chance at a Friday night at Jamboree where they played alongside Flying with Anna favourites Like Spinning. After the unfortunate drop out of Shura from the final night of my Summer Series last week I roped in Galih and Francis to play an acoustic set to fill in the slot.
They describe themselves as ‘Neil Young and Crazy Horse meet Captain Beefheart’, which actually makes loads of sense. It’s really cool anyway. The band only have one recorded song online, a live version of ‘Queen and The Sultan’. Go check this band out live if you’re in London. It’s quite a show.
