The Singing Loins are one of the best Raw Folk Bands in the country and are from Kent. They sing songs about places in Kent, favouring the underdog. Some to the point, but with a sense of humour. They are from Wouldham and Gillingham.
Songs range from ascending Chatham Hill,The Topless Twins of Allhallows on Sea, The whores of Rochester, Old ferry Lane in Wouldham. And many more They have a massive following. they play at the Sweeps Festival and have been going since the 1990s. They are still playing today. Their sound is unique and not as other traditional folk bands are. Some of their work can be listened to on the website. http://www.singingloins.co.uk/
