Hatful of Rain

Hatful of Rain

Hatful of Rain are a British contemporary folk group that combine powerful songwriting with musical flare, inspired by English, Celtic and American Roots styles. We use a single microphone approach to performing. This creates an intimate and engaging atmosphere characteristic of every Hatful show. We have released two albums Way Up On the Hill in 2012 and The Morning Key in 2014. EP, Climb the Air was released last year on our own Long Way Home Music label and third album Songs of the Lost and Found is due out in July 2018.
