Hatful of Rain are a trio, based in East Sussex, they have been playing together since 2010. Their music is a blend of British Folk & Americana styles, centred round songs with timeless themes of love and loss, domestic hardships, migration, identity, celebration & grief.

Originally a four piece, 2019 brings a period of change – following the retirement of fiddle player James Shenton. Concentrating on arrangements and nuances of their song writing, the new format has been met with warm response.
