For the first time since 2019 Faversham’s critically acclaimed folk-rockers Green Diesel are coming home! Having released their fourth album After Comes The Dark in 2021, the psych-folk five piece will be playing a special concert in Faversham’s Alexander Centre on 11th June. Support will be the dark-folk stylings of London band Salt Moon.
Hailing from Faversham in Kent, folk-rock band Green Diesel first emerged in 2009 and take their inspiration from the depths of English folk lore and legend and the classic folk rock sound of their predecessors Fairport Convention and The Albion Band. Blending violin, mandolin, dulcimer and accordion with electric guitars and drums, Green Diesel’s sound is born from a love of traditional English music and a desire to bring it to a modern audience.
