Scott Butler – Folk on the Pier
‘The festival faithful immediately warmed to Palmerston who opened the Friday night for seasoned artists Richard Digance and Home Service. Back stage they were a joy to deal with and efficient and professional in their approach to the Cromer’s usual tight turn round technically for the evening concerts’
Nick Curtis – New Forest Folk Festival
“We saw Palmerston at Folk on the pier. They are fine musicians playing great songs with excellent stage presence. We had to book them for the 2019 New Forest Folk Festival”
Albert Lee – (Country Guitar Legend)
“The gentlemen of Palmerston guarantee you an exciting evening of music which involves styles past and good times galore. But the music is fresh, invigorating, all theirs and a must see-and-hear.”

I am very lucky to have run a very successful live music venue for 16 years now and therefore have had the chance to work with hundreds of amazing artists. It is in the bands category that I have found myself hardest to please as so often I find that a band is made up of maybe one or two talented and enthusiastic people and the others just do their job. Often well it’s fair to say, and then there are a few bands that just hit it on the nail. Great songs, fabulous stage presence and fine musicianship throughout the whole band. PALMERSTON are one such band for sure, add to that the fact they all sing as well, and in so many ways you have the perfect line up to truly entertain, and that’s what you want from a live act. So if you are a music promoter thinking of booking these guys, its simple book them. Oh, and don’t be put off by the large number of instruments they play, as my sound-man tells me there a breeze to work with and easy to set up, so it’s simple, this band is one to book they just tick every box. Well for me they do even after all these years of working with acts, I for one will keep booking them and so should you.
Marion Fleetwood – Stratford River Festival Ents Director
Palmerston were a fabulous addition to the line-up for Stratford River Festival 2018 – great vibe, great musicians and great music. Can’t recommend them enough for other festivals – they promised all the above and delivered in spades.
Also consummate professionals and a joy to work with.
