Four Hands and a Horn!

Songs and Laughter from three singer-songwriters


From experienced Rural Tourers Mumbo-Jumbo features a new line up, new instrumentation and new songs. Now with two fabulous piano players Richard Hughes and Phil Bond and led by Oliver Carpenter this eclectic singer/songwriting trio sit somewhere in the folk, blues, and acoustic areas of music and bring excellent rapport with village audiences. Twice nominated in the British Blues Awards and commissioned to write the official song for VE Day 75, the trio write about everything from old soldiers to 19th Century cartoon characters, love, light and wealth of even more unusual subjects.


‘Very impressive. The band and the songs are brilliant, they make you laugh, tap your feet and also make you think – a winning combination, and a great night out!’

Live & Local Promoter, Great Carlton, Lincolnshire


“Your show was a highlight of the year, as was meeting you all. Fantastic music”                 Live Borders Promoter, Scotland


“Thank you for a very successful event on Thursday evening. I have never received such positive feedback from so many people – appreciation as to how good you were.”

Live & Local Promoter, Rolleston Village Hall, Nottinghamshire


“Brilliant band – the guys are clearly a close group of friends who are very comfortable playing together, so they blend seamlessly, both musically and with their presentation. Hosting wise – they win our ‘most efficient band’ for being prompt, thoughtful, well organised and doing set-up/break down calmly in record time. I would recommend them.” Air in G Promoter, Gloucestershire

“You did a grand job in playing and engaging the audience.”                                                   Night Out Wales Promoter

“Political? Yes! Social Commentary? Yes! Funny? Yes! Fab musicians? Yes! The audience loved their music.”
