Trenchfoot have established an enviable reputation as one of the fastest emerging folk rock acts in Wales finishing a busy year by playing at Brecon Cathedral Armistice Evening in November 2016.
Steeped in stories real and imagined, it’s not a sad sound though, with emotionally, powerful lyrics, foot-tapping rhythms, driving bass lines, rousing sing-a-long choruses and an Americana
folk style with their vocals and harmonies.
The band performs original, contemporary songs, have four versatile lead vocalists in Lorraine King, Phil Jenkins, Terry Thomas and Jeff Singer: turning their hands to a multitude of instruments; ukulele, banjoitar, accordion, mandolin, acoustic guitar, mandocello and harmonica. Seimon Pugh Jones and Andy Edwards lay the foundation of the performance on drums and bass.
Prostrate’ a powerful song...Lorraine’s
voice suits it perfectly

There’s something about their songs that impress itself upon us, tapping into nuances of emotion we didn’t know we had, and finding memories that don’t belong to us,
Western Mail, Dec 2014
They sing poignant, moving, melodic tales.many are sad, some are funny…heavy on hiraeth. All songs are moving and are infused with a passion and spirit…ultimate messages are of survival in the face of awful adversity and hope for the future…a truly unique band of brothers (and one sister)
BB Skone Pembrokeshire Life, CD Review
A Welsh folk-rock band that tells tales, sings songs, makes you laugh, makes you cry, but above all, entertains you!’ ‘Not only a musical feast, it was a tonic for the soul. I stepped out with my
heart a little lighter and my head filled with song.
