The COALMINERS are dedicated to 'Swamp Soul'. This brilliant band bring the rhythm and soul of New Orleans funk alive, playing songs ranging from Professor Longhair to Allen Toussaint, Mardi Gras parade anthems to Fats Domino Rock & Roll and the swampy funk of The Meters and Dr John. They take their name form the Toussaint/Dorsey classic 'Working in A Coalmine'.
