Black Tar Roses
Tuesday Jul 27, 2021 - Monday Aug 30, 2021
Mon 30th: Foundry Court 1pm; Molesworth Arms 5pm
Black Tar Roses are a Dark Folk/ Americana band from Plymouth, playing original music with a rootsy feel and a gritty edge.
Their rootsy, folk sound is infused with the attitude of social distortion from Southern California, the vocals jumping with super intelligent lyrics.
Darren Long’s writes historical, storytelling songs, and years working at sea helps him bring sea shanty-esque themes into play.
They recorded their debut album ‘Rebels, Rogues & Outlaws’ in Plymouth and Los Angeles. A charity EP ‘Plymouth Gin’ was released in 2020 and a second studio album will be out next year.
“Feels like … a Cohen Brother’s soundtrack” (Sarah Gosling, BBC Introducing).
