REVIEW FROM THE BBMA MAGAZINE
North Drive - They're good. Their distinctiveness comes in 2 forms: original strong songs made stronger by rare, rich harmonies. And the playing's good too. All sing, and many of the 13 songs are splashed with luxurious harmonies - with good choices of voicings. It would be just if this CD led to some good gigs where they would be heard and appreciated by good sized crowds. You heard it here first!

North Drive is a Band from Winchester (Hampshire) playing Bluegrass - influenced by Roots and Folk Music. Two of its members are writing original material, and this material is mixed with covers to provide an interesting and different approach. Arrangements are mostly original, and with the vocal harmonies provide an exciting sound; All four band members sing.
Festivals to date include DIDMARTON, OREWELL, CORNWALL, NETLEY MARSH, WINCHESTER MAYFEST, ALESFORD, AND ROMSEY - BEGGARS FAIR. Other venues include our local Pubs and Folk Clubs. Tracks from the new CD are already being played on internet radio.
BBMA Magazine - Submitted by Norman Jones relating to gig at the Ringwood Folk Club. "North Drive all sang harmonies as if they were born to it. It was the kind of sound you hear on the radio going over the Smokey Mountains on Highway 40 out of North Carolina down into Tennessee. Wonderful stuff."
From Steve Kaufman's Winchester Gig.
"North Drive opened up the night and they kick butt. Great hard driving sound and smooth vocals." Steve Kaufman (USA)
