Rod was asked to tell his musical story for the Hebden Bridge Folk Roots Festival blog recently. Read it all from humble teenage beginnings at http://hebdenfolkroots.tumblr.com/post/158842544028/interviewith309s. The 309s play the festival at The Trades Club on Sunday May 14th.
It's always great to see people out there in the audience taking photographs.
I know we tend to play in the dark, and in the presence of lots of alcohol, so not all your pics are going to be beautifully framed and totally in focus (or even your eyes sometimes!). However if you have got nice piccies from our gigs it would be great if you would share them with us. You can tag the 309s, or any of the band you are friends with on facebook. Or you can just email them to us. (Or if you are really old school, print them out and put them in an envelope :-)
We'd love to see some of the things we normally miss out on!
We have added a few new tunes to the Sounds page. It's a live recording from the Jive Dance gig we did at Square Chapel last year. It gives a little more of a flavour of what we play like live, for those of you who have not yet managed to get to a gig.

A new album is also on the cards, with all original material written largely by Roddy. (He's a clever lad!) It's probably going to be recorded in summer, but we'll keep you posted on here - so come back often!
All the band now can use the blog. Expect something daft coming soon!
We have nearly got this site sorted with the content and style. However feel free to contact us if you have any good pictures, videos or recording of the band we can use on here. Strangely, we are usually too busy playing to take photographs :-)
Also if you love/hate the new site, add a comment below - whatever you say we will still love you!
After years of looking at the same design and pictures, we have finally given in and gone for a re-design. Hopefully the new format will make it a lot easier to have a changing gallery and more up to date news, as it allows everyone in the band to have a say (and you ... in the comments below.) Please feel free to use the comments to communicate with us and let us know what we are getting right and wrong, where we should play, what to do next.
To see where we are, check the gigs page, and share the love with any other fans of 40s and 50s Americana.
