Willow and Tool Band

Harmonies, harmonicas, anything stringed from uke to double bass, and some pretty nifty flute playing – these are the stock in trade of the popular Warwickshire foursome that’s been bringing generations and genres together since 2014. That’s when they launched Willow & Tool’s Music Parlour in downtown LI (Long Itchington!). An intimate venue, it’s been closed during the pandemic as 2-metre social distancing was nigh-on impossible but there are plans for a grand reopening this Autumn. Meanwhile, the line-up of Keith Eardley (harmonicas, uke, guitar, vocals), Laurel McIntosh (vocals, flute), Pete Willow (guitars, vocals), and John ‘Tool’ McIntosh (double bass) continues to treat audiences across the Midlands to their special brand of folk with more than a hint of American tradition.
