Music reviewer Nick Roseblade said: “Ella and the Blisters exploded onto the music scene last year with two original and enjoyable singles. These singles and a slew of incendiary live performances have helped to make them one of the most exciting and engaging bands playing at the moment.”

The band have played many venues in west London during their career, such as the Troubadour (Earl's Court), The Draper's Arms (Ealing) and The Hanwell Hootie, which they are returning to this Saturday (March 28).

Ella and the Blisters' lead singer and ukuleleist Gabriella Romano said: “We're 'London's ideal roots stew with a twist'.

“Our influences are country, gypsy, bluegrass and folk.

“People I love include Dolly Parton, Etta James, Alison Krauss, Pokey LeFarge and The South City Three, and Sallie For and The Sound Outside.”

Upcoming shows in west London:

  • Saturday March 28, 6.15pm: The Hanwell Hootie at The King’s Arms, 110 Uxbridge Rd, London, W7 3SU

  • Thursday May 14, 8pm: The Magic Garden, Battersea, 231 Battersea Park Road, London SW11 4LG
