Plumhall – Thundercloud – Folk Roots Radio Interview

Plumhall are Michelle Plum and Nick Hall. They come from West Yorkshire in England and they’ve just released a great debut album of moody British Americana entitled “Thundercloud”.

Michelle is a former member of Chumbawamba, Waking the Witch and The Accidental Tourists. Nick has been a member of the Hall Brothers band nearly all his life. Together as Plumhall they have supported Miles Hunt and Erica Nockalls of The Wonderstuff, as well as State Of The Union, Andy White and Henry Priestman. They also recently performed with multi-instrumentalist, and former member of Bob Dylan’s tour band, Larry Campbell at the BBC Radio 2 award-winning folk club The Black Swan in York England. We caught up with them at home in Bradford. For more information visit: Music: Plumhall, “Let Me Sleep” and “Exit From The Light” from Thundercloud (2014, Proper Distribution).

  • Hi Jan

    Great to hear your interview with Michelle and Nick! They are special friends of mine who I have got to know through loving their music.

    Let us hope they can make it across to see you sometime and thanks for supporting their work!

  • Hey Grinty,

    Thanks for the message. I really enjoyed chatting with Michelle and Nick. We love the new Plumhall album “Thundercloud”. We’ll certainly keep our fingers crossed about a North American trip some time in the not to distant future.
