Starting as a single banjo player and blossoming into a full on five piece bluecrass band, ..... Beginning in Brighton 2003 with Matt playing banjo and singing songs at open mike nights, only to be named "Chicken Shed Zeppelin" by his drunk friend after an audience member noted a similarity to Led Zeppelin in the noodling banjo between songs. After a time hooking up with old time fiddler Ade and playing duos, soon turning to a trio with the addition of a virtuoso Dave on git-tar the sound was almost complete...

Sadly Felix was unable to continue in 2012 and we now have the amazing Young Dave on double bass
