Lunch Special are an international stringband based in London, playing a mix of bluegrass, old-time and gospel originals and treasures. Taking inspiration from their diverse backgrounds spanning Hong Kong, the U.S., Italy, Norway, Ireland and finally settling in London, the trio play off-kilter originals and buried classics with a soulful, raucous energy with their powerful vocal harmonies and tasteful playing.


Firmly on the ascent, Lunch Special were selected last year after being freshly formed, to play at the AMA UK Showcase, are playing at major UK festivals this summer and are headlining some of England’s best known bluegrass festivals. They have just released their first EP – Lunchtime Sessions #34, recorded and produced in the U.S. by Jimmy Pendergast; and they will soon be recording their debut album, which will be released early next year.
