“This is a band at one with itself, full of expert musicians enjoying themselves, all given their expressive head but all remaining tight as a unit”


“There is the feel of Jethro Tull here but also, on Company Of   One, shades of Artic Monkeys brilliant spin-off group The Last Shadow Puppets” Sunday Express

We will be playing new songs exclusively from our forthcoming release as well as the favourites.

Described by one record reviewer as ‘Folk’ because they use acoustic guitars and ‘Rock’ because they use electric guitars, Fate the Juggler are happy to occupy the space between… and to stretch those boundaries to follow their muse. 

"Their recent uplifting performance at South Downs Folk Festival, where they set a high bar for the following Oysterband, was a wonderful set where these new songs sat comfortably alongside Juggler fan favourites. The die-hards left happy and many a new fan was made. " Simon Goodale

"Foist this hidden gem of Kent upon the world" Simon Goodale - Folking.com
