We don’t want to play the same covers that everyone else does, and we’ve set out to prove that totally diverse and high energy folk-rock is just what the great British public really wants to hear. And we’ve succeeded! We’ve already enjoyed 10 years of playing all over Sussex but want to spread the vibe even further. Ask for us at your local club/pub.



Formed way back in a time before Game of Thrones, and when the newest iPhone was a 3 GS, folk and rock loving musicians came together to blend the two genres into the upbeat entertainment phenomena that is Buckler's Reel, and which to this day continues to tour Sussex pubs and clubs (and anyone else who needs them). Festivals, weddings, birthdays all enjoyed and catered for. Nobody can predict which cover they'll hear next, but it's always going to be interesting and lively. 'Nobody can be told what Buckler's Reel are like, you have to see them for yourself' (Morpheus). Recently filmed by the BBC for The Great Staycation on The Mac's Farm. For those looking for a more acoustic experience, Buckler's Lite are Sue and Paul with their own quirky set, when space and volume is an issue.



This is the full-on 4 piece rockin' sensation when you want your evening hi-energy fast and loud.



When space is at a premium and a lighter sound is required, Sue and Paul will delight you with their own special quirky set and witty banter.
