Multi-instrumentalist Richard Hughes draws on his sense of the theatrical, whether playing squeezebox, tuba or even the scissors. Whatever he plays, his music has echoes of ancient traditions gone slightly off the rails, and the unlikely instrumental combination of sousaphone, accordion and percussion that makes up the Velvet Chestnuts makes them a lost circus band huddled around a Balkan campfire and cheering themselves (and us) up with their acoustic tunes.
