THE RATTY LITTLE FINGERS The Ratty Little Fingers create music with anything they can get their grubby little mitts on, according to their website www.therattylittlefingers.com Trying to bring smiles to all they meet, with bubbles, laughs, fog and tears, The Rats will take you on an emotional journey with their theatrical folk. The Ratty Little Fingers feature Katy ‘KingRAt’ McGrath on Vocals, Flute, Guitar, Ukulele and Kazoo, Christian ‘Curly Sandrat’ Sandford on Upright Bass, Melodica, Drums and Backing Vocals and Austin ‘Texas Loverat’ Ray on Banjo, Violin, Accordion and Glockenspiel. The Rats are currently writing and recording songs for an upcoming CD. RAE CLARK Rae describes himself on his myspace page as a man, a guitar, some singing, some merriment, some blues. Friday 11th March at the View Two is a brilliant opportunity to see him in action.
