An Americana, blues and country duo formed around vocalist Jen Acons and guitarist Chris Ridsdale, Soapbox Preacher have been performing in acoustic clubs and festivals across the Midlands for the last 10 years. 

Based in Matlock/Chesterfield, Jen was (and sometimes still is) vocalist with blues band The King Bee’s and Chris was a founder member of the Americana band Dusty Knees. Together they created Soapbox Preacher and, with an emphasis on harmonies and fresh arrangements, play a mixture of their own original songs alongside covers by artists such as Tom Waits, The Civil Wars, and Tom Petty.
