Songwriter and prolific composer Steve Grocott founded the band primarily as a place to create and hone new music. The Drones are particularly interested in unusual musical textures and time signatures which explains their preference for bizarre instrumentation. They work extensively in schools, museums and arts centres, running creative music workshops and instrument making sessions. Their fourth album, Drones 4, was released in 2011 featuring fiddle player Elliet Mackrell and one of my absolute favourite folk musicians, Rory McLeod.
