The Wurzels Biography

The Wurzels (originally Adge Cutler and the Wurzels but renamed The Wurzels after Cutler's death) are a British Scrumpy and Western band.

This Somerset based band is best known by many people for its 1976 number one hit "The Combine Harvester", but has a history stretching over 40 years, and still performs to this day.

The name of the band was dreamt up by the band's founder Adge Cutler and was allegedly taken from the fodder beet Mangelwurzel. As can be determined from the subject matter of many of their songs, cider is very popular amongst Wurzels and their fans. Their particular "genre" of music has been named "Scrumpy And Western" after the group's first EP of the same name, issued early in 1967. (Scrumpy is a name given to traditional Somerset cider).
