Henry's Funeral Shoe is a rock/blues band formed by two brothers in 2008 from South Wales, UK. The band was inspired and influenced by many of the albums that singer/guitarist Aled Clifford had looted from his father's vinyl collection when he was growing up. The Who, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Peter Green, Robert Johnson and The Beatles were favourites, and Aled quickly became a gifted guitar player, aided and taught by Ned Edwards, a long time collaborator of Van Morrison.
