Oysterband

Friday 8 November 2024

St Petroc's, Bodmin, Cornwall

Legends on their last ever tour: from their earliest days as a noisy, politicised ceilidh band in the late Seventies, Oysterband have never stopped evolving or providing soundtrack to the changing times. Initially meeting at Canterbury in Kent, at a time when pubs were alive with folk clubs and music sessions, the Oyster Ceilidh Band (as they were known then), were a band on a simple mission to get dancefloors bouncing. But with a chemistry between its members and music that made a profound connection with its audiences, greater things soon beckoned as the times became more complicated.

£27.00 general admission

St Petroc's Sessions, Bodmin

In December, The Unthanks will play in Cornwall’s largest church, part of the tour for In Winter - a double-album, gatefold, dream-like winter fantasia, embracing both the dark and the light in the most ritualistic of seasons.

Echoes of winter tunes known throughout the western world, mix with the traditional and the newly written, all passed with great care and love through The Unthanks filter.
