Blackbeard’s Tea Party
This will be the 10-year Anniversary Tour for a group that have over the last few years have played at festivals as diverse as Glastonbury, Cambridge, Fairport Convention’s Cropredy, Towersey, Shrewsbury and Sidmouth—even The Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo. Traditional songs and tunes are given a heavy rock edge with earth-shattering riffs, playful arrangements and driving dance rhythms. Outlandish outfits offer a spectacle for the eyes as well as the ears. Don’t be put off—their most recent EP release, ‘Leviathan’, deals seriously with the full horror of the 19th-century whaling industry (an industry still relevant today). But we promise you a lively and thoroughly enjoyable evening.
