Ceilidh band, roots-rock pioneers and nowadays international folk-rock legends, Oysterband return to help celebrate the 90th birthday of the home of British folk music.
Theirs has been a unique and fiercely independent career. Oysterband still play with that spirit of the punk ceilidh band that roared through people’s lives all those years ago. But the growing depth and sensitivity of their songwriting, coupled with the strength of John Jones’ voice and their remarkable musicianship, have lifted their music into a richer, more acoustic era.
"It’s a chance to unearth some of the gems that took us into the magical world of traditional music in those early days and interweave them with songs of our own that they inspired.” – John Jones
