OYSTERBAND!

Yes, the lads are back to play a very, very special event just for us squeezed in between their performances
at the Edmonton Folk Festival and the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival.

Hailed as one of the best live concert acts ever, UK's Oysterband will be performing at Blind Rooster Berry Farm
at 3660 Anderson Rd, Kelowna. Doors at 7:00 pm, music at 7:30 on Wednesday, August 12, 2015.

Currently Oysterband consists of founder members John Jones (vocal, melodeon), Alan Prosser (guitars, vocal), and Ian Telfer (violin, keyboard, vocal) with Dil Davies (drums), Al Scott (bass guitar, mandolin, vocal), and Adrian Oxaal (cello, guitar, vocal).

Today, after recording over 30 albums, they have collaborated with the likes of Ewan MacColl, Peggy Seeger, Michelle Shocked, Spirit of the West, The Strawbs, and Kate Rusby. Also their song “When I’m Up” was a big hit for Canada’s own Great Big Sea.

Oysterband make a modern, folk-based British music, acoustic at heart, sometimes intense, sometimes rocking. Since 1978 they've toured in 35 countries - festivals, concerts, bars, rallies, jails. Their sound is “Music for the head, the heart & the trousers. And still improving in the bottle.” as cited on their website www.oysterband.co.uk

This last minute booking is a very rare opportunity to see this group in such an intimate setting. The Blind Rooster Berry Farm will provide a beautiful backdrop for this outdoor event. Tickets are very limited so please get yours early.
