Yes, the lads
are back to play a very, very special event just for us squeezed

of the best live concert acts ever, UK's Oysterband will be performing

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
Im Up was a big hit for Canadas own Great Big
a modern, folk-based British music, acoustic at heart, sometimes
intense, sometimes rocking. Since 1978 they've toured in 35 countries

for the head, the heart & the trousers. And still improving
in the bottle. as cited on their website www.oysterband.co.uk
