After three decades in the business, the once bad boys of folk have matured into the rightful custodians and godfathers of the modern folk, a role which has seen them lose none of the revolutionary fervour and punk ethos that drove Oysterband from local ceilidh to the world stage and on to the forefront of an entire musical movement.
An acoustic journey through classic and rare gems from the Oysterband songbook presented in the inimitable, upfront Oyster style – energetic and melodic songs sparked by clever and insightful lyrics.
“..great tunes, superb voices, clever lyrics and a big dollop of the stuff that turns a band into a Great British Institution.
