Blowzabella At Oxfolk, Kennington Village Centre

November 27 @ 4:00 pm GMT

£16

Come and have a dance to Blowzabella: a genuinely unique band that makes an inimitable, driving, drone-based wall-of-sound – played with a fabulous sense of melody, rhythmic expertise and sheer feeling. They compose their own music which is influenced by English and European traditional folk music and song. Many of their tunes are “standards” in the modern British/European folk repertoire and are played by people all over the world. Bands across Europe and beyond who experiment with folk music often cite Blowzabella as a major influence. Much loved and respected, there is no one else quite like them.

The band is: Andy Cutting – diatonic button accordion; Jo Freya – vocals, saxophone, clarinet; Paul James – vocals, bagpipes, saxophones; David Shepherd – violin; Barn Stradling – bass guitar; Jon Swayne – bagpipes, saxophone.

The gig is in the late afternoon/early evening so people who travel to see the band can get home at a reasonable time! Doors open at 4pm. Band will be on stage at 4.30pm and it ends at 7pm. Bar available.
