Tin Giants at Royston Live, Hertfordshire
May 12 @ 7:00 pm BST£9
Tin Giants take a refreshing “in with the old, in with the new” approach to interpreting, writing, arranging and performing traditional, contemporary and original music inspired by European acoustic and folk traditions.
The band shares decades of skilled musicianship and award-winning song-writing, playing a dazzling array of instruments. The line-up brings together former members of folk rock band Shave the Monkey, which was an established name on the European folk scene for 20 years. They have since been making music in a multitude of projects including the late Judy Dyble’s Band of Perfect Strangers and the Boxwood Chessmen.
