Blackbeard’s Tea Party
The Water Rat’s, Kings Cross
18th June 7:30pm
“Voted best band at last year’s Cropredy Convention, and named THE band to see at Glastonbury by the Huffington Post, 2014 also saw Blackbeard’s Tea Party make a huge impact at festivals as diverse as Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Costa Del Folk in Spain, and the Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo. With this growing reputation, it’s hardly a surprise that they are one of the most in-demand bands on the folk circuit.
Now Blackbeard’s Tea Party bring their brand of gutsy folk rock to The Water Rats for the first time. Traditional songs and folk tunes are given a heavy rock edge with playful arrangements and driving dance rhythms. This is all mixed up in an engaging, high-octane stage show that frequently leaves audiences cheering for more.”
