Band of folk-rockers will put on a joyful show

Where: Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury

When: Wednesday, March 27, 7.30pm

The Feast of Fiddles bandwaggon trundles merrily on in its silver jubilee year.

Born in Nettlebed, Oxfordshire, on Valentine's Day 1994 as a one-off special concert, Feast of Fiddles has done 25 spring tours, 24 festivals and has seven CDs to its name. Not bad for a bunch of old folk-rockers!

This is a band of friends that puts on a show of huge dynamic range performed with passion, joy and a liberal dose of fun.

Fiddlers Peter Knight (Gigspanner, Steeleye Span), Chris Leslie (Fairport Convention), Brian McNeill (Battlefield Band), Ian Cutler (Bully Wee), Tom Leary (Lindisfarne) and Garry Blakeley (Band of Two) add the large range of fiddle playing styles to the rock back-line of guitars, keyboards, sax and accordion - all held together by legendary drummer Dave Mattacks.

A live music entertainment like no other on the circuit which is guaranteed to be enjoyed by even the most doubting of friends dragged along!

See the Roses website for ticket details.
