Feast of Fiddles embarks on its 24th annual spring tour in 2017 to coincide with the release of their seventh CD.
The band that has been variously likened to a “group of geography teachers” or “Bellowhead with bus passes!” doesn’t seem to be slowing down any. This band of musical friends puts on a show of huge dynamic range performed with passion, joy and a liberal dose of fun.
It all started at a folk club but has become a folk-rock institution with seven CDs to their name, several festival appearances and sell out shows up and down the UK.
Typically, fiddlers Peter Knight (Steeleye Span), Chris Leslie (Fairport Convention), Phil Beer (Show of Hands), 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.
This is a live music entertainment like no other, which is guaranteed to be enjoyed by even the most doubting of friends dragged along!
“Absolutely awesome!” Sue Marchant, BBC East
