About this event
Don't miss the exciting launch party for Hull's first Folk & Maritime Festival. This great event features non-stop entertainment from 6pm until late, with some of the region's best folk artists. You can expect a fun filled night with live music, bar and snack food for your enjoyment. Fruit is located near the waterfront in a former fruit warehouse. It forms part of Hull's emerging Arts Quarter.
Featuring Blackbeard's Tea Party, Kevin Dempsey & Rosie Carson (USA), Beggar's Bridge, Jody McKenna & Band, Monkey's Fist, OrGaNIKaRmoNic, Dave Greaves, David Ward Maclean...plus more!
Funky folk tunes, saucy songs and an infectious stage energy, Blackbeard's Tea Party mix fiddles & squeezeboxes, guitar noise & synth bass, and a feast of international hand percussion to bring you an unforgettable folk-rock extravaganza. Grounded in English traditions - but never afraid to explore more exotic musical avenues - they create a sound that is equal parts tasty, dramatic and danceable.
