Never miss another 'Blackbeard's Tea Party' show
Ceilidh: Blackbeard's Tea Party
"Oxfolk Ceilidhs runs friendly, relaxed and energetic dances. Bring your friends and family, organise a works night out or come by yourself - you'll always be welcome!
Blackbeard's Tea Party is a high-energy and slightly anarchic band and were a hit at Sidmouth Folk Week, Shrewsbury and Chippenham Folk Festivals. They play funky folk tunes, saucy songs and have an infectious stage energy. They create a sound that is equal parts tasty, dramatic and danceable. And after all, they arrrgh the premier pirate ceilidh band in the country!"
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Blackbeard's Tea Party combine fiddle, melodeon and voice with the interlocking grooves of two hand percussionists, a distorted electric guitar, and funk-inflected bass patterns. Though their music often takes traditional tunes and songs as the starting point, it's clear that Blackbeard's Tea Party is not for folk purists. Theirs is a gutsy take on folk which aims to renounce the trendy twee of bands like Mumford and Sons in favour of folk's darker and more primitive origins, all by way of classic rock, funk and dance music. The resulting arrangements are often quirky and boisterous. This playfulness - along with their anarchic and ebullient stage show - has won Blackbeard's Tea Party a small legion of fans.
