Never miss another 'Oysterband' show
Oysterband + Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar
Folk-rock luminaries The Oysterband announce an exclusive concert in Stroud as part of a limited number of winter dates at a selection of their favourite UK venues.
Winners of BBC Radio 2 2012 Folk Awards’ Best Album, Best Group and Best Traditional Track, The Oysterband are a supremely talented multi-instrumentalist outfit who have long since proven themselves one of the most accomplished in folk.
After two and a half years taken up with Ragged Kingdom, their hugely successful collaboration with June Tabor, Oysterband are set to bring a classic set laced with a taster of new material from a brand new studio album to be released in January 2014.
Originally emerging from a scene that gave way to other top artists such as Levellers, The Pogues, and The Waterboys, their 37-year career has seen them release a staggering 22 albums through their various line-ups and musical incarnations.
Acoustic at heart, The Oysterband are sometimes intense, sometimes rocking. Having toured in 35 countries and appeared at countless world-renowned venues and festivals, they never fail to stun listeners with their powerful, captivating live performances, consistently adding to their already extensive fan base.
The Subscription Rooms has been chosen by the band as somewhere that they feel their music most resonates and somewhere they feel their exclusive new material will be most appreciated, so don’t miss this rare opportunity to catch a truly special Oysterband show.
Renowned hard touring band with songs that make you want to dance, laugh, cry or even just jump for joy. It could be classed as folk music, it could be indie rock or maybe it's just good music.
