The Rubber Wellies 10 Year Celebration Tour

The Rubber Wellies 10 Year Celebration Tour

Travelling folk band The Rubber Wellies are playing 5 full band gigs in October to celebrate ten years on the road!

Oct 3 // The Cumberland Arms, Newcastle (7.30pm, £5/£7)
Oct 4 // The Glad Café, Glasgow (7.30pm, £8/£10)
Oct 5 // The Workman´s Club, Dublin (8pm, 10e/12e)
Oct 6 // Zigfrid von Underbelly, Hoxton Square, London (7.30pm, £10/£12)
Oct 7 // The Greystones, Sheffield (8pm, £8/£10)

Original, entertaining and thought provoking, the Rubber Wellies are a unique Basque, Irish and British based collective, a travelling folk outfit like few others. Having delighted audiences all over Europe and beyond with their hard working, fiercely independent act and their love of feel-good fun they celebrate ten years on the road together in full festival mode with a whistlestop tour of five cities and five nights only.

Drawing on curious everyday occurrences, folk narratives and global politics, the Rubber Wellies multi-lingual shows are a mix of musical story-telling and good-time sing-alongs that flip between poignant introspection and carefree raucousness. With a genre-bending mash-up of sea shanties, mexican rancheras, bossa nova, reggae, old time and swing, their performances are a joyful exercise in bridge building – a sonic/emotional conversation with plenty of opportunities for thoughtfulness and laughter. Make sure you don´t miss out!

Featuring: Harry Bird (Bilbao) on acoustic guitar & vocals; Christophe Capewell (Dublin) on fiddle, melodica, ukulele and piano; Kate Theodore (Southampton) on fiddle and vocals; Jamie Bird (Lincoln) on banjo, mandolin and vocals
