The Oysterband at the Cheese & Grain

THE nation’s favourite folk rockers Oysterband, are roaring into Frome on Friday 28th February as part of a major tour to promote their brand new album ‘Diamonds On The Water’.

Most venues will cater for a seated audience but the Cheese & Grain think such a dynamic band is best appreciated on foot. So get your dancing shoes on and get ready to move!

Since 1978, the Oysterband have toured constantly, performing in 35 countries, appearing on countless TV shows, playing festivals, theatres, clubs, pubs, rallies and even jails! Along the way they’ve recorded 12 studio albums, a DVD and amassed five BBC Folk Awards.

Their last album was the hugely successful ‘Ragged Kingdom’ featuring June Tabor which was voted Best Album at the 2012 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, with the ‘Oysters’ also winning the coveted Best Band Award. ‘Ragged Kingdom’ was also MOJO’s Folk Album of the Year.

The current line up of John Jones, Alan Prosser, Ian Telfer, Dil Davies and Al Scott is touring extensively, bringing their unique brand of folk rock to their huge army of fans across the country – expect all the old favourites and a generous helping of great new songs.

“The energy is still there, along with the desire to startle and experiment but so is a new maturity and emotional depth and even greater variety!” – The Guardian.
