The Queens Hall Theatre and Windy Miller's Whirligig Presents… OYSTERBAND

 Oysterband makes modern, folk-based music, acoustic at heart, sometimes intense, sometimes rocking. Since their early days in the late 70s they have experimented with radical arrangements of traditional songs, determined that ‘traditional music should not be just a branch of the heritage industry.’ They've toured in 35 countries, performed at festivals, concerts, bars, rallies and even in jails!
Oysterband has won 5 BBC Folk Awards and made 13 studio albums.
After many incarnations, the current line-up is arguably the strongest ever with founder members John Jones (vocal, melodeon), Alan Prosser (guitars, vocal), and Ian Telfer (violin, keyboard, vocal) with Pete Flood (drums), Al Scott (bass guitar, mandolin, vocal), and Adrian Oxaal (cello, guitar, vocal).
