Oysterband, the award-winning band who brought passion, power and not a little poetry to folk and roots music!

With a new album out early in 2022, Oysterband already have some of the finest songs in the folk canon to their name: Put Out The Lights; When I’m Up (I Can’t Get Down); Everywhere I Go; The Oxford Girl; Granite Years; Native Son….. They'll be drawing on these and many others from their vast back catalogue when they get back on stage in 2022 to add to more than 40 years of a unique and fiercely independent career.

Oysterband still play with that spirit of the punk ceilidh band that roared through people’s lives all those years ago. But the growing depth and sensitivity of their songwriting, coupled with the strength of John Jones’ voice and their remarkable musicianship, have lifted their music into a richer, more acoustic era.

Their occasional collaboration with folk diva June Tabor has produced two cult-classic award-winning albums, Freedom & Rain and Ragged Kingdom, and a partly live tour sampler Fire & Fleet. Ragged Kingdom and Oysters' hugely influential album Holy Bandits were voted nos. 4 and 5 among the Ten Best Albums of the last 30 years by the public in a poll by fRoots Magazine.

John Jones - voice, melodeon

Plus support from Fine Lines and The Gulls.
