Hold on to your tri-corn hats and be prepared to stamp your wooden legs Ė Blackbeardís Tea Party are in town. Sea-shanties will be given a bombastic rock edge, and folk instrumentals will become late-night floor-fillers when this raucous bunch of reprobates hit the stage. They have dirt under their fingernails and a twinkle in their eyes, and you can expect fantastic musicianship, playful choreography and an unstoppable urge to move your body.

Drums, electric guitars, fiddle, melodeon and 4-part vocal harmonies combine to create music that is drenched in tradition, but filtered through a kaleidoscope of modern rock and pop.

Established as the go-to band for late-night folkiní shenanigans, Blackbeardís Tea Party have played memorable sets at Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival, Fairportís Cropredy Convention, The Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo and many more.
