Folk band Whalebone return to Feckenham
1:50pm Monday 14th April 2014 in News
RETURNING to Feckenham this weekend by popular demand is the rootsy, rocky, folky band Whalebone.
Steve, Char and Sarah have played at Feckenham Village Hall before on each occasion they delighted large audiences with their unique and energetic acoustic line up.
The band are led by guitarist Steve Downs who has played with such diverse artists as Roy Wood and Eartha Kitt as well as being a regular on stage musician with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Charlotte Watson cut her musical teeth in Robert Plant’s band and Sarah Ibberson is a classically trained violinist who came to Whalebone via a skirmish with some morris dancers.
The band's fourth album Runes has just been issued and is even tipped for a Grammy award.
For the show they will be joined by American singer/songwriter Kelley McRae, one of the USA’s hardest working musicians.
This is one of 200 shows scheduled for 2014 and one of only three in the UK - Nottingham, London and Feckenham.
A spokesman said: "A superb Easter bonbon - no chocolate on offer but our licensed bar will surely compensate. Go on - treat yourself."
The show is on this Saturday, April 19 at 7.30pm
Tickets cost £10 are on sale at the Village Shop and The Rose and Crown in Feckenham.
