Feast of Fiddles

Start Time: 7.30pm

The Apex, Bury St Edmunds

Feast of Fiddles was born in Nettlebed on Valentine’s Day 1994 as a one off special concert.

Since then the band has completed 26 spring tours, 25 festivals and has seven albums to its name. Not bad for a bunch of old folk-rockers!

This is a group of friends that puts on a show of huge dynamic range performed with passion, joy and a liberal dose of fun.

Fiddlers Peter Knight (Gigspanner, Steeleye Span), Chris Leslie (Fairport Convention), Brian McNeill (Battlefield Band), Ian Cutler (Bully Wee), Tom Leary (Lindisfarne) and Garry Blakeley (Band of Two) add the large range of fiddle playing styles to the back-line of guitars, keyboards, sax and accordion – all held together by legendary drummer Dave Mattacks.

The show features all the individuals in a wide range of ensemble pieces – instrumental and vocal: a live music entertainment like no other on the circuit, which is guaranteed to be enjoyed by even the most doubting of friends dragged along!

“Britain’s fiddling supergroup” – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

Tickets: £23. Available from the website above.
