About the event
Each of them with a deep passion for the traditions they grew up with (Irish Trad / Classical / Piping / North East Scottish Fiddle) as well as epic record collections covering everything from Country through to Industrial Jungle, Metal and Free Jazz.
All avid tune collectors, travellers and composers Oakes // Bews // Thorpe came together as a kind of music nerds club to try and amalgamate the tunes they love with the myriad of influences floating about in the bands collective psyche. Add to this an idiosyncratic, warm, witty (and at times slightly ranty) stage presence (Think Newsnight meets Monty Python) and you should have a vague idea of what to expect from a live show!
This tour is a special one for the band as it sees the preview of their new album ‘Half-Light’ (due out Spring 2023) alongside some brand new material written for this tour and who knows, maybe even a nod towards the season at some point..?!
