Feast of Fiddles in Concert

Feast of Fiddles in Concert


Feast of a Fiddles in a musical extravaganza covering almost every genre and involving quite a few fiddles. It's not just folk, it's not just fiddles, it's entertainment! Little did the band think it would be setting off on its 25th annual spring tour in 2018 but hat started as an idea in a folk club has become a national folk-rock institution.

Feast of Fiddles has been variously likened to a group of geography teachers or Bellowhead with bus passes. However, the band of friends that puts on a show of huge dynamic range performed with a passion, joy and a liberal dose of fun does not seem to be slowing down at all.

There is a front line of a minimum of six fiddles that always includes Peter Knight (Steeleye Span), Christ Leslie (Fairport Convention), Brian McNeil (Battlefield Band), Ian Cutler (Bully Wee Band), Tom Leary (Lindisfarne) and Garry Blakeley (Band of Two).

Then there are five or six in the back-line of rock guitars, keyboards, Saxophone and accordion, all held together by legendary Fairport Convention drummer and now LA resident Dave Mattacks. Twenty five years and still going strong and every friend and guest dragged along becomes an immediate convert.

If you love live music, come to the feast. You won't be disappointed!

(This event will take place in the Eastbourne College Theatre).
