5593934Mark Radcliffe's Galleon Blast
DateFriday 5th January 2018
DescriptionTICKETS ON SALE 9AM 22ND SEPTEMBER. Ahoy! Mark Radcliffe's Galleon Blast returns to the Band on the Wall harbour once again - THE band on the rum. Press ganged into service by an unscrupulous gangmaster from the Spanish Main (well....Knutsford actually), the swarthy seadogs of Galleon Blast occasionally get shore leave to ply their raggle-taggle trade. With a selection of rum-soaked songs and shanties, the Blasters whip up a squally strumming storm with traditional tunes, original songs and many a seafaring classic from The Dubliners, The Waterboys, The Pogues, The Fisherman's Friends and Ewan MacColl. Galleon Blast feature banjos, whistles, accordions and fiddles from members of The Family Mahone, Full House, The Bad Shepherds, The Incredible String Band and Thea Gilmore, including the pirate DJ himself Mark Radcliffe - the Jack Sparrow of the Radio 2 Folk Show. Actually, make that the Jack Duckworth of the Radio 2 Folk Show. So, it's all aboard the good ship Blast for a full-on broadside of buccaneering beat! This is a seated show with limited standing.
