The past few years have seen Blackbeard’s Tea Party play at festivals as diverse as Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival, Fairport’s Cropredy Convention, The Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo and many more. Their most recent album ‘Reprobates’ has been met with high praise in the folk press, earning a 5 star review in R2 Magazine whilst fRoots named it “convincing and essential”. With this growing reputation, it’s hardly a surprise that they are one of the most in-demand bands on the folk circuit.
Traditional songs and tunes are given a heavy rock edge with playful arrangements and driving dance rhythms. This is all mixed up in an engaging, high-octane stage show that frequently leaves audiences cheering for more.
