Folk Rock Festival Fundraiser

Blackbeard's Tea Party, who were named THE band to see at Glastonbury by the Huffington Post and voted best band at last year’s Cropredy Convention, are bringing their brand of gutsy folk rock to New Mills for the first time when they perform on Friday 6th May to help raise funds for New Mills Community Festival.

Tickets are available from Priscilla's Hallmark Cards, Market Street, New Mills or http:// for the event that starts at 7.30pm at New Mills Town Hall.  

The band has made an impact at festivals as diverse as Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Costa Del Folk in Spain, and the Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo. 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 folk 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.
