Oysterband 40th Celebration Special.Classic songs from every era of a long and mighty career.
Oysterband, the multi-award-winning outfit that brought passion, power and not a little poetry to folk and roots music, enter their 40th year as vital and creative as ever. They boast some of the finest songs in the modern folk canon to their name, including 'Put Out The Lights', 'When I’m Up (I Can’t Get Down)', 'Blood Wedding' and 'Everywhere I Go'. These, and many others from their vast back catalogue, will be featured as they celebrate four decades of a unique and fiercely independent career.
Oysterband still play with that spirit of the punk ceilidh band that roared through people’s lives all those years ago. But the growing depth and sensitivity of their songwriting, coupled with the strength of John Jones’ voice and their remarkable musicianship, have lifted their music into a richer, more acoustic era.
