Mark Radcliffe's Galleon Blast

Mark Radcliffe's Galleon Blast

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 wherever folk will have them.

With a selection of rum-soaked songs and shanties, the Blasters whip up a squally strumming storm to get all and sundry friggin' in the riggin'.

With traditional tunes and many a seafaring classic together with original material from their new album A BAND ON SHIP  you can be sure that these diddly diddly deck-hands will get feet tapping from the poop to the crow's nest. Galleon Blast feature banjos, whistles, accordions and fiddles from members of The Family Mahone, Full House and Mark Radcliffe and Foes, including the pirate dj himself Mr.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.


With support from  Chris Tavener

Chris TavenerChris Tavener is the witty, satirical songwriter saying things that everybody thinks, but nobody says.

Rock ‘n’ roll infused with comedy. Folk dipped in satire. It’s like Peep Show set to music! If Jimmy Carr played guitar... he would be Chris Tavener.
