Catch the oysters

Straight from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic to Broseley; this is a rare opportunity to catch the three original members of Oysterband as they perform songs and share their stories of life on the road.

As one of the UK’s leading folk bands, Oysterband have entertained audiences around the world for over 40 years and are well known in Shropshire as regular headliners at Shrewsbury Folk Festival.

Formed in the late 1970s as a ceilidh band, performing radical arrangements of traditional folk music before they began to write their own songs in the early 1980s, they’ve since toured in 35 countries, won five BBC Folk Awards and made 13 studio albums.

Catch them on Wednesday 8 April at the Birchmeadow Centre, Broseley. The doors open at 7.30pm, tickets are priced at £20 or £18 in advance. Call 07890 057832 or visit
