A True Feast of Fiddles at The Atkinson

A True Feast of Fiddles at The Atkinson

Some of the very best known and renowned musicians come together for a Feast of Fiddles a musical extravaganza at The Atkinson on Sunday 13 April.

Feast of Fiddles is a musical extravaganza covering almost every genre and involving quite a few fiddles! It’s not just folk, it’s not just fiddles it’s an entertainment.

2014 marks the 21st year this group of musical friends have taken to the road to entertain their growing legion of fans with a show of huge dynamic range, passionate and joyful playing and a liberal dose of fun.

Fiddlers Peter Knight (Steeleye Span), Chris Leslie (Fairport Convention), Phil Beer (Show of Hands), Brian McNeill (Battlefield Band), Ian Cutler (Bully Wee), Tom Leary (Zeus) and Garry Blakeley (Band of Two) add the large range of fiddle playing styles to the rock back-line of guitars, keyboards, sax and accordion – all held together by legendary drummer Dave Mattacks.

What started as a daft idea for a folk club night has grown into a folk-rock institution with six CDs to their name, several festival appearances and sell out shows up and down the UK.

21 Years and still going strong and every friend and guest dragged along an immediate convert. It’s a feast by nature and a feast by name which is guaranteed to be enjoyed! Be prepared for laughter, tears, dancing and an all round evening of fabulously entertaining live music.

If you love live music, come to the feast – you won’t be disappointed!
