Band on the Wall and CODA present a very special concert at The Coronation Hall , Ulverston, by one of the most loved electric folk bands reunited with long time collaborator, friend and folk giant June Tabor.

Twenty-one years ago June Tabor and Oysterband made a landmark album of dark folk together called Freedom and Rain - a union Rolling Stone called “a marriage made in heaven”.


“If you can’t appreciate June Tabor, you should just stop listening to music”, said Elvis Costello. June plus Oysterband’s potent energy and top-flight musicianship made for something out of the ordinary, and they toured the UK and America with great success. Following this friendships continued while careers diverged.

However , a reunion to play a short set at fRoots Magazine’s 30th birthday party at the Roundhouse in 2010 sparked the chemistry again. Soon they were back in the studio, and with a new albumful of gorgeous tunes and brooding intensity called Ragged Kingdom, plus revisited and refreshed songs from 1991, June Tabor and Oysterband launch one of the most anticipated collaborations of recent years. And so it proved - at this year’s BBC Folk Awards Oysterband swept the board receiving 4 awards including Best Group, Best Album and Folk Singer of the Year. Advance booking strongly recommended for what promises to be one of the most magical concerts of the year.
