Biography

York, United Kingdom (2009 – present)

Blackbeard’s Tea Party is a British contemporary folk-rock band based in York, UK. The six-piece band plays a mix of traditional folk songs as well as covers of more recent songs from the folk genre. They are also known for their instrumental arrangements of traditional and modern folk tunes, as well as self-penned instrumental material. Blackbeard’s Tea Party function as both a concert and ceilidh band and have become well known on the English folk festival circuit, having performed at Cambridge, Shrewsbury and Sidmouth folk festivals as well as many others.

Funky folk tunes, saucy songs and an infectious stage energy, the band mixes fiddles & squeezeboxes, guitar noise & synth bass, and a feast of international hand percussion to bring you an unforgettable folk-rock extravaganza. Grounded in English traditions - but never afraid to explore more exotic musical avenues - they create a sound that is equal parts tasty, dramatic and danceable.

They began in 2009 with an EP entitled Heaven’s To Betsy. Albums followed, including Tomorrow We’ll Be Sober (2011), Whip Jamboree (2013)
