Blackbeard's Tea Party - 2014 North West Tour Dates

Blackbeard's Tea PartyBlackbeard's Tea Party will be taking their high octane and slightly mental brand of folk rock on the road in 2014.  

Starting out as a busking, function and ceilidh band, BTP quickly gained a reputation as a formidable live act and soon found themselves selling out venues in their home town of York.   Now, with two albums to their credit (both reviewed on this site) they look forward to the year with a series of gigs and festival appearances.

Blackbeards Tea Party are:

Stuart Giddens: melodeon,  vocals
Tim Yates: bass, melodeon, trombone, sousaphone
Martin Coumbe: electric guitar, lidl acoustic guitar
Dave Boston: djembe, congas, shakey things, bells, faux bells
Liam  'Yom' Hardy: cajon, drums, tambourine, minature cymbal
Laura  Barber: fiddle, cello
