Travelling folk band The Rubber Wellies will be seeing out the last tour of the year with a performance at Bennigans Bar on Friday, 27th October.
Described by BBC Radio 2’s legendary Folk DJ, Mike Harding as: "One of my favourite bands of recent years", the unique folk group pride themselves on being original, entertaining and thought provoking, and are very much looking forward to bringing their show to Bennigans.
“This is our last tour of tour of the year and also our first time playing in Derry. We’re really looking forward to it” said multi instrumentalist Christophe Capewell.
The Rubber Wellies will be a trio on the night with Harry Bird on guitar and vocals, Kate Theodore on violin and vocals, and Christophe Capewell who will be on violin, ukulele and melodica duties.
It's been a busy year for the hard working band, with lots of gigs and performances at a variety of festivals across the UK chalked off, while also an intense three week tour of Italy back in February too.
The Rubber Wellies: There's a River (Live)
What can you expect from the band on the night? Their multi-lingual performances are a mix of musical story-telling, good-time sing-alongs and fun-filled crowd participation that flip between poignant introspection and carefree raucousness.
Their music is influenced by narratives from curious everyday occurrences, global politics and folk legends and their style is an international mash-up of sea shanties, mexican rancheras, bossa nova, reggae, old time and swing.
You can catch The Rubber Wellies at Bennigans on Friday, 27th October from 10pm, £5 in.
