Man The Lifeboats Album Launch

Doors Open at 7pm

Music Starts 7:30pm 

 

Join us for the launch of Man the Lifeboats new album Soul Of Albion

Man The Lifeboats have been ploughing their folky furrow on the festival circuit, winning over audiences and drawing comparisons to Bellowhead, Waterboys, Oysterband, the Levellers, and of course, those folk-punk heroes the Pogues.

The songs are raucous, upbeat, lyrical, driving. Traditional tunes are dragged kicking and
screaming into the modern age, songs are crafted with big choruses that tell stories. Songs with straight-up lyrics, pounding bass lines, furious banjo and fiddle melodies and stomping beats, Man The Lifeboats have cultivated a sound that would not be out of place at a party at the end of the world.

Their new album sounds like Led Zeppelin arm-wrestling Shane McGowan in a Birmingham brewery, like Jimbob and Fruitbat fronting Fairport Convention, like The Albion Band turned up to 11 with their fiddles on fire.
