Blackbeard’s Tea Party

Be prepared to stamp your wooden legs: Blackbeard’s Tea Party are back with their latest album ‘We Are People’.

Blackbeard’s Tea Party continue to put their signature twist on British folk music with a contemporary rock sound. On this new collection they explore the past and the present to ask what it means to be British right now – from personal, political and piratical perspectives.

On the ‘We Are People’ tour they will perform these new tracks along with classics from their back catalogue. Sea-shanties are given a bombastic rock edge, and folk instrumentals become late-night floor-fillers when this raucous bunch of reprobates hit the stage. They have dirt under their fingernails and a twinkle in their eyes, and you can expect fantastic musicianship, playful choreography and an unstoppable urge to move your body.

Electric guitars, fiddle, melodeon, drums and 4-part harmonies combine to create music that is drenched in tradition, but filtered through a kaleidoscope of modern rock and pop.
