Hi Muddy Cats, just thought I'd let you know about a gig we're involved with.
Rising stars of the Canadian Folk Scene 'Viper Central' are touring the UK and we are doing a gig with them on Thursday 19th of July at The Cumberland Arms in Newcastle.
Here's a quick bit of blurb about both bands, hope to see you there should be good!
Thursday 19th July
The Cumberland Arms
At the forefront of a rising wave of new talent in the bluegrass and old-time music genres, VIPER CENTRAL has managed to create an original niche in an otherwise traditional style and yet simultaneously appeal to audiences both young and old. Hailing from Vancouver, Canada, they approach their music with the sense of creativity and adventure found in the earliest bluegrass and old time recordings. While all members contribute original songs, the band won't hesitate to deliver their take on an ages-old mournful waltz or bring the house down with a barn-burning bluegrass standard.
"Viper Central brought down the house at two concerts at the 2010 San Francisco Bluegrass & Old Time Festival. Both their shows were so packed we had to turn people away at the door. They lived up to their billing. Extremely exciting music, great musicianship and singing, creativity, a fun show - what more could you ask. Everyone loved them."
- Ken Frankel
San Francisco Bluegrass & Old Time Festival
Hailing from Brighton, The Galleons mix traditional British folk music with more modern indie influences.
"One of the UKs most exciting and original new bands, start with folk and then throw in a bit of almost everything else to create beautifully crafted songs, that stick in the mind long after the last chord has rung."
- Wessex Folk Festival

Saw them at Gate to Southwell FF last year and at Mansfield folk club last week - brilliant band, well worth a trip to see them
