FOLK world favourites The Boat Band can be relied on to keep the celebrations going with a swing at Northwich Folk Club’s 31st birthday gathering this Friday.
After playing for many years, trawling Britain and beyond, the band has picked up a huge and varied catch of tunes ranging from Caribbean and gospel to Cajun and the blues.
Their latest venture takes them away from the Cajun two-steps of South Louisiana to the dance music of North West England, drawing on the rich tradition of some thousands of tunes collected by and from the musicians of Cheshire, Lancashire and Cumbria.
The music starts at 8.30pm at The Harlequin Theatre, Queen Street. Tickets £6 to none members. All are welcome
