Southern Tenant Folk Union

Folk/Bluegrass Wednesday 1st September @ 8.00pm

Southern Tenant Folk Union is an explosive Edinburgh-based folk and bluegrass outfit, writing and performing its own unique brand of Old-Time, Bluegrass, Gospel and Celtic Folk. Taking its name from the ground breaking multi-racial union of sharecroppers and non-landowning tenant farmers founded in Arkansas in the 1930s, words like ‘groundbreaking', ‘excellent' and 'breath of fresh air' are never far from descriptions of the band and its music. As is general acclaim. The band line-up comprises: Adam Bulley (mandolin/guitar/dobro/vocals; Silas Child (double bass/vocals); Ben Ivitsky (fiddle/vocals); Ewan Macintyre (guitar/percussion/vocals); Chris Purcell (guitar/vocals); Jed Milroy (guitar/vocals); Pat McGarvey (banjo/guitar/vocals). STFU's third album The New Farming Scene has just been released. These guys are the real deal. Don't miss them.

Adm.: €15 / €12 (concessions)
