We had a fantastic time in Stocksfield on Feb 11th. There was a great crowd, and The Stocksfield Stompers provided a wonderful first half hour of tunes and songs to get us underway. Many thanks to Chris Pentney of Sharper Than who organised the concert, arranged the hall & bar and provided a fabulous tea between soundcheck and concert. If you weren’t able to make it, you can have a little taste of what you missed in the video below. This is from our last set of the evening, and includes two of our favourite tunes, Da Sweerie Box and Willie Taylor’s Fiddle (by Lal Robertson).
You can next see Bottle Bank Band at Sage Gateshead as part of the Folkworks: Pass It On Festival. Our concert is a free but ticketed event – tickets can be reserved here: Bottle Bank Band Introduce Tyneside Tunes (Sat 4th March, 3.30pm).
