BANDERSNATCH

Ramsbottom Folk Club

An evening of the finest folk music in Ramsbottom, this month featuring special guest artists Bandersnatch.

Bandersnatch have created a distinctive style within the folk, roots and acoustic genre with a blend of great harmonies and wonderful musical arrangements. The band has the ability to move seamlessly from traditional to contemporary and self-penned material with a repertoire ranging from gentle ballads to driving, rhythmical folk rock and blues.

Whilst often giving a refreshing edge to established favourites, the band also endeavours to introduce contrasting material from the less frequently explored corners of this particular musical landscape.

Bandersnatch are supported by Helen and Dave Howard. Helen and Dave recently returned to the area after spending 16 years in Ireland. They were well known in the Manchester area before they moved away in 1996, for running and being residents in various folk clubs, Dave for all his recordings and also for being one of the Oldham Tinkers. They do a wide range of material from traditional to modern, Scottish, English and Irish songs and tunes.
