Festival Folk Band The Chair Travel South of the Border for the First Time!

The Met welcomes eight piece festival band The Chair on Saturday 2 April at 8pm.

The Chair feature 2 fiddles, accordion, banjo, mandolin, guitar, bass, drums and percussion, creating a big full-blooded sound. The mix of Orcadian, Scottish, Irish and European tunes are under-pinned by a dynamic rhythm section, drawing inspiration from diverse styles from rock to salsa and jazz. The result is a unique sound that is guaranteed to get an audience on the dance-floor.

Multi award winning and avid festival players, this is a rare chance to see them performing in England and their first non-festival date south of the border.

\”… Big on both melody and rhythm, stirring in dirty blues riffs and heavy dub beats along with Celtic and east European tunes, all welded together by strikingly sharp musicianship.\” Hi-Arts magazine
