It's over three years since this cheerful band played Number 39 and we've missed them, so we are most pleased to announce that Bo Weavel will be back amongst us tonight with a new line-up.
From Manchester Bo Weavil are a band who unashamedly play to the crowd with an entertaining mix of upbeat folk medleys, steady ballads and mournful blues, peppered all the way with plentiful harmony singing and an emphasis on authoritative fiddle melodies. You can quench your thirst on an evolving brew of folk, blues, country and bluegrass which will all blend into a lively evening.
"Recalling the music of the 1920s and 1930s, Manchester-based Bo Weavil take to authentic American roots music like ducks to water; it's as if it were in their blood. With an emphasis on old-time and country blues styles, their influences are peppered with the occasional seasoning of Celtic heartbeat, cosmic vibe and reggae rhythm, creating a very distinctive contemporary slant on this timeless music." - Allan Wilkinson, Northern Sky Music Magazine.
