Good News for Kate Rusby - just posted on her website

"Some of you attending the recent concerts will know already but our latest good news is that Kate and her partner, Damien O'Kane, are expecting their first child in early September. We are all really excited and can't wait! It does mean that there won't be any tour dates in the Autumn."   Pure Records

This is now a particularly special gig...

poster and full details on Bulletin Board _at_ < >

£12.00 / £10 Unwaged 

Refreshing humour and serious singing from this eccentric and musically accomplished Australian male voice choir.  In 2006, they stormed the Towersey Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe singing folk, beautiful Georgian harmonies, untraditional versions of pop classics, and maudlin commentaries on being a bloke.  

 "They are simply astounding and outstanding.  I admire them immensely."  
Roy Bailey 

Genial buffonery and immaculate, testosterone drenched vocals define the Spooky Men’s Chorale, a ruthless bunch of larrikins based in the Blue Mountains of NSW, whose stated ambition is to make women cry, small children afraid, and real estate salesmen vaguely aware that somewhere, there is a world they’ve never experienced. Their repertoire ranges from a version of ‘Satisfaction’ that would delight but puzzle the ‘Rolling Stones’, to the hauntingly rich harmonies from Georgia.  Also included may be their own compositions such as ‘Don’t come between a man and his Tools’ and ‘Vote the Bastards Out’. 

 “... probably the best programming choice of the entire summer festival circuit” 
The Irish Times 

To sample their sound and learn more about their unique combination of beards, belly laughs, and sheer musicality, go to  

Supported by: The Wolvercote Strollers who bring a rich mix of music from folk to popular classics.  The Wolvercote Strollers are a six piece Oxford band who have played and sung together since 1996. They have wowed the Wolvercote summer Festival with their lively and lovely sounds.  Featuring some stunning harmonies, these accomplished musicians offer an eclectic range of contemporary music spanning folk, jazz, blues and rock.
