Feast of Fiddles

Feast Of Fiddles - A Musical Extravaganza

Feast of Fiddles was born in Nettlebed on Valentine’s Day 1994 as a one-off special concert. Since then the band has done 26 spring tours, 25 festivals and has 7 CDs to its name. Not bad for a bunch of old folk-rockers!

This is a group of friends that puts on a show of huge dynamic range performed with passion, joy and a liberal dose of fun. Fiddlers Peter Knight (Gigspanner, Steeleye Span), Chris Leslie (Fairport Convention), Brian McNeill (Battlefield Band), Ian Cutler (Bully Wee), Tom Leary (Joe Brown Band) and Garry Blakeley (Band of Two) add the large range of fiddle playing...

"They don't play together often, but when they do it's spectacular"  5***** R2 Magazine

The Gigspanner Big Band are a unique force in British folk music.

Their high-energy, virtuosic performances appeal equally to traditionalists and to those looking for something more experimental, and they have garnered praise from publications as varied as fRoots, The Telegraph and The Wire, where they were described as ‘melodically folk-rooted yet open and innovative beyond the constraints of genre’

Faustus Tour Comes to Exeter Phoenix

Event Date: 
19/04/2020 - 8:00pm to 10:30pm
Venue: 
Exeter Phoenix

Early 2020 saw Faustus performing at venues in Australia and New Zealand. The band are back in the UK and touring in April 2020 with a selection of their material, including from their newest EP, Cotton Lords (2019).

Playing music for our times, Faustus take traditional English music, rip it up, put it together again and move it on. A vigorous rhythmic impetus and rock/prog rock influence propels the sound into the here and now and a range of instruments deployed in unconventional ways gives a unique texture, depth and variety to the band’s sound.
