MARK RADCLIFFE'S GALLEON BLAST / celtic, Folk, Live Entertainment, Live Music, Originals

Sat 5Aug
8:00 PM

Note: This event has finished



In conjunction with the 2017 Matlock Bath Pirate Mutiny and Press ganged into service by an unscrupulous gangmaster from the Spanish Main (well….Knutsford actually), the swarthy seadogs of GALLEON BLAST occasionally get shore leave to ply their raggle-taggle trade wherever folk will have them, thy being The Fishpond in Matlock Bath!

With a selection of rum-soaked songs and shanties, the Blasters whip up a squally strumming storm to get all and sundry friggin’ in the riggin’.

With traditional tunes and many a seafaring classic from The Dubliners, The Waterboys, The Pogues, Thin Lizzy, The Fisherman’s Friends and Ewan MacColl; you can be sure that these diddly diddly deck-hands will get feet tapping from the poop to the crow’s nest.

Galleon Blast feature banjos, whistles, accordions and fiddles from members of The Family Mahone, Full House
and Mark Radcliffe and Foes, including the pirate dj himself Mr.Radcliffe – the Jack Sparrow of the Radio 2 Folk Show. Actually, make that the Jack Duckworth of the Radio 2 Folk Show.

So, it’s all aboard the good ship Blast for a full-on broadside of buccaneering beats.

Mark and his gang will be supported by SCOTT JEFFERS from Phoenix, USA.

Scott’s music is Celtic Rock/World Fusion based, but of course he has an inner Pirate which from time to time must be released.

He has been the front man for his band ‘Traveler’ for over 10 years and his dynamic showmanship really pays off with the audiences at every performance. His musical abilities are ever evolving and make an impact whether he is with the band or solo. With the use of pedals and a stomp box of his own invention along with the violin, guitar and vocals he creates a big sound rarely seen from a solo performing artist.

He has headlined and performed in festivals around the world with his band and solo including the USA, Canada, Morocco, Turkey and the UK.
