Feast of Fiddles April Tour

The Feast of Fiddles set out on their Spring Tour once again in 2024 following a very successful return to the road post pandemic restrictions.

Born in Nettlebed on Valentine’s Day 1994 as a one-off special concert, Feast of Fiddles has done twenty-eight spring tours, twenty-six festivals and has seven CDs to its name. Not bad for a bunch of old folk-rockers! 

This is a band of friends that puts on a show of huge dynamic range performed with passion, joy and a liberal dose of fun.  Typically, Fiddlers Garry Blakeley (Band of Two), Ian Cutler (Bully Wee), Marion Fleetwood (Trad Arr, Sandy Denny Project), Peter Knight (Gigspanner, Steeleye Span), Tom Leary (Joe Brown), Brian McNeill (Battlefield Band) bring a large range of fiddle playing styles to the rock back-line – all held together by legendary drummer Dave Mattacks.

As this is the 30th anniversary of the band you may see and hear past member special guests along the way. Keep an eye open for tour news on the website. This is a live music entertainment like no other on the circuit which is guaranteed to be enjoyed by even the most doubting of friends dragged along!

Exact line up subject to change/confirmation but currently expected to be: Blakeley, Crabtree, Cutler, Fleetwood, Harding, Leary, Mattacks, McNeill, Swarbrick and Vincent.
