Barnstormer & Attila the Stockbroker play @TheOvalTavern, 8pm Thursday 20 September

thumb_Oval Tavern colour

Barnstormer aim to do with early music & punk what the Pogues did with Irish music & punk.

The songs are mostly based around the time at the end of the civil war, after the king was beheaded. Previously marginal ideas of social justice and equality spread across the land. Barnstormer’s songs are about the Diggers, the Levellers, the Ranters and the radical factions of the New Model Army – all with an eye on what‘s happening now.

Instruments include the recorder, mandola, mandocello, violin, viola, crumhorn, cornemuse and shawm.  Support: Atilla the Stockbroker (spoken word set).
