The past few years have seen Blackbeard’s Tea Party play at festivals as diverse as Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival, Fairport’s Cropredy Convention, The Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo and many more. Their latest EP release  ‘Leviathan!’ brings with it a bigger, bolder sound and a revamped live show.
We’re happy to welcome Blackbeard’s Tea Party back to Ely Folk Festival with their brand of gutsy folk rock. A mix of traditional and self-penned songs and tunes are given a heavy rock edge with playful arrangements and driving dance rhythms. This is all mixed up in an engaging, high-octane stage show that frequently leaves audiences cheering for more. Don’t miss them – marquee 1, Friday night!
