The intruigingly-named Perch Creek Family Jugband will play The Gordon Arms, Yarrow Valley on Sunday (August 10) at 7pm.
Consisting of five multi-instrumentalists and vocalists, four of whom happen to be siblings, the Australian band’s latest material introduces the world to steam-powered roots music plugged into 3,000 volts of creative energy and a fearless spirit that sparkles with imagination and individuality.
The band have been performing and evolving over the best part of 10 years, taking their music far beyond the well-trodden territory of traditional jug band music, and laying the foundations to become one of the most entertaining and innovative original musical acts doing the rounds of Australia and the international stage today.
The band have made a number of appearances, from The Sydney Opera House to major festivals across Australia, Europe and the UK, including Edinburgh Fringe, The Green Man, The Falls Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, Golden Plains –promoting their latest album Jumping On The Highwire.
Promising a high energy show and larger than life characters, theband are making a name for themselves in Europe and this album tour sees them visiting the Borders as part of a three-month tour of Europe, the UK and Canada.
Tickets are £8.
