Orkney Folk Festival in Westray: New Rope String Band

21/05/2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

£6 – £12
Once seen, never forgotten: an indefinable confusion of superb musicianship and side-splitting comic genius,
the New Rope String Band are truly unique entertainers. Elements of circus, clowning, vaudeville, slapstick and sheer inspired silliness are spliced with beautiful acoustic music from various world traditions, in precision-honed yet uproarious performances that have delighted audiences from Borneo’s Sarawak rainforest to the Shetland Folk Festival.
“inspired madness” The Scotsman,
…best thing of the festival – by popular vote!” Belfast Childrens Festival,
“…prodigious musicianship laced with their very own brand of slapstick”, The Glasgow Herald
Great fun for all the family!
Tickets available at the door (£12, £6 Concessions)
