Ashcott Beerfest: The legendary snakeSNAKEsnake playing Friday (tomorrow) night!

BEERFEST POSTER 2019 vrsn2

A reminder for this weekend’s Ashcott Beerfest. Tjis truly is one of the best beer and music festivals in the area. A proper little community fundraiser now in its 21st year it’s run by brilliant people, with plenty of good music, good beer and a great atmosphere.

If you’ve been before you’ll know this already. If you haven’t been before, why not make this year your first? It’s gonna be a corker.

We’re there on Friday night.

Weston-Snakey-Mare! Friday 28th June – Bonds Wine Bar – Weston Super Mare

This Friday we’ll be playing at Bonds Wine Bar, Weston-Super-Mare.

As some of you may already know, we’re rather fond of WSM, mainly thanks to the happy times we spent there with Johnny Cash back in the day. So much, we even co-wrote a song with him about it.

We’re looking forward to going back. The Tropicana, the pier, the donkeys. Pack your bucket and spade and join us for an ice cream!

PS: We’ve also heard there’ may be a ‘sex rampage!’

See you down the front!

Bank Holiday Sunday – Sun, snakes and cider comin’ to Yeovil

Ahh, the sun is out, warming our cockles and getting us in the mood for a summer of snakes.

First up we’re coming to Yeovil to play a right-royal shake up at The Royal Standard on Sunday 5th May.

To whet your appetite, here are some interesting facts about Yeovil:

  • The first recorded vaccination in the world took place in 1774 at a farm on the outskirts of Yeovil when a farmer deliberately infected his wife’s arms with cowpox to prevent small pox. Romantic.
  • All of the footballers make gloves (or something, I think)
  • The town now has 2 railway stations but used to have 4. We can only presume that all of the old rail lines have since evolved into town’s sprawling one-way system.
  • The town’s motto is “The Heart of the Country, the Mind of a City”. And someone in Yeovil knows what that means. But we don’t.
  • As well as 2 stations, Yeovil also has 3 vowels, 9 springs and the world’s greatest, and as far as we know, only Quedam. What is a Quedam? Good question. Come and help us find out on Sunday!

Weston-Snakey-Mare Saturday 9th February @The Golden Lion, Worle

This Saturday we’ll be playing at The Golden Lion, Worle, Weston-Super-Mare.

As some of you may already know, we’re rather fond of WSM, mainly thanks to the happy times we spent there with Johnny Cash back in the day. So much, we even co-wrote a song with him about it.

We’ve also heard there’ may be a ‘sex rampage!’

ICYMI: Harry’s Cider Wassail video!

If you couldn’t make it to Harry’s Cider Company Wassail, or you did but for some purely non-cider related reason can’t remember it, Ledgersolutions have put together this rather splendid video on facebook – check it out!

We also grabbed some video on the night which we’ll splice together and share in due course.  A mighty good time was had by all with some damn fine wassailing – we reckon we’re in for a bumper harvest this year!

WASSAIL! WASSAIL! How do you like dem apples?

Wassail season is upon us. The time of year we drink to the health of apple trees for a healthy harvest. Now, traditionally this takes place on old twelfth night (17th January), so many of you may have already been out wassailing. However, if you have missed out, or want another opportunity to have a pagan apple party – fear not! This coming weekend award-winning cider makers Harry’s Cider at Long Sutton are having their wassail and The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake will be there. As well as music and dancing there will be a traditional wassail ceremony in the orchard, morris dancing, hot food and of course, plenty of cider. It starts at 5pm so be there early!

This is likely to sell out so we recommend getting your tickets in advance here. Early bird tickets are just £8.50.

As for the best way of getting the apples out of the tree, we have a song about that.

See you down the front!
