This week: OxJam Glastonbury at The King Arthur and Glastonbury FM

Next up on The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake’s calendar is the first leg of OxJam at the King Arthur Inn, Glastonbury on Friday October 2nd.

Oxjam Arthur 2016 12002068_1079407418738870_4520637801394331337_nGrim pictures in the news recently remind us all what an important role charities like Oxfam play in the world so we are really pleased to be able to do our bit. And we always love playing down at the Arfer so what could be better?

I’ll tell you what – it ain’t just us but a stack of other acts from across the musical spectrum: Missy Edwards, Henry Wacey, Entangled Band, Duncan Batey and UK:ID. There’s got to be something there to take your fancy!

And they’ve got proper cider in the King Arthur too.

To promote the gig, we’ll be appearing on Glastonbury FM the night before to play a few songs. So tune in to 107.1 FM (or listen online) Thursday evening and hear how that goes.

Hope to see you on Friday for a proper good night out!

Well last night’s gig at CICCIC in Taunton was an intimate and beautiful thing. We had the slightly embarrassing task of trying to follow the amazing talents of two superb singer songwriters Lee Rahn and Sophie Hosken-Taylor. We’re sure that these guys are destined for big things so if you get a chance see them while you can.

We were concerned how our brand of ramshackle hill-billy would folow such delicate craftmanship. But fortunately, enough people in Taunton decided that Strictly X Factor and/or the Rugby wasn’t enough to stay at home and came out to join in on rhythm section. (What Jeremy Corbyn would probably call ‘The People’s Percussion’) and it turned into a lovely evening.

All in all, a good time was had, met some great people and I’m sure we’ll be back.

(And we now know that CICCIC is Kick Kick. Not sick sick.).

PS: We’ll be back again in Taunton soon for OxJam at The White Hart on October 30. And I think there are already plans afoot to come back to the CIC again soon


Snakes are coming to Taunton!

Our song on ‘The Cider Hunters’ documentary

Our song ‘shakeSHAKEshake’ is set to be featured on a new TV show! And it looks bloomin’ marvelous!

Level Films are working with our old friend, (occasional band photographer) and world renown cider expert Bill Bradshaw on a new TV Series called The Cider Hunters.

Chillifest love

What a superb weekend at Upton Cheyney Chilli fest. After a year away it was great to be back.

We met so many cool people and saw so much cool stuff: Sicknote Steve and his home made double neck guitar/portable drinks cabinet, Sue Fairy’s hospitality and flaming washing machine, Zeus the Dog, Steve Wurzel‘s songs about cider and cheese (and cider), zebra and python burgers and chilli everything. And most of all the many members of the public who stopped by, watched and joined in with our musical nonsense. And thanks to Harry the Ukeleleguywemetinthepubthenightbefore who deputied for Chris on Sunday. Biggest thanks to Alex Chilli for having back again.

We’ve already had a few pix and vids posted to the facebook page, so if you were one of the many with your camera pointing at the weirdos playing music next to the pigsty, feel free to share the evidence. We think we spotted an official event photographer going round to so if those pics appear we’ll share them on here too if we can.

Thanks again all – hope to see you next year when we’ll do it all again.

Upton Cheyney Chilli Festival

We are thrilled to be returning for a THIRD time to the fantastic Upton Cheyney Chilli Festival.

Since we last went, it’s been expanded to a 2 day event and added an extra focus upon cider.

“Voted the best UK Chilli Festival of 2014 and the only chilli festival actually held on a chilli farm its easy to see why we are the UK’s favourite”

There’s a great line-up of musicians over the weekend (including some bright young wannabes called The Wurzels) as well as all manner of fun and frolics and AL things chilli including the infamous Chilli Eating Competition.

And yes, there is Chilli Cider.


Sat In A Field – Brilliant!

We’d heard great things about Sat In A Field Festival before playing and it certainly lived up to expectations. Some ‘inclement’ weather the previous day dampened the ground but not spirits and we received a wet, but very warm welcome indeed. Special thanks go to Oz and his crew for making us so welcome. We’re already looking forward to coming back for more next year!

Here are some pics for your perusal…
