Live at Red Lion, West Pennard. Saturday 14th November

We were gutted to have to postpone our date at The Red Lion in West Pennard over the summer. It’s an iconic piece of rural pubbery. So much so, it featured in this year’s pre-world cup VisitEngland TV advert. And if you’ve ever walked that long trek from Glastonbury festival to Glastonbury town, you’re surely familiar with it.

OxJam The King Arthur

http://www.oxfam.org.uk/media/~/media/Images/Events/Oxjam/main-header-new-v2.ashx

Well done to all who came and helped make OxJam at The King Arthur a success.

In 2014 the at Oxjam King Arthur raised £164. After adding up all the pennies, foreign coins, old lottery tickets, micro sd cards and other dodgy material. this year we smashed it by raising £274.01!

Unfortunately, on the night a last minute family emergency meant that we were down to 2 men and had to do some quick thinking but managed to get something together and helped to out part. And we doff our caps to all the other amazing musicians who donated their time and talent for free: UKID, TheEntangledband, Henry Wacey, Paul O’Reilly for sound engineering even though he was feeling unwell, The King Arthur for hosting, Phoenix Somerset, GFM and Central Somerset Gazette for their help to promote the event and everyone who came to support the event and donated to Oxfam. Especially big well-done to Missy Edwards who not only masterminded the whole event but also made a fantastic post-Missart live debut.  Lots of pictures and video from the night are circulating Facebook and we’ll have some to upload here soon.

We’ll also be playing at two further OxJam Somerset events at the end of the month: Friday 30th at The White Hart in Taunton and 31st at Glastonbury Bocabar (hopefully with all 3 of us this time). To find out more about Oxjam look on www.phoenixsomerset.org.uk.


Snakes on The Radio! – Listen Again.

GFM 107.1FM

If you missed our live session on Glastonbury FM last week, you can listen again here.

We went on to promote last week’s OxJam show at The King Arthur with Missy Edwards and played 3 songs: shakeSHAKEshake, The Ballad of David Van Day and Whoowee! We’re on from about 26-50mins.

There’s loads of music from other local bands on there too. Thursday Live is a weekly showcase of local music and if you haven’t checked it out already then you should. Big thanks to Ian Liversidge for having us on and making us feel at home. We look forward to popping in again soon.

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
