Adrian Edmondson and The Bad Shepherds

RSS
23 November 2013

The eclectic mix of punk songs and folk instruments come to Falmouths Princess Pavilion.

The Bad Shepherds play punk songs on folk instruments. Not as a gag, but because they really like the noise.

 

They think the songs are better than people remember. They love folk instruments. It works.

They do songs by The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Stranglers, The Jam, Sham 69, The Undertones, The Ramones, The Buzzcocks, The Specials, Talking Heads, Squeeze and others, even Kraftwerk!

Alright, they're not all punk, but they come from roughly the same era. They've mostly given the songs a kind of Celtic feel, and they've stuck in the odd reel and jig here and there. But occasionally they just thrash! They've always thought the excitement of a reel taking off is the nearest thing to the excitement of watching punk live in the 70's.

World-renowned Troy Donockley plays the ethereal uillean pipes and the bouzouki with Andy Dinan on the fiddle, the three of them now form the core of the band with occasional guest musicians. Adrian plays the Mandolin.

Doors 8pm, Starts 8.30pm
