Hi everyone

The Memory Band are one of my favourite acts, but their live performances are few and far between. You should therefore take the opportunity to hear them while you can. You won't regret it.

An English folk super-group that draws on talents from across the spectrum of contemporary music, The Memory Band was formed by a network of musicians all sharing a predilection for music of an acoustic bent and songs about love and dancing.

Fresh from Glastonbury Festival, where they played music and songs from The Wicker Man on The Park Stage, the band is sure to Fresh from Glastonbury Festival, where they played music and songs from The Wicker Man on The Park Stage, the band is sure to enchant you with their mesmerising melodies, rhythms, strings and singing in harmonic unison.

If you've never been there the Slaughtered Lamb it is a nice intimate venue, and quite central.

I'd get your skates on because this will sell out fast I reckon. ?8 well spent.
