Jez Hellard & The Djukella Orchestra

Monday 6th November

Jez Hellard &The Djukella Orchestra play high-grade mongrel folk music - from jigs, reels and rebel ballads to tango, rhumba and reggae. Featuring the Hebridean lilt of Alastair Caplin (The Langan Band, Band of Burns), the London Irish grit of TEYR (James Gavin, Dominic Henderson & Tommie Black-Roff) and Nye Parsons, one of the most captivating double-bassists you're likely to hear, coupled with Hellard's potent songs, guitar picking and frankly stunning harmonica playing, their blend of virtuoso musicianship, witty political comment and a deep repertoire of powerful songs never fails to turn heads. Since 2006 Jez and various djukellas have played well over a thousand gigs; from the Glastonbury Festival to the North Country Fair, New York to Taipei, Istanbul to the Iberian Peninsular. 8pm-11pm, £8 in Advance
