Band Info

Travelling folksters Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies present their intimate cabaret of joyful sing-a-long choruses and general participatory fun. Pirates, lizards, cracks in the wall and Basque cyclists all inhabit the songscape. And let's not forget that Beard Snood....
Based in Bilbao and Dublin they have spent the last three years touring Ireland, the UK and mainland Europe playing bars, cafes, theatres, circus galas, festivals and folk clubs alike.
Their debut album, "Long Way to Be Free", appeared in 2009 on Hot Drop Records and their second, "The Bones on Black", was released in March 2012. A third release is due to follow in 2013, all being well.
"an album that consistently surprises and delights...it is folk music as artefact, not industry...simply magnificent." - R2
"one of my favourite bands of recent years." - Mike Harding, former BBC Radio 2 presenter
"a fantastically enjoyable chilled out mesh of musical culture...unique blend of international folk music." - The London Music Blog
