MAN THE LIFEBOATS + support
Friday, May 17th
Man the Lifeboats play raucous, upbeat folk music, for those who like a drink with their tunes. This London-based five-piece use an array of instruments to craft songs with big choruses that tell stories.
Formed in the wake of a blistering Skinny Lister gig back in 2016, Harvey, Richie, Sam, Dan and David have taken their shared love of straight-up lyrics, pounding bass-lines, lilting mandolin and fiddle melodies and stomping beats and have created a sound that would not be out of place at a party at the end of the world.
Influences? Well, up there with Skinny Lister we have the Pogues, Bellowhead, Tom Waits, Dylan, Springsteen, Frank Turner, Holy Moly & the Crackers, and of course, Chic.
Throw all that in a cauldron and you end up with a blistering live experience, tales of lost evenings, ballads of doomed love and shanties about whisky-soaked nights, Michael Palin, and the end of the world.....a tonic for these troubled times!
