Once the bad boys of folk and rock, Oysterband have grown over the past five years into the role of musical custodians and godfathers of folk. Collaborative tours with rising young stars under the banner of The Big Session, and numerous awards including Best Group in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, have led to the most exciting time in Oysterband's considerable history. "No other folk-rock band has the magnetism and verve of the Oysters live," Daily Telegraph.
