Fabulous Whalebone at Dunsden Village Hall on Nov. 11
Whalebone are a trio of acoustic musicians who were a hit last time they came to the village hall. Their music features high energy acoustic music alongside haunting atmospheric tunes. The show includes brand-new material from their new album 'Mirabilia', inventive interpretations of traditional music, rock classics and original material from their award-winning albums along with tall tales, folklore and myths which inspired the music. With artistic sensitivity always at the fore coupled with their charismatic rapport at live shows Whalebone continue to seduce audiences wherever they perform.
There will be a fully licensed bar featuring Loddon ales and snacks will also be served.
