Fairport and Led Zeppelin inspiration for Whalebone

Fairport Convention and Led Zeppelin might be two diverse acts to be influenced by but a band performing in the area next month is taking the best from both bands.

Whalebone can be seen at Kilsby Village Hall on Saturday, April 16, from 7.30pm.

The group’s music is a marriage of folk music and classic guitar rock played on acoustic guitars and fiddle, combining upfront spellbinding musicianship, infectious driving rhythms and exuberant presentation.

The three piece band’s performances feature fiery and emotive original material, supercharged renditions of traditional music and wild re-workings of rock guitar classics.

The band will visit the venue on Rugby Road as part of a UK tour. For anyone who doesn’t get chance to see them in Kilsby, they will be performing at Dunchurch Village Hall on Saturday, May 14.

Tickets for the show are £8.50 for adults and £7.50 for children. They can be booked in advance by calling 01788 823178 or 07940 525272. Tickets can also be bought online by visiting www.ticketsource.co.uk/whalebone.
