Wadebridge Street Band
Saturday Aug 24, 2019 @ 11:30 am – 12:00 pm
Wadebridge Street Band was started in 2014 as a ‘Creative Hub’ project. Most of the present group were at that session, but Streetband has moved towards a more traditional ‘folk’ presentation, with harp, flutes, guitars and drum. ‘Streetband’ works co-operatively, so the style of music is whatever members want to play, from Cornish folk tunes and dances through to current popular music and original songs.
‘Grow-your-own’ talent has come forward, with Paul Renshall creating new songs for the group. You can hear Streetband playing his ‘Blown on the Wind’ on Soundcloud.
Streetband’s performances are mostly at events in and around Wadebridge, to add to the atmosphere of events like Bodmin Heritage Day, and the Cornwall Folk Festival’s ‘Shanty Street’.
