Oysterband and June Tabor 

One of the most exciting collaborations in folk music, June Tabor & Oysterband, resumes this autumn for a major tour. With separate distinguished careers to pursue, their appearances together are necessarily rare, so this is a must-see opportunity to catch them live.

The majesty and control of June’s voice combine with the passion of John Jones’ singing and the dynamic drive of Oysterband to illuminate dark traditional ballads and contemporary classics alike – witness their moving duet version of Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’, widely regarded as the best-ever reinterpretation of that much-covered track. Songs from their seminal 1990 album ‘Freedom & Rain’ and their multi-award-winning 2011 follow-up ‘Ragged Kingdom’ will of course be featured, plus exciting new material.

“….a marriage made in heaven….” – Rolling Stone

“If you can’t appreciate June Tabor, you should just stop listening to music.” – Elvis Costello
