Palmerston, will play at Banbury Folk Club on December 18.

Banbury Folk Club plays host to local band Palmerston on Wedesday December 18 for its annual Christmas party bash.

The band consists of Alan Rondeau on vocals, guitar, mandolin and cardboard cowbell, founder member, and the man who once lived in Palmerston Road, Dave Norman on vocals, bass and cigarette lighter; Martin Hartup on vocals, guitar and tuning fork; Peter Ball on vocals, keyboard, fiddle, squeezebox, and empty glass, and Andy Powell on vocals, banjo, harmonica, and percussion.

Palmerston’s musical style is eclectic, inspired by the songs of Alan Rondeau, whose lyrics cover all aspects of life, from love and lust, to drink and death.

Theirs is a refreshing and varied sound featuring several voices with superb harmonies and a great selection of instruments.

The gig takes place at the Millers Bar at The Mill Arts Centre and starts at 8.30pm. There will be Christmas nibbles at half-time.

Tickets are available on the door at £8, concessions £7. More information at www.banburyfolkclub.co.uk
