Travelling folksters the Rubber Wellies present their intimate cabaret of joyful, sing-a-long choruses and general participatory fun. Pirates, lizards, cracks in the wall and Basque cyclists all inhabit the songscape. And a beard snood….
Skippered by singer-songwriter Harry Bird and multi-instrumentalist Christophe Capewell they have spent the last eight years entertaining audiences in all manner of places and in all kinds of weather. Based mainly in Bilbao and Dublin, they have performed all over Europe and beyond in fiestas, festivals, bars and boats, folk clubs, front-rooms, cafés and caves – you name it...
Formally known as Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies, their shifting line-up now sees them perform as an intimate duo, a stomping seven-piece or anything in between. With over 500 gigs and three albums under their belts, they’ve shortened their name but not their sense of adventure!
