Concertzender wereldmuziek live: Oysterband – The 25th anniversary concert

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the team of Concertzender Live cannot present new concerts to you. To try and keep true to our programme, we will listen to live recordings, but these will be official CD or DVD releases.

Today, we’ll listen to some songs from the DVD ‘ 25th-anniversary concert’ of the British folk-rock band ‘The Oysterband’. The concert was recorded in The Forum in London on 12 December 2003. The Uillean Piper James O’Grady, members of Chumbawamba, and folk singer June Tabor with whom the band recorded the successful album ‘Freedom and Rain’ in 1990. A setlist of the Oysterband consists of old traditional songs, edits of pop songs, and their own strong compositions. The band is at its best, they’re bursting with enthusiasm, and the audience is going crazy. It’s one of the best live albums out there.
