Man The Lifeboats are bringing their stomping folk set to north Norfolk with an appearance this weekend in Burnham Deepdale.
Hot on the heels of the release of their new album, Soul Of Albion, and channelling Tom Waite, The Pogues and The Waterboys, the London outfit will be playing Deepdale Farm on Saturday, November 12, in a sold-out show.
It’s part of a tour that follows an album launch party last month on Sir Francis Drake’s Golden Hind.
“So much has happened in the past three years, the world feels like a very different place,” said MTL frontman Rich Quarterman.
“There were times during the making of this album where we stopped and thought it might not happen at all. Sessions delayed, studios cancelled, online rehearsals, songs not coming together.
“And yet the drive and determination of the band won through, and Jamie Evans, our amazing friend and producer, kept pushing and pushing.
“The brief to Jamie was to make the absolute best album we can possibly make. And we feel we’ve done that.”
Support at Deepdale will come from folk singer Adam Clark.
