Group shot of the york ceilidh band Blackbeard's Tea Party.

BLACKBEARD'S TEA PARTY
YORK BASED CONCERT AND CEILIDH BAND


Funky folk tunes, storming songs and an infectious stage energy, Blackbeard's Tea Party mix fiddles & squeezeboxes, guitar noise & synth bass, and a feast of international hand percussion to bring you an unforgettable folk-rock extravaganza. Grounded in English traditions, but never afraid to explore more exotic musical avenues. Whether playing a raucous concert slot or performing as a high energy ceilidh band, they create a sound that is equal parts tasty, dramatic and danceable.


Available for gigs and ceilidhs at festivals, folk clubs, weddings, private events, pubs, parties and weird funerals.

The band is also available in a smaller, all acoustic format suitable for folk clubs and smaller events.

While based in York, we will travel as necessary, be it elsewhere in Yorkshire or the rest of the country.

Have a listen to our music or watch our videos, and for merchandise please visit our shop!
