Fri 5th October 2012 – 1st Birthday Party

Picture of the Malmesbury Acoustic Sessions Birthday Cake 2012What a belter!The Malmesbury Acoustic Sessions birthday party was a proper knees up. Way Out West set the tone perfectly, then The Drystones blew us all away (again!) and made us all feel a bit nostalgic, and The Mighty Peas reminded us all that it was actually a birthday party with a storming set!A thousand thanks to all who came and supported the night, the hugely talented artists who played and the invaluable Malmesbury Acoustic Crew for your time and effort.

Here are some of the vids from the night – follow the links for more.

The Mighty Peas

The Mighty Peas play some superb cover versions in what can only be described as ragtime meets punk acoustica style. Hopefully you’ll see what we mean…they are certainly entertaining and galvanized as a band with a mutual desire not to starve to death.


The Drystones

The Drystones were the first act to appear at the Malmesbury Acoustic Sessions. We welcomed them back with open arms…they were boys then, very talented boys…and they still are! They are skilful beyond their years, endearing and great foot stomping fun. Yeehaaa.


Way Out West

One of our favourite acts from last year return. A dizzying fusion of accordion, fiddle, guitar, banjo and ukulele. Here’s one of the bizarre highlights – how do they think up this stuff?
