Een schitterende concert van the Oysterband
Oysterband (originally The Oyster Band) is a British folk rock and folk punk band formed in Canterbury around 1976. The band formed in parallel to Fiddler’s Dram, and under the name “Oyster Ceilidh Band” played purely as a dance band at first. The name Oyster comes from the group’s early association with the coastal town of Whitstable in East Kent, known for the quality of its oysters. Their first album, released under the Oyster Ceilidh Band name, was Jack’s Alive (1980) on the Dingles record label. Subsequent albums, as “Oyster Band” (sometimes “The Oyster Band”) were released on the band’s own Pukka Music label: English Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Early Years 1800–1850 and Lie Back and Think of England, followed by Liberty Hall and 20 Golden Tie-Slackeners.
