Part of City Roots 2018
A masterclass with Folk Festival favourites, CC Smugglers.
Whether its escalators, train carriages or train queues, nowhere has escaped a performance from this exceptional band on their way to success! Sharing hard-won gems of advice and experience, this is a unique chance to meet the Bedfordshire 6-piece for invaluable behind-the-scenes tips on successfully building and running a band, song writing and stagecraft…Smugglers style!
The band from Beds started out as “guerrilla buskers”, hijacking queues waiting to see other artists, or commandeering underground trains and escalators. They got their big break by playing outside every UK tour date of the two-time Grammy Award-winning Old Crow Medicine Show. Not even a severed artery on his finger could stop frontman Richie Prynne – he delayed surgery to lead the six-piece on the audacious escapade.
