The Olde Boston Tea Party played at the Ashley Wood Artspace on Saturday 27th April to a rapturous audience. The Artspace is run by Johnny Bull and Juliet Stallwood and is a top class musical venue with the added sophistication of Johnny’s delightful dry martinis.
We are delighted to welcome to the band yet another great musician, Johnny Butten. Johnny has been working in America for the last few years where he was officially appointed the Guinness Book of Records World’s Fastest Banjo Player (see picture).
Johnny is actually a virtuoso player of all the bluegrass instruments and it is an immense privilege to have him as a member of the band.
The Olde Boston Tea Party was warmly received at the Venus Transit Love Festival held at Walton, near Glastonbury on 5th June. Despite the wet weather, the festival spirit was undaunted, much like the Diamond Jubilee spirit throughout Britain, where everyone enjoyed themselves and made the most of it. At such times we can be proud to be British!
For the last three years The Olde Boston Tea Party has performed as a trio with David Hatfield (double bass & vocals), Jeremy Cozens (mandolin and vocals) and Charlie Boston (guitar, dobro & vocals). Now there is a fourth permanent member in Peter Orgill (fiddle and vocals). (more…)
