Critically acclaimed acoustic trio Whalebone are bringing their 2013 tour to Oulton Village Hall on Saturday 8th June.

Whalebone’s Runes tour features high energy acoustic music alongside haunting atmospheric tunes. The show includes inventive interpretations of traditional music, rock classics and original material from their award winning album ‘Three Fires’ and their forthcoming album ‘Runes’, along with tall tales, folklore and the myths which inspired the music.

“This tour will also feature a very rare baritone eight-string guitar” says Whalebone frontman Steve Downs. “There are only a handful of these in the world, and it’s possible we’re playing the only one in the UK. The show will include music we’ve written especially to showcase its beautiful and unusual qualities”.

The evening should be a treat for guitar-lovers. Steve, who will be playing the rare eight-string guitar for part of the night, has been praised by Melody Maker for his “great lead guitar work”.

There are still some seats left at £7.50 (£4.00 for children) and are available by calling 01785 817895 or 07851 302860 or online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/whalebone. For more information please see www.whalebone-music.com, or follow Whalebone on Facebook or Twitter.
