5-piece traditional folk and blues act from Lancashire, Bo Weavil showcase old time and country blues from the 1920s and 30s, creating good times from happy hoedown to folk festivals. Described by Band on the Wall as 'a positive string orchestra with melodica and harmonica thrown in for good measure', they are pure foot-stomping excellence with a kick!
