Scarecrow @ Tump Folk
Oct 13 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Guest night with ‘Scarecrow’ making a welcome return to the Tump. They have recently launched their latest cd, ‘Crow Road’.

Scarecrow emerged in 2006, formed by three members of a popular Oxfordshire barn dance band who shared a common desire to develop our collective breadth of musical styles, instruments and influences. The band brings together the classical music of Rey Lear, allied to folk tunes from David Moore with jazz and blues influences from Gordon Raitt. The resulting “Scarecrow Sound” reflects these diverse abilities and influences in both the repertoire and arrangements of well known and sometimes more obscure songs and tunes.
