Original, entertaining and thought provoking, the Rubber Wellies are a travelling folk outfit like few others. Based in the Basque Country, Ireland and Britain they are a touring collective skippered by singersongwriter Harry Bird, multi-instrumentalist Christophe Capewell and fiddler/vocalist Kitty Theodore. With three albums under their belts and ten years of experience together on the road they have entertained audiences all over Europe and beyond in the manner of the musical troupes of old. Their musical style is an international mash-up of sea shanties, mexican rancheras, bossa nova, reggae, old time and swing with a love of feel-good fun. Drawing on narratives from curious everyday occurrences, global politics and folk legends, the Rubber Wellies multi-lingual performances are a mix of musical story-telling and good-time sing-alongs that flip between poignant introspection and carefree raucousness.


"One of my favourite bands of recent years" - The Mike Harding Folk Show
“Try and listen to The Rubber Wellies and be anything but happy, it's impossible!” - BBC Radio Sheffield
"a big draw on the live circuit with their likeable good-time roots- flavoured folk" – fRoots
“An album that consistently surprises and is folk music as artefact, not industry...simply magnificant” - Sean McGhee, editor R2
