The Black Guards
Saturday 18 November
Children go for £1* We want to encourage families to enjoy the live music experience together, so we are now offering tickets to under-17s for just £1 when booked with an adult paying full price (at selected gigs).
This autumn is shaping up to be one of our best ever live music line-ups, with local and touring acts taking to the Florence stage. One of the highlights of the season will be the return of one of our (and Cumbria's) best-loved folk/rock bands: The Black Guards.
With years of gigging and songwriting under their belts, this year saw the band step up a gear with a new name (formerly D' Bleedin' Blaggards), signing a deal with Cumbria's Folkstock Records and a modern contemporary folk-pop sound. With the release of the Drawn In EP (see the video for the title track, above) the band have cemented their reputation as one of the North-West's leading modern folk groups, with sold out shows across the county and beyond.
We are thrilled to have them back at FAC after too long a break and we'd urge you to book your tickets as early as you can - another sellout is a sure thing!
