Man the Lifeboats

Loading Events

Presented by Rotary Rocks (Rotary Club of Aylesbury Hundreds)

Man the Lifeboats first played the Limelight in 2019 – a memorable Rotary Rocks charity fundraiser gig. Four years on the band has gone from strength to strength – full throttle alternative folk, and playing original material.

Man The Lifeboats began life in a shanty-punk folk moshpit one night in 2016 when Skinny Lister and Holy Moly & the Crackers lit the fire. Fast forward seven years and 100 gigs and counting and Man The Lifeboats are an established band ploughing their furrow on the festival circuit, winning over audiences at Warwick, Swanage, Beardy Folk, Folk in a Field, Bearded Theory, Deepdale, Ragged Bear and more, drawing comparisons to Bellowhead, Waterboys, Oysterband, the Levellers, and those folk-punk heroes the Pogues.

Their second album Soul Of Albion hit number 27 in the Official Folk Charts in 2022. Recorded at Rockfield Studios, it sounds like Led Zeppelin arm-wrestling Shane McGowan in a Birmingham brewery, like Jimbob and Fruitbat fronting Fairport Convention, like The Albion Band turned up to 11 with their fiddles on fire.

Expect a musical cocktail of high-octane swirling punk-folk and dark rumination. Tonic for these troubled times.

All proceeds from this event to Buckinghamshire Mind.
