International Talk Like A Pirate Day
Free Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter
Septmebr the 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate Day and we at ye mighty ship Telford’s are not one to miss such momentous occasions and have taken the whole idea very seriously. Last year we saw Mark Radcliffe and his band perform to a full ship of pirateers, wenches & lads & lass’s dressed in full seafaring regalia. This year we expect even more and have press ganged The Wee Bag Band into putting on a show of traditional shanties and ceilidh jigs.
Live Music From
The Wee Bag Band
The Wee Bag Band consist of 5 musicians Paul Bassom, Rory McGough, Steve Owen, Julian Anderson & Alan Colinson. From time to time they have the odd (sometimes very odd) musician join them.
Paul & Rory met in back in 1993 and as both of them have a keen interest in music they soon hit it off. Problem was that at that time Rory was based in Denbigh while Paul was based in London. In 1998 Paul moved up to Denbigh allowing them more time to develop their musical style. Since 2001 they have been playing in pubs & clubs in and around North Wales. Wanting to create a more dynamic sound Alan joined in 2003.
With the introduction of Jim the Flute early in 2007 followed by Jules the Fiddle later that year and more recently Steve the bass the band were often seen out & about as a 5 & 6 piece and capable of delivering the unique energetic sound called Irish Music
Oh.! and the name…….? Well lets just say we were under the influence of something a tad iffy when we came up with that one and were stuck with it now
