International Talk Like A Pirate Day with The Wee Bag Band [+]


Now into its third year at Telford’s, International Talk Like A Pirate day is becoming somewhat of a tradition. This year we’ll embrace the swashbuckling, scallywags and their wenches in a camaraderie of drinking games, sword fights and treasure hunts. Batten down the hatches we’re goin’ to sea… Aaarrgggghhhhh!

Sea Shanty’ provided by The Wee Bag Band…

The Wee Bag Band 1

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
