Singer-songwriter Harry Bird and multi-instrumentalist Christophe Capewell have spent the last eight years entertaining audiences in all manner of places and in all kinds of weather. With over 500 gigs and three albums under their belts, the Rubber Wellies have shortened their name but not their sense of adventure!
The travelling pair, often accompanied by a musical mash-up of welly friends and family, have performed all over Europe and beyond in fiestas, festivals, bars and boats, folk clubs, front-rooms, cafés and caves alike. With over 500 gigs and three albums under their belts, they’ve shortened their name but not their sense of adventure!
Formally known as Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies, their shifting line-up now sees them perform as an intimate duo, a stomping seven-piece or anything in between. Regulars on tour in recent years include: Ian “Dodge” Paterson (all kinds of bass), Jamie Bird (banjo, mandolin), Kate Theodore (fiddle), Adam Downey (percussion) and Heather St John (vocals).
