10 mins., HD


Bo Weavil are a musical group from the North-West of England. Formed in 2011 and playing an evolving brew of folk, blues, country and bluegrass, they unashamedly play to the crowd with an entertaining mix of upbeat folk medleys, steady ballads and mournful blues, peppered all the way with plentiful three-part harmony singing and an emphasis on authoritative fiddle melodies. Since forming a little while ago, they have been playing a variety of pubs, clubs and festivals throughout the North of England.

Bo Weavil is made up of… Dom Dudill on fiddle, Dave Layton on drums, Lee Webster on banjo/dobro, Mark Ross on guitar & Tommy “The Musical” Rushton on bass. After many, many evenings since spent drinking tea and heatedly debating compositions, chord structures and choruses, what was once a band of strangers has quickly developed into a bunch of passionate and close musical compatriots. They are always looking for a new twist on an old tune and always looking forward to their next gig… and they will do their best to surprise and delight you with what they have been coming up with.
