Street music is world music. Every culture worth its salt bursts outdoors on occasion into free expression when horns, pulsating percussion and vibrating strings beat the soles of our feet.
It is in the streets that civilization flows. When in the exquisite moment we dance and play together, the politics of prejudice, hate and killing can be no more. It is in the music that diversity is celebrated. With Ska, Salsa, Samba, Calypso, Township, Gypsy and, and..the whole world is a kaleidescope of sound that draws together all races, ages and musicians.
BLAST Furness, the 20 strong and 20 year old street band of the ancient town of Ulverston in South Cumbria, demonstrates freedom with joyous musical reverberations at festivals, weddings, markets, gatherings and parades.
BLAST Furness are now taking bookings for this season. Please contact us if you would like us to play at your event !
