There will be a traditional session from 8pm run by JLB fiddler @[1622040013:2048:Alastair Caplin] and his crew of wonderful trad musicians - followed by a huge two 45 mins sets by the band! The John Langan Band are a dynamic trio, with a sound that is rooted in Celtic Folk but encompasses Balkan, Roma, Gypsy Swing and Flamenco. The band met in Glasgow and has been playing together for 7 years. Their performances are high energy, unhinged, and musically extravagant, as they take traditional acoustic idioms and deliver them with a punk abandonment and virtuosic flare. Having played over 100 gigs in the past year alone, the band have now established themselves across the UK as being one of the best live Folk bands around.

****TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR**** Woodburner are proud to present: @[85794560571:274:The John Langan Band] Firm Woodburner favourites and the most reliable party-starters ever; we love The John Langan Band with a deep passion. They take treasures from Celtic folk and Balkan music and turn them into the most ferocious dance party you can possibly imagine! In their own words: High energy, unhinged, and musically extravagant, taking traditional acoustic idioms and delivering with punk abandonment and virtuosic flare. A dynamic three piece offering a unique sound emerging from Celtic, Gypsy Swing, Roma and Flamenco and tuned in savvy. Wrapping pan European traditional acoustic music with infectious grooves, epic, pounding, sing along, punch the air anthems to intricately arranged instrumentals. Challenging the limitations of what people might expect acoustic instruments to sound like, the use of bowed harmonics between fiddle and bass can be as menacing and eerie as it can be psychedelic and mesmerising. Percussion provided by the front man Langan, whilst singing and driving the rythm guitar, he somehow co-ordinates the operating of a cajon and a tambourine with his feet bringing the driving, swinging groove of the rhythm guitar together with his foot percussion resulting in an impressively tight band sound with a tempo that is free to go anywhere. Add scorching hot fiddle lines and a guy thumping the groove out a double bass. If you’re not dancing like a professional ostrich you get a refund. SUPPORT is provided on the night by close pals Gwennie and the Old Accord Hailing from deep in the Highlands, Gwennie has connected with musical communities all over the UK and indeed the world. With sweet guitar picking, heavy accordion grooves and her own unique songwriting sensibility, when she combines with her band The Old Accord it's a show to remember with luscious backing vocals and a truly uplifting vibe. Tickets are £8 advance, £12 on the door Times Live music must end at 11pm. 7pm Doors 815pm Gwendolen Chatfield and the Old Accord 930pm The John Langan Band DJ's until 12am

It seems only yesterday that we were dandling 2014 on our knee, taking it to the soft play centre and reading it bedtime stories; yet here it is now: doddery, flatulent and forgetting what it came into the room for. Come and help it go gently into that good night at our NEW YEAR’S EVE MASQUERADE BALL ON THE CABARET STAGE RUBYYY JONES, our compère beyond compare, will introduce a singing and flinging, strutting and stripping, shocking and schlocking line-up of side show, drag, erotica and burlesque nouveau, including: RUBYYY JONES – the queen of queerlesque, neo-burlesque beauty, sex education performer and force of nature. RUBY WEDNESDAY – Star of reality show “Drag Queens of London”: maniacal, misanthropic, Wednesday’s child is truly full of woe. SCARLETT O’HORA – Scandalous and infamous burlesque belle, flapper and tap-dancing temptress. PEARL GREY – Farthingale fetishist & winner of Burlesque Idol 2014 with her bondage homage to Blackadder’s Queenie. HANNAH LOU – one of London’s sexiest freaks, saucy side show girl with bite and burn. IN THE GRAND BALLROOM Our waltzmeister TROYLUS SEARLL will waft you down the Blue Danube to imperial Vienna, whirl you round the Riesenrad ferris wheel and then whisk you to the Hofburg ballroom, conjuring up the elegance and grandeur of the traditional New Year’s celebrations at the Habsburg court with a selection of his waltzes, polkas and gallops. And, after the Viennese, who knows better how to see in the New Year than the Scots? So from Glasgow, following their headline performance at Shakespeare’s Globe, will come the maverick minstrels of the JOHN LANGAN BAND, who will bring All the World to our Stage with their high-energy scotchpotch of Celtic, Balkan, Gypsy, Flamenco and Jamaican folk funk: Jacques Brel and Irvine Welsh scrapping over whose round it is to a klezmer beat. As 2015 lies gurgling softly to itself LOUISE XIV - the Sun Queen of the Bourbon biscuit dynasty - will take to the decks and stir up the dance floor will a regular royal concoction of Guilty Pleasures. THE MIDNIGHT BALLOON DROP THE TRAVELLING MENAGERIE In many ancient cultures the skin-shedding snake was the symbol of change and rebirth. So what more appropriate animal could there be for you to stroke for good luck as we ring in the New Year? And what better place to find one than in TIM MAYNARD's itinerant reptilian menagerie, along with scorpions, lizards and tarantulas? RING OUT THE OLD Pay your last respects to 2014 in our life drawing room as ART MACABRE and their cast of mourners stage a pagan funeral for the Old Year. Then on the stroke of midnight, dry your tears and wet your nibs as the scene transmogrifies into a Gaelic birthing ritual to welcome the arrival of 2015. THE GREAT GAME As the inexorable transition from one year to another reminds us, we are but flotsam and jetsam on the roaring torrent of time. So take your place on our HUMAN CHESS BOARD as pawn, knight or bishop and surrender your Will and your Fate to our Golden Game Players, who will despatch you to death or glory in a Ruy Lopez, fianchetto or Queen's Gambit Declined.

"If you go down to the woods today, You're sure of a big surprise. If you go down to the woods today, You'd better go in disguise…" Creatures big and small, from badgers to wood nymphs and from field mice to owls have all gathered under the old oak tree for the woodland's biggest social event of the year. A troupe of passing musicians have set up camp and are ready to set the tree tops a'shaking! Line up so far: *** THE JOHN LANGAN BAND *** *** SEAS OF MIRTH *** *** KAPTIN IS DEAD *** The John Langan Band This high energy, unhinged and extravagant trio deliver traditional acoustic idioms with punk abandonment and virtuosic flare. A dynamic three-piece offering a unique sound emerging from Celtic, Gypsy Swing, Roma and Flamenco. www.thejohnlanganband.com/ Seas of Mirth Combining hilarious live shows with pounding dance music, Seas of Mirth are a party band unlike any other. Alongside high-speed gypsy beats, a thrashy folk influence and some majestic bellowing, they even manage to throw in a bit of old-school hip-hop for good measure. They holler nautical folk tales, punishment chants, misfortunate love ballads and musical yarns, all concerning mythical sea beasts. seasofmirth.com/ Kaptin is Dead Renegade Sheriff and Music Programmer for Boomtown Fair festival, Kaptin has his finger on the trigger, with exclusive access to tunes that make the knees quiver. Shaking the grounds of the Jolly Dodger and The Old Mines stages at Boomtown this year, he's no stranger to the bands we have in store for the evening and is set to deliver some fine gypsy bangers for all. As always there's fancy dress prizes to be won, so preen those pelts, perk up your ears and get ready to shake your tail feathers.
