A rootsy rockin' psychedelica, the Slambovian Circus of Dreams has been expanding the borders of the Americana genre with their fantastic stories and performance since forming Sleepy Hollow, New York.
The band are playing at both Cropredy and Wickham Festivals as part of their UK summer tour and we are delighted that the band has chosen to return to the mill in support of their just-released new album, A Very Unusual Head.
Their connection with audiences taps into a greater human-ness and captivates. Joined onstage by bandmates Tink Lloyd (accordion, cello, mandolin, flute) and the guitar-slinging skills of Sharkey McEwen, the Slambovians create a show that is constantly evolving "with a little help from their friends". 2022's line-up includes RJ MacCarthaigh (bass, keys, sax), and Matthew Abourezk (drums).
Elements of Dylan, Bowie, Incredible String Band, Syd Barrett, and The Waterboys flavour the musical mix (Waterboys founding member Anthony Thistlethwaite appears on the new album). Add a good dose of Woodstock-era psychedelia framed in solid songwriting, and you have it.
