WEDNESDAY 11TH APRIL 2018
The Rubber Wellies (Bilbao, Dublin, England) play their first gig ever in Geneva this coming Wednesday. Original, entertaining and thought provoking, the Rubber Wellies are a travelling folk outfit like few others. Based in the Basque Country, Ireland and the UK, they are a touring collective skippered by singer/songwriter Harry Bird, multi-instrumentalist Christophe Capewell and fiddler/vocalist Kitty Theodore.
With three albums under their belts and ten years of experience together on the road, they have entertained audiences all over Europe. Their musical style is an international mash-up of sea shanties, mexican rancheros, bossa nova, reggae, old time and swing.
