JANUARY 2014

Get ready. The Bear wakes up at the end of this month...

... And book if you want to be there. We all remember what happened last opening night! 


 

 “The best live band on the scene at the moment, and I wouldn’t say it unless
I genuinely thought it”  - Cerys Matthews // BBC6 Music

 

CC SMUGGLERS

FRIDAY 30 JANUARY

We are thrilled to wake up The Bear with this six piece extravaganza of rootsy fun. The natural born, ‘self-made’ showmen CC Smugglers have worked their way up from young street performers to playing some of the biggest festivals and venues in the UK and Europe. The band has become renowned for producing fresh and unafraid blends of old-time/world-folk styles & instrumentation; hitting home the unique and contemporary British songwriting with skill, charisma and passion.
