The Ouse Valley Singles Club
Back by popular demand for their third year at Woodlands, we are happy to introduce The Ouse Valley Singles Club!
Heavily influenced by the sounds & traditions of 1950’s Skiffle (Google it) they combine this long forgotten genre with the energy of Punk, whilst occasionally dropping some Rub n Dub reggaesque urban flavours into the mix and then layering this with hilarious Folk-like story-telling, often crossing the parameters of what is deemed to be politically correct.
In doing this, they have created a truly original & highly entertaining sound that has been dubbed “New Wave Skiffle” and described as 'George Formby meets The Clash’ ‘Vaudeville/Music Hall meets Working Men’s club' They put on a show that gives a hysterical observational account of every day tales of woe with a razor sharp observational narrative whilst rocking the crowds with their infectious earworms at the same time.
The OVSC are no strangers to the Festival Circuit, having performed at Boomtown, Bestival, Rhythmtree, Nozstock, Mosley Folk , Lunar Festival, Truckfest, Rhythms of The World festival, Henry’s Little Big Gig, Harlequin Festival and Glastonbudget among many others.
