Peel Your Own Spuds are the new faces on the Folk/Celtic scene in the UK. The band was formed in 2008, evolving out of the large Irish community in Newport, South Wales. Over the last year the band has performed throughout the UK at festivals, rugby grounds, universities and niche venues. They have gained admiration from many and have attracted a large following of very loyal supporters. The band has been aired regularly on BBC and Local Radio, featured on ITV television and appeared in National and International newspapers.
The original songs are written by band founder, Tom Flannelly, and delivered by a talented set of musicians - Rosie, Jane, Scot, Mick, Keith and Tom. The instruments played in the band include accordion, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo, tin whistle, bass, drums and bodhran. Influences include The Pogues, Saw Doctors and Christy Moore, along with traditional Irish tunes. Peel Your Own Spuds' original material spans many subjects, including emigration, social problems and the "demon drink"! The effect that the band has on the audience is magical. The atmosphere during a Spuds gig is indeed uplifting. Inhibitions are left behind; the music has a euphoric effect on many, enticing them from the dark corners of the auditorium to be closer to the source of excitement and atmosphere - great craic!
