On May 18, the Eden Café in St Austell will be hosting an evening full of live music, with Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies, supported by The Freedom/Guilt Equation.

Harry Bird and his band the Rubber Wellies create an intimate cabaret atmosphere with their acoustic performances, where anything goes, from joyful sing-alongs to outlandish antics.

The group met while attending university in the UK, but are now based on the continent and have built up a strong fan base playing festivals, cabarets, pubs, cafes and even churches.

Their debut album Long Way to be Free, released in 2009, was created in five months in five different continents, while their second album Bones on Black was mostly recorded live over ten days in the front room of a big old house in Lincoln. They are currently working on a third release.

The Freedom/Guilt Equation will keep the acoustic theme going with a set that explores the depth of human emotions, from guilt to freedom and everything in-between.

The group uses creativity to express emotions and by making music, they hope to encourage others to do the same. Together they have found a sound that draws the audience in and makes them feel part of the performance.

Di Armstrong, Eden Café Manager said: “We are really pleased to welcome such talented acts back to the Eden Café. With their diverse styles, this evening of live music has a bit of something for everyone.”

Tickets to the gig cost £4 if bought in advance and for concessions, or £5 on the door.

The café will be open from 7:30pm, where a selection of locally sourced food and drinks will be available.
