SOLD OUT! The Black Tar Rivers: Levelling The Tarn

The Black Tar Rivers are an 8-piece Levellers tribute band featuring members of four separate bands; The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican, The Sweetchunks Band, Treebeard and Blackthorn.

They played what was meant to be their first and only show at the Bostin' Days 2 Festival, as 'The Black Tar Rivers

Boozy Big Band'. During this special 'one-off' performance, in which they played all of the seminal 'Levelling The Land' album, the band were joined by a bunch of guest musicians from the UK's alternative music festival scene. They returned in 2017 at Farmer Phil's Festival in Shropshire, minus the guest performers, simply as 'The Black Tar Rivers'.

The band is very-much a side-project of all of the members of the band, but reforming for a maximum of once a year allows The Black Tar Rivers to bring the very best songs from Brighton's most loved punk-folk band to the small stage.

They are supported by Southampton's steam-punk acoustic comedy nutters The Sweetchunks Band, and Barnsley's own answer to the Barron Knights, The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican.
