Under One Sun

Incredible String Band

In the 60s the ISB the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and many others drew inspiration from the ISB's eclectic and original music, and the band played at the famed Woodstock Festival.

Arguably the ISB were one of the first bands experimenting in 'World Music'. The current set includes instruments such as the Indian Israj, African Djembe, Turkish Dumbek and Indian Harmonium alongside the Banjo, Fiddle, Electric Violin, Acoustic Guitars, Mandolin, Keyboards, and a variety of Woodwind Instruments as well as the Human Voice.

Since reforming about 5 years ago founder members Clive Palmer and Mike Heron have been joined by Welsh keyboard wizard Lawson Dando and multi-instrumentalist Fluff and have impressed audiences across the UK and Europe. They certainly did this with the packed audience at Oake Village Hall, where they performed a selection of numbers, mainly from the early days of the band.
