Oyster Band

Groups and Performers 

Starting life as the Oyster Ceilidh Band and their 'other band', Fiddler's Dram, now simply Oysterband. One of the best known and longest lived English Electric Folk Bands.

Most of the group met as students at the University of Kent and played local folk clubs. A particular club where some became resident was at Whitstable (The Duke) - hence the Oyster connection.
