The Wurzels.


A Somerset-born Scrumpy and Western band will return home this month.

Music legends, The Wurzels, will bring their cider-infused lyrics to celebrate everyday life in the West Country.

The group continue to sell out shows around the country since releasing their debut EP in 1967, with their West Country cover of Kaiser Chiefs’ Ruby becoming a fan favourite, as well as the hilarious hip hop version of their hit Combine Harvester.

The bunch have paved the way for Scrumpy and Western genre and created anthems for Bristol City – One For The Bristol City – and Somerset County Cricket Club – Blackbird.

The band’s new single is the story of the infamous 1921 Aveling and porter steam roller Old Rosie

The Wurzels will be at Cheese & Grain, in Market Yard in Frome, at 8pm on March 30.

Tickets, priced £17.50, are available at www.cheese and 01373 455420.
