The Wurzels


A legendary West Country band who topped the charts in the 1970s are certain to entertain in Bridgwater this month.

Somerset stars The Wurzels will perform at Sydenham Barn, in Little Sydenham Farm, on May 20 at 7pm.

The Wurzels are famous for their cider-infused lyrics which champion everyday life in the West Country.

They achieved mainstream success in 1976 with chart-topping single Combine Harvester, which sat at the top of the charts for two weeks.

The band, which brands its music as scrumpy and Western, backed that up with number-three hit I Am A Cider Drinker just weeks later – and The Wurzels have been playing sell-out Somerset shows since.

The Wurzels are renowned for their live performances which get everyone in attendance singing along.

Tickets for this show, priced £20, are available from 07935 120026 or online via
