Under the Wychwood are a young up and coming band with the average age of about 55½ and play an eclectic mix of Folk, Americana and Acoustic Blues
Mark Pidgeon (Guitar & Vocals), Rod Craig (Mandolin) & Mat Davies (Bass), all come together when there’s a full moon and do strange things in and around the woods of West Oxfordshire. Mostly musical although it has been said they sometimes sit around drinking tea.
Devilry themes seems to features a lot in their material, hmmm we wonder why?
Coming together on these moonlit nights, when werewolves are heard howling at nothing in particular and Owls take refuge in the tallest of trees, often causes the stirrings of musical passion within each and every one of them.
It is said they are fond of Hobgoblin although no one has been able to witness this and live to tell the tale………………………………
What a fantastic band! Mark's original numbers are just as good as the famous songs they cover, and the whole group was enthusiastic, talented and entertaining. A real pleasure to spend an evening with them. – Frances Maksinski, Manor Farm Music Frivolities
“Under the Wychwood never fail to entertain. On their second visit to Evesham Arts Centre they delivered an energetic set ranging from their own compelling material and covers taking a receptive audience through folk and Americana. A thoroughly enjoyable evening. There’s something for everyone in their music; genre busting delivered by three very talented musicians.” – Armandaleg Music
