Musical shape-shifters The Waterboys will be performing at Cambridge Corn Exchange on the back of their 11th album, Modern Blues, released in January.
Since their formation in the 80s, the band have explored a variety of styles, dipping into both folk and rock ‘n’ roll, and drawing on literary influences. While Mike Scott is credited with founding the group, over 70 musicians have performed on stage as part of The Waterboys. Current members are Mike Scott on vocals and lead guitar, Steve Wickham on electric fiddle and mandolin, Ralph Salmins on drums and Paul Brown on backing vocals and keys.
Modern Blues was recorded in Nashville and presents yet another new sound to add to their repertoire. They’re at the Corn Exchange on 26 November, 7.30pm; tickets £35.
