LIVE MUSIC – “DodoBones”

“We play songs. Some are ours. Some are other peoples”.

Finally, we’ve managed to arrange the return of DodoBones – back at The Plough Shepreth for the first time this year, bringing their unique mix of originals and own-style pastiche pop covers to The Mandolin Stage. DodoBones hatched in early 2009 and since then they’ve been attracting attention with raw and heartfelt lyrics, seducing vocals, and the pulsing and gritty sound of acoustic guitar, double bass and percussion. Although they are now renowned for their combination of natural acoustic instruments and powerhouse performances of original songs, they have also attracted attention with their ironic pop, pastiche style when interpreting other people’s well-known numbers. DodoBones are: Robbyn Snow on lead vocals, Stephen Patmore on guitar and spoken word, Ian Newman on double bass, and Mark Gordon on percussion.

Monday 23rd December 2019 – 6:30pm – MANDOLIN STAGE – Free Entry
