Welcome to Oysterband's official website...
Very pleased to announce we'll be doing TØNDER FESTIVAL in Denmark again this year. That makes August a notable month: we'll be playing Cambridge Folk Festival's 50th anniversary on the 3rd, Sidmouth Folk Week's 60th anniversary 6th - 8th, and Tønder Festival's 40th anniversary 28th-31st.
How about that?!
We're honoured to be part of the Big Birthdays of these great institutions of the folk music world. It's been a long story! (Thinks: we really must get round to writing the book one day...)
The new Oysterband studio album Diamonds On The Water is now out. It's our first collection of entirely new material in (gulp!) 7 years.
Naturally CDs are available from our website shop as well as from Navigator Records www.navigatorrecords.co.uk/artists/oysterband and your usual retail outlets. Buy early, buy often!
Note the limited autographed edition is now sold out.
Downloads are available at https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/diamonds-on-the-water/id771969865?uo=4&at=10l9qC (whole album only). And you can view the CD booklet and digipak images here.
"From beginning to end, Diamonds On The Water is quite, quite brilliant." Folk Radio
"You know this will become one of the Oysters' best-loved albums..." fRoots
"Gefühlvoll und äußerst melodiös" Musikansich.de
"...unglaublich eindrucksvoll und schön." Legacy
""Revamped and revitalised Oysterband produce their best CD in years...song-writing, playing and arranging out of the top drawer" Maverick ***** (5-stars)
- and who are we to disagree?
By the way, at one point recently Diamonds On The Water was #2 on the iTunes pre-order downloads chart. In Mongolia. (We are not making this up. Sad to say, though, it seems to have peaked there.)

THE OYSTERBAND PHONE APP
-- available free in Android and iPhone versions from the relevant App Stores, also via the button second down on the right on this page --
-- brought to you by the fine folks at ReverbNation, ever on the lookout for ways to help bands promote their music online.
It's a cunning little device, including songs, videos, reviews, contacts to buy tickets, gig-list, map, and more. It's designed to be easily copied, shared, posted and passed on, as you'll see if you hit the "Share" button below.
So you can put it on your own website or blog or social networking page and convert your friends to Oystermusic. When they say "What's the band like, then?" you now have a snappy answer!
And best of all, the widget is "live". So when we change the songs or add new live dates, that automatically updates every copy of the widget that has been posted anywhere else - how smart is that?
It's all in there - go on, have a play with it........
