STRAWBERRY FAERIES PRESENT THE 6th BENEFIT GIG FOR SCARECROW CORNER AT STRAWBERRY FAIR
P.A.I.N
The Blunders
The Skraelings

P.A.I.N
We are very pleased to be welcoming long time faves, P.A.I.N, to headline a benefit for Scarecrow Corner. They played on the SoundScape Solar Stage in Scarecow Corner a couple of years ago at the Fair.
Established in 1995, The Propaganda And Information Network (as P.A.I.N is officially named) was first put together from the ashes of two seminal free festival bands: A.O.S.3 and Radical Dance Faction. Brought together to carry on the same Anarcho-style rantings, but with a much harder, Punk Rock attitude to it (less toking and more drinking!) within the first 7 days of forming P.A.I.N managed to book up a 3 week tour, literally writing the set in soundchecks. The band went from strength to strength releasing their first live demo (Prison’s no Place for Punishment – a real collector’s item these days,) within their first month of existence. Well that was years ago. Since then P.A.I.N. have released 2 studio albums, 2 cd singles and a couple of live albums, and are currently working on a new studio album and a P.A.I.N. in Dub album. “Sharpen your cutlasses boys, there’s a mighty stormy sea ahead!!”

THE BLUNDERS
We welcome The Blunders back to Cambridge after a fantastic benefit gig last year and a storming set at this year’s Fair.
Loud, full on and in your face no-holds-barred post punk at its best – that’s The Blunders. This band take no prisoners and are getting recognition for their live gigs and on the festival circuit. Tight and danceable with biting social commentary and savage humour from this West Country 3-piece.
They have 2 albums out and are currently working on a third.

THE SKRAELINGS
Another long time fave of Scarecrow Corner, we are always very happy to welcome The Skraelings to Cambridge. They have played for us many times before, both at benefit gigs and at The Fair.
A 5-piece Essex-based band of noise deliverers, with roots in the 70s punk explosion.
Established in 1990, they blazed a three year trail across the stages of squatted parties and free festivals before summoning themselves into the timely now.
Their ‘Good Medicine’ EP is produced by Rat Scabies and Bob Earland. And they are currently working on new material.

Rory McLeod and The Brewer’s Daughter
May 19 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

*This is a rescheduled date from 19th May 2021, tickets already purchased for the previous date are valid for this one*
STRAWBERRY FAERIES PRESENT A BENEFIT GIG FOR SCARECROW CORNER AT STRAWBERRY FAIR

Rory may be known to older Fair goers and we are very happy to welcome him back for this benefit gig.

Rory McLeod – ex-circus clown and fire eater. A rhythmic storyteller, multi-instrumentalist, singing unpalatable truths about broken hearts or social injustice in bold, lyrical and deeply personal songs. A one-man-soul-band, and poet, he has a natural troubadour’s talent for weaving magical, musical, storytelling spells accompanied by his own bizarre solo orchestra of distinctive instruments – the spoons, finger-cymbals, bandorea, Djembe-drum, harmonica, guitar, trombone and-tap-dancing shoes.

McLeod is a musical Gypsy, his eccentric melodies are infused with influences from Flamenco to blues, through to Celtic, East European and Calypso rhythms creating a style of music and songwriting that has been described as “Intimate, revealing, political and powerful.”

Rory has played harmonica and guitar with many acclaimed performers including MICHELLE SHOCKED, ANI DI FRANCO, BUTCH HANCOCK, MICHAEL FRANTI, TOWNES VAN ZANDT, with the West-African guitarist ALI FARKE-TOURE and TAJ MAHAL; and Madagascan group TARIKA. He has also written songs for TV and radio and has released 9 self-produced albums.

THE BREWER’S DAUGHTER
The Brewer’s Daughter is Northampton narrow -boat based chanteuse extraordinaire, Rhianon Crutchley. She delivers a perfectly balanced brew of traditional and original folk music, featuring gutsy vocals with an antique fiddle and a vintage 12-string guitar. Rhiannon also plays in Tarantism and AOS3. One of Scarecrow Corner’s firm favourites.
She released her first album, ‘Make Believe’ in June, 2016.
