Gadabout #6: Big Eyes Family Players

A loose collective based around Sheffield artist James Green. It’s been three years since the last Big Eyes album (‘Folk Songs II’ on Static Caravan) and a whole six years since they released an album of original material (not including 2011’s superb reworked best-of, ’Family Favourites’).

The group, who have previously collaborated with the likes of James Yorkston, Alasdair Roberts and Rachel Grimes, are now a slimmed-down 5-piece with a sound that veers closer towards the 60’s psychedelic pop of the likes of United States of America and Broadcast than it does to the instrumentals or folk songs Big Eyes are perhaps best known for.

This event is a fundraiser for Peace in the Park 2016.
