A night to celebrate three decades of music by The Ukrainians. Expect an exciting set with the best songs from thirty-plus years of performing Eastern Folk Punk.
Using their British-born Ukrainian roots, the band mix Eastern and Western culture – singing in Ukrainian, using Eastern ethnic instruments, but backed up with a Western rock rhythm.
The Ukrainians were formed in 1991, the year Ukraine regained its independence from the Soviet Union. Oi Divchino was the band’s first single, which became an NME Single of the Week, and the video was shot in Kyiv. It was the first pop video to be produced in the East for a Western band.
The first album, The Ukrainians, established the group as the world’s major exponent of a new hybrid of traditional Ukrainian folk and British Indie-rock music. The band subsequently played festivals and tours throughout Europe, including Glastonbury and WOMAD in the UK. In all, the band have released 8 albums and performed over 1,000 gigs and festivals worldwide.
Most recently, The Ukrainians have been involved in numerous benefit gigs to raise money to help refugees from this terrible war. There will be an opportunity to support refugees at the gig both financially, and by cheering on the artists who support on the night.
You can expect to hear songs from each of The Ukrainians’ albums, and this is sure to be an Eastern night to remember!
