Since 2014, St Mary's Church, Black Bourton has played host to some fantastic musical talent from Russian vocalists and an Oxford-based folk group to Funk Jazz guitarists and Royal Air Force musicians. The aim of the concert series is to provide a diverse range of high quality music to the local community, taking advantage of the very special surroundings of our own small 12th Century church. In turn, we are able to contribute to the fund set up to restore the church roof so that we can preserve it for centuries to come for the benefit of our community and all of those that visit Black Bourton.
We are very lucky to have this exciting act appearing for 'Live @ Black Bourton'. Please see below some details from their website and click through to visit and enjoy some of their music ahead of the night!
About the band
Brickwork Lizards are Oxford purveyors of the finest Turkabilly gyp-hop mashup, since 2005.
We call it Turkabilly, as there’s no easy way of describing the music we play.
It combines Arab folk tunes, 1930s jazz, vaudeville, rap and hip hop. You might also hear elements of delta blues, mariachi or gypsy music. We’re equally at ease playing high-octane rock gigs and in more intimate acoustic settings.
Our music is fun but thought-provoking, pure but simple. Have a listen to some of our tunes to find out what we mean.
We reach out to people of all kinds, all ages, all creeds. We’re doing our own little bit to bridge the divide between eastern and western music. We are, ‘All that we are’.
