Introducing...Three Sheers T'Wind

YMC: Tell us something about the band, how did you meet, how long have you been playing together?

I met Liam (Drums) and Rik (Mandolin) on nights out in Pontefract about 5-6 years ago we formed soon after. Sam (Accordion) is younger than us so we met him when he was 17 on a night out and Pat (Bass) our new recruit, we met in Wakefield at an open mic night.

YMC: Do you have any recorded material, where is it available?

We have an EP and an album, both can be bought at our gigs very cheap and we can post out!

YMC: Do you write your songs together?

I normally write the music and lyrics but for around half of our songs it is a joined effort on lyrics. Though a few new lyrics for the next record are written by Pat, so a new direction lyrics wise.

YMC: What can people expect from your live show?

Our shows tend to be fast, energetic and very engaging with the audience. If anyone in the audience wants to interact were more than happy to start a conversation or debate!

YMC: Who are your main influnces?

Without mentioning other band names were mainly influenced by 70's and 80's English punk and traditional music whether it be English, Irish, Turkish etc...

YMC: Which are your favourite venues?

Definately a festival in Somerset we play every year, always great fun and people but we like intimate pubs with ale mostly!

YMC: What are your plans for the near future?

New record next year which should get distributed by Geekpie records and a bit of a tour!
