Wille and the Bandits will mix award winning musicianship with intoxicating songs when they visit Falmouth to debut a brand new,surf themed, music and video project on October 27.

The band will join three times British surf champion Alan Stokes to launch an exciting new webisode series following their quest to create a new video and track for the ultimate live performance.

Alan and Wille had aimed to write and record a new song as the soundtrack to footage of Alan surfing, which will be played live alongside the worldwide premier of the film at the Princess Pavilion.

During live shows, each Bandit can be seen at points playing different instruments simultaneously, some of which, such as the tongue drum, mohan veena and djembe, are rarely seen in western music and almost never on the blues rock scene.

The lyrics of many of Wille Edwards’ songs delve deep: some lead audiences through a journey of self realisation, others paint a picture that unashamedly draws on global issues such as climate change and immigration for inspiration, but in a package which doesn’t sound pretentious, forced or preachy. The band can rock out with the best, as tours with Deep Purple have proven, yet, the softer side of their music has almost poetic, anthemic qualities which draw comparisons with Bob Dylan and Ben Harper.

The bands’ strength as genre crossing musicians has seen them play rock, folk, blues and jazz festivals globally.

Fans of bands from Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd to Pearl Jam and John Butler Trio should check this show out.

Wille and the Bandits and Alan Howe will premiere Fins and Strings at the Princess Pavilion on Friday, October 27, from 8pm.
