Blackbeard’s Tea Party will be promoting their latest album Kick The Curb when they appear at the West End Centre in Aldershot on December 16 at 8pm.

In early 2020 two founder members left the band and lockdown halted all their gigs, rehearsals and plans to write a new album.

But instead of quitting after more than ten years of gigging and recording, they recruited a new bassist and guitarist and began writing new music.

Each member worked in isolation and they used digital technology to stitch the parts together. Most of the 12 lean and finely-honed tracks, instilled with a new creative energy, were composed before the revised line-up met.
