Show Description

The Settlers present a full two hour concert or Cabaret programme to suit the occasion. The show is part unashamed nostalgia from the Pop / Folk era of the 60's and 70's , part tunes from the 80's including well loved songs by artists such as James Taylor and John Denver and part self-penned material in a modern Pop / Folk style. The Settlers recreate the intricate vocal harmony and acoustic sound they were famous for. The stage show is very much a full audience experience presented with humour and participation.

Biography

The group became known as the Settlers after their first single, "Settle Down" in the 60's

The Settlers - Acoustic Band - Peterborough, East of England Event Location: Stamford Arts Centre - Lincolnshire 23rd November 2018
The Settlers played Stamford Arts Centre on Friday night. They finished off their great set with their biggest hit 'The Lightning Tree' inviting me to make the rather crass point about lightning striking twice. But it actually has. Their reinvention is a triumph. Their set was a mixture of pop/folk hits American and English folk. They sound great. Patty’s beautiful English folk voice sounds wonderful, coupled with their nicely crafted harmonies, sounds more contemporary given the upsurge of folk. Not only does their musicality impress on stage but so do their personalities. Easy relaxed...a bit of banter amongst themselves and with the audience . The crowd at the Stamford Arts Centre got their monies worth.The Settlers of all the pop folk bands back in the day... have survived and are better than ever. If there has ever been a song better named than the lightning tree or at least the word lightning to describe the re emergence of this folk pop phenomena I cant think of one.
