phat bollard – 2SS #6
We were very happy to have had the super alternative Phat Bollard over to Bahrain for one of our 2 Seas Sessions.
Phat Bollard are a travelling Cornish busking band. Hailing from Cornwall, England, they survive by busking the streets, touring the UK and living out of their van. Generally a five piece unit featuring two guitars, mandolin, washtub bass and percussion, they raise a ruckus with joyful noise and highly nuanced songs that deal with some of today’s most important issues.
They travel around the country playing in different towns and cities as they go. They sometimes take bookings for festivals, gigs and private functions if they like the sound of them and it seems 2Seas Sessions was something they liked the sound of. They shot into the public eye in may 2015 when a video of them busjing ended up on the BBC and they haven’t looked back since gathering quite a following around the world.
