Put on yer finest knitted gladrags, style your barnet, put on your dancing shoes and bring your finest singing voices, as we cordially invite you to witness the Greatest Show On Earth (in tank-tops).

Hailing from Barnsley Rock City in t’North, The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican are on a mission! Determined to follow in their spiritual father’s immortal footsteps and keep his legacy alive, they have a talent for reinventing other famous people’s songs with new comedy lyrics, on acoustic geetar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, accordion, keyboard and the world’s first synthesizer ukulele. To complete their squeaky-clean image, brothers-from-other-mothers Scott, Björn and Alan have become instantly recognisable for their immaculate hair and their stylish choice of knitwear.

A band that is both perpetually on the move and joyously independent, since forming in 2006, they have played over 1200 side-splitting shows to date, and have brought smiles and belly-laughs to audiences across the UK; from Barnsley to Barnstaple, from Glastonbury to Glasgow.

They continue to wow audiences with a fine selection of their greatest hits, including the likes of ‘Jump Ararnd’, ‘The Lady In Greggs’, ‘Too Good To Be Jus’, ‘How Deep Is Your Glove?’, ‘Nandos’, ‘Paint ’em Back’ and ‘Walking In Manpiss’. The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican can’t wait to bring their shindig to Lindisfarne Festival and they promise that they WILL rock you… but gently!
