Tenacity and Routes Music Management are absolutely delighted to confirm that, following their highly successful UK tour in the Summer of 2019, New York City based band The Slambovian Circus of Dreams have been invited to perform at the legendary International Fairport’s Cropredy Convention 2020. Part of the US bands’ UK tour will be helping celebrate Fairport’s 50th year in a kaleidoscope of stunning music from 13-15 August 2020 in the Oxfordshire countryside!
Starting off as the almost heavy metal Ancestors in the 90’s the band have taken all that is good in folk, country and Americana with a twist of Pink Floyd flavouring. The Slambovians have melded their own unique sound that is at once familiar yet almost impossible to pigeonhole. The Slambovian Circus of Dreams have such an eclectic live stage presence that once seen, always hooked. Rubbing regular shoulders with some of the icons of American music the band have got some serious endorsees. Garth Hudson of The Band is a committed Slambovian disciple and fan describing frontman Joziah Longo as “An awesome songwriter”. Writers have quoted lyrical similarities to both Dylan and John Prine. A close listen to their many albums and well attended live shows would bear out that comparison.
Gary Lucas, outstanding guitarist with Jeff Buckley and early member of Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band is quoted saying "It was an honor and a privilege to play with the great psychedelic band The Slambovian Circus of Dreams".

The New York Times says… “They Take The Stage By Storm”.
And so they do; so they will Cropredy!
