WELCOME TO THE BLACK WATER COUNTY

Through a fusion of folk instruments, punk energy and catchy pop melodies, Black Water County’s sing along choruses rile up audiences all over the UK and across Europe since their first headline tour in 2018. The five piece, 20 something group of friends from Bournemouth came together through their love of playing music live. They tell stories of relationships, the people they meet on the road and their own angsty experiences of growing up looking through the bottom of a pint glass.  

Fronted by Tim and Shannon’s spirited vocals, the band have kicked the party off at hundreds of festivals including Boomtown Fair, Beautiful Days and Camp Bestival and won a place on Fireball’s ‘Fuelling the Fire Tour’ in 2016 and 2018. 

After independently releasing debut album ‘Taking Chances’ in 2017 along with singles ‘One More Beer Won’t Hurt’, ‘Start Something New’, ‘The Painful Truth’ and ‘Under Skies of Black and Blue’ Black Water County have been focused on unrelenting gigging and writing the next album due for a 2020 release.

‘It was Black Water County who landed themselves a place on the stage with Flogging Molly in December. With help from a busload of Bournemouth lunatics wearing ‘Folk Shit Up’ T-shirts, the Emerald Isle-influenced six piece started the first moshpit of the evening and cemented themselves as the judges’ favourite for the south coast blowout.’ – Kerrang! Features

‘Their name is steadily starting to spread across the length and breadth of the UK and beyond. With a European Tour in the pipeline and a host of summer festivals ahead, the future is looking very bright for this talented young band.’ – Rock Regeneration 

‘High octane performance style and strong influences from Flogging Molly, The Rumjacks, The Dreadnoughts, The Pogues and the Levellers what is there to not like about Black Water County?’ – Gigsandbands

Gutted you've not been able to reschedule the Norwich date but on the plus side it means a London road trip 🙂

Any chance of doing a FireStation take two Another sell out would be sweet xx

I like the look of the picture with the face mask would make for a brilliant tour tshirt 🤟

Oh dear, no Palladium Bideford guys ☹️ need some jumpy music after the current state of affairs down in North Devon

Damn. We'd found out that we could park the Camper Van - legally- in the car park at Bideford about 150 meters from the Palladium. Oh well, trip to Dorchester it is, then.

Dorchester it is then xx🥰

Kept hold of my tickets for Nottingham!

Just got tickets for Dorch 😃

Double header levellers Friday night black water county Saturday night buzzing

There was ska man from Cyprus on earlier in fb he was great you need to check him out x

Set list should always evolve, but great to have Loch Lomond in your back pocket

Ffs 😭 one sec I'll be back I can work this out.x

I think a gig with BWC and Drunken Dolly on stage together would be fab 😊

This was bloody great! I love you all so much 💚 bye 😘

Absolutely brilliant haven't laughed some much since lockdown,

It's just a black screen with a loading circle, I can't even see your beautiful faces 🤷

We was at anvil, and what a way to enter lockdown, . That night was awesome, But I fear for Tim's mental health, someone please get him a drink

Missed you live sorry. Cheers Aaron, I can play bass ‘’tizzy’s only a note or two ‘innit? As long as it’s in G or A, or maybe I can stretch to E ......🎶🤪🎶

If Shan punches to her left it will look like she is punching Brad in the face. Just saying....

Could you possibly say hi to my mum, Mary, who was coming to see you at Wroot for her 76th birthday in April? She's now isolating. We'll make sure she sees it!

Why don't you play all the pubs in wimborne anymore it was a excellent song

Which band would you like to join if BWC wasn’t there and you could pick

Love the Pogues. My favourite band until I discovered BWC

If you had to take another band member’s role and were able to play their part who would you swap with?

I don’t how they do it but Dubioza Kolective’s Monday night streamaleays sound in sync

Is there a significant moment for the band? A moment that you knew you were all meant to play together or a particular performance?

How brilliant was memories for another life, was at joiner's in Southampton,

What was you inspiration for skies are black n blue, my kids love it,

What’s the weirdest thing you have done to entertain yourself during isolation? 😂

Love it when you guys gig with The Lagan. Always a top night!

Not a question More a statement, please record bonkers on a album, To stay on topic, Would you ever cover a oasis track if so what one

Do unemployed tour bus drivers still get 80% of their wage x

Did your van actually in Europe or did Guyer just forget to put fuel in? 🤦‍♂️

Much love guys, we don't have WiFi here so have to leave you!
