Since their reformation in 2004, the Bully Wee Band have had no trouble proving that they are still a force to be reckoned with as one of Britain’s foremost exponents of acoustic folk/rock music.

Originally formed in the early 70s by brothers Jim and John Yardley, the Bully Wee Band successfully toured Britain, Europe and America through several line-ups until the last one of Ian Cutler, Fergus Feely, Colin Reece and Maartin Allcock finally called it a day in 1983.

20 years later a chance meeting between Messrs Cutler, Feely and Reece resulted in a very spirited jam session at Faversham Folk Club in Kent, and a subsequent decision to put a three piece Bully Wee Band back on the road in January 2004 “if only for the craic”.

So successful was the 2004 tour that Colin, Ian and Fergus decided to repeat the experience the following January, only this time with the addition of Bully Wee founder member Jim Yardley. Thus the current line up of Ian Cutler, Fergus Feely, Colin Reece and Jim Yardley was complete and reunited.

They have toured every January since.  Appearing regularly at:

Nettlebed Folk Club (Radio 2 folk club of the year 2002)
Hitchin Folk Club (Radio 2 folk club of the year 2005)
The Red Lion Folk Club, Birmingham (Radio 2 folk club of the year 2006)
The Ram Folk Club Thames Ditton (Radio 2 folk club of the year 2007)
Dartford Folk Club (Radio 2 folk club of the year 2008)

The dates for the January 2017 Bully Wee Band Tour are almost finalised and details so far have been posted on to the news/tour dates page.

A brand new studio recorded CD by the Bully Wee Band, released just in time for their January 2016 tour (and Christmas of course), entitled
Like The Snow

Since the Bully Wee Band reformed in 2004 they have not surprisingly added to their extensive 45 year repertoire and this album is the result.  It is the first time they have been in the studio as one unit in 35 years and the finished tracks demonstrate how they and their sound have matured over the years.
The track listing can be found either by hovering over the above CD cover picture or by going to the
Bully Wee Band Shop Page.
