The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican
Hailing from the not-as-posh-end of Barnsley, The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican are on a mission to follow in their spiritual father’s immortal footsteps and keep his legacy alive. They have a talent for Bar-Stewardizing other famous people’s songs with new comedy lyrics, on acoustic ‘geetar’, banjo, fiddle, mandolin and accordion. To complete their squeaky-clean image, brothers-from-other-mothers Scott, Björn and Alan have become instantly recognisable in any festival field 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 almost 1000 side-splitting shows to date wowing audiences with a fine selection of their anarchic greatest hits, including the likes of “Jump Ararnd”, “The Lady In Greggs”, How Deep Is Your Glove? and “If I Could
Punch A Face… It’d Be Justin Bieber’s”.
The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican are delighted to be returning to Underneath The Stars, and they promise that they WILL rock you… but gently!
