Blue Pig Orchestra will be holding the Video Launch Party for their new single, Sleeping in the Gutter.

Filmed over a hectic day in January, this is the first video release by the band. The launch night will also feature a live set of music including the first public performances of many of tracks from their forthcoming album.

The event is being staged at Bootleg Social Bar in Topping Street Blackpool on March 26 and entry is free, doors opening at 7.30pm.

The Blue Pig Orchestra are a six-piece band producing their own brand of folk-rock influenced in equal parts by traditional English and American folk music, Country and Rock and Roll.

Featuring rich harmonies and outstanding musicianship, The Blue Pig Orchestra have gained a reputation as an outstanding live act, bringing their raucous and energetic stage performances to a variety of venues across the UK.

2014 was a fantastic year for the band seeing the release of the band’s second EP From the Storm and the expansion of the band to include virtuoso fiddle player Richard Curran.

Other highlights of the year included performances at a variety of festivals including a main stage performance at the final ‘Fylde Folk Festival’, a headlining slot at Langdale Folk Festival and a rather hectic sold-out launch gig for From The Storm where a large crowd gathered in the car park to listen to the band when it became clear the venue was full! The band is heading back into the studio in the near future to record their debut album and look forward to performing around the UK and Europe in 2015.
