This original, Wiltshire four piece was the final act to grace the Royal Oak stage in 2012.

“Having been singing from the heart since the ‘60s, the voice of Paul Darby has matured like fine wine.


Already front-man for the ever popular Dubious Brothers, with the Yirdbards this is Darby at his most soulful.


The songs, many of which have been written by close friends, have a strong spiritual power, often drawing on man’s potent relationship with nature, landscape and society.”   Bob Harris

The Yirdbards are still performing together, as well as working on other musical projects.
