The Flying Engine String Band

Craig Woodward’s ‘Flying Engine Stringband’ is the current incarnation of the band formerly known as Headbelly Buzzard who held an almost 20 year Friday night residency at the Railway Hotel in North Fitzroy.
Featuring fiddles, clawhammer banjo, guitar, banjolin and double bass with occasional high lonesome vocalizing, Flying Engine continue the tradition of driving, hypnotic American Southern Appalachian style Old Time Stringband music for your dancing and listening pleasure.
Check them out in our gorgeous beer garden to see for yourself why ‘Old Time Stringband Music’ is enjoying such a strong, spirited worldwide renaissance!
