The Engine Shed
This year Festival favourites, Victor and the Bully, will be joined by Steampunk legends Abney Park for our big musical celebration evening.
“Music from a time that never was, but may yet still come to pass.” Abney Park is an American musical project, the life work of Robert Brown. Robert founded Abney Park over 20 years ago, and since then they’ve released 23 albums, three novels, a role playing gamed, several board games, and two Blurays. They’ve appeared on MTV, G4tv, in the New York Times, and the L.A. times, licensed music to HBO’s Trueblood, and played all over the world, from Moscow, Russia, to Kalispell, Montana.
Victor and the Bully
Victor and the Bully are a London-based musical trio who often perform at steampunk events. They describe their music as “a ‘carnival blend’ of live ukulele and acoustic guitar with a twist of orchestral instruments to provide a very theatrical and cabaret-like sound. Inspired by steampunk, swing, mariachi, classical , electro-swing and punk to bring a very different vibe.”
