Why 'Stookey Blue'?

The band's name comes from a local delicacy - a cockle from Stiffkey, a village on the North Norfolk coast whose name is often pronounced 'Stookey' or 'Stewkey'. The cockle can have a blue tint to its colouring due to the mud in which it lives. There's more about it on this Information Britain page.

Also, please note, we are Stookey Blue and not Blues - we play folk music and ceilidh dance music, not the blues! :)
