With Celtic and eastern influences, the 3 Daft Monkeys’ dynamic style of world folk music reflects the
global village in which we now live. Their infectious dancing rhythms lead you through a musical journey
of the senses and emotions, and will leave you breathless, enthralled and exhilarated.
After experiencing the band’s notoriously energetic live performance at Glastonbury Festival last
summer, Mark Radcliffe declared them as one of his “Highlights of the Festival” on BBC TV coverage,
and subsequently invited them to play a session on his BBC Radio 2 Folk Show. The band have also
performed a live session with Whispering Bob Harris on Radio 2.
With a brand new 4-piece line-up, the band weave enchanting melodies with catchy choruses, virtuoso
vibrant fiddle, rhythmic 12-string guitar, 6-string bass, bespoke hand-percussion and 4-part vocal
harmonies. Fascinating lyrics of personal and whimsical observations on life, and folk tales both ancient
and modern, are told within the swirling layers of their music, all with the essential catchy sing-along
