For nearly two decades this band have brought their array of foot-stomping folk tunes to audiences across the globe. A quintet with a well-stocked armoury of stringed instruments– guitar, fiddle, double bass - with the added energy of flute and drums and a bagful of joint-jumping tunes, these fine musicians create a real dynamic which is inherent in both their furious dance medleys as well as their thoughtfully arranged original pieces.

Putting the groove into a selection of traditional and original European Folk music dating from the medieval times to present day, it’s difficult – nay, impossible – for your limbs to remain stationary when you’re within earshot of them in full flight. The fact that they often play with a knowing wink shouldn’t obscure their impeccable technique, and unique musicianship that raises the roof in every corner of the world they have visited.

Having performed all across the globe the band are renowned for their rousing festival performances and unique small venue tours where floors have had to be reinforced and air conditioning installed in winter, you wont be disappointed!

‘What a joy…a good night out guaranteed’

Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

‘The musicianship is tight and intense’

– Songlines

Support Act: The Schmoozenbergs

Conjuring up the mood of 1930s Paris, fused with flavours of Eastern Europe and a liberal sprinkling of high energy folk, The Schmoozenbergs’ uplifting music will put a smile on your face and a spring in your step. Influenced by a cocktail of musical traditions, from Gypsy jazz to Klezmer, Celtic, Balkan, Bristolian and beyond, they bring you a barrage of energetic and playful original compositions, bursting with
irresistibly bouncy rhythms and tantalizing melodies.

Based in Bristol, the band formed in 2012, and have been delighting audiences at venues and festivals around the UK for the past decade. Their new album ‘Mouse’ was released in March 2024.
