|The Churchfitters : Folk Unlimited|
|The EMN Hall, Monksilver|
The Churchfitters bring their Churchfitters Folk Unlimited Tour to Monksilver. The Churchfitters is a folk band like no other. A bass guitar made out of a frying pan. Heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw. Foot-stompingly fast fiddle mixed with infectious funk-rock bouzouki. And traditional tunes reinvigorated with mesmerising jazz sax.
The three virtuoso musicians from England & France strut their stuff on a stage that bristles with instruments – adding flute, banjo, dulcimer, tin whistle, guitar, ukulele, stand up dustbin bass and a sackful of percussion to their ensemble. And let’s not forget the unique ‘bing-bong’ machine made out of hack-saw blades. Throw in some exquisite harmonies, a slew of startlingly original songs and a few jokes that create instant rapport and you’ve got a high energy show that always leaves audiences cheering. How do you adequately describe such a musically diverse, uplifting band? You leave it to Mike Harding, a self-confessed ‘huge, huge fan’. He calls them ‘totally brilliant and beautiful’.
Advance (adult) tickets £12 or £20 including a delicious light lunch prepared by our volunteer catering crew led by Kerstin Hartmann, former head chef at Toucan Wholefoods. All ticket options available from the usual local outlets and www.wegottickets.com
