The Demon Barbers XL
WINNERS OF ‘BEST LIVE ACT’ @ BBC RADIO 2 FOLK AWARDS
Renowned for their no holds barred approach to their live shows The Demon Barbers return to the concert stage with a new repertoire, extra band members and a modern twist to their multi-award winning Roadshow.
The Demon Barbers XL brings some of the UK’s most exciting young Clog, Sword, Hip Hop & Break dancers onto the concert stage to create the live folk music & dance spectacular of the year!
The XL show features new material from their latest album ‘Disco At The Tavern’, a collaboration with Grammy & Emmy award winners Donal Hodgson and Kipper Eldridge, best known for their work with Sting.
‘Combining solid traditional acoustic instruments and songs with the added oomph of a superbly tight rhythm section they create a unique and captivating sound. Energetic fiddle and passionate, distinctive vocals ‘with driven punchy tunes and songs, drum ‘n’ bass grooves, the odd touch of ska and an ever present feel that this lot know how to party’ result in ‘one of the most exciting acts around… check them out….’ fRoots
One of the best live bands I’ve ever seen. If you get a chance to see them – don’t miss it – they are brilliant!
