Next Monday sees Colchester Folk Club’s last gig before the Easter break but it’s going to be a good one at Colchester Arts Centre with The Demon Barbers.
The Demon Barbers won Best Live Act at BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2009 and they are no ordinary folk band; combining bass guitar, drums, violin, melodeon, accordion, an English concertina along with a rapper.
I just love this fRoots review of them;
“Youthful, enthralling, charismatic, and with bags of attitude, The Demon Barbers combine solid traditional acoustic instruments and songs with the added oomph of a superbly tight rhythm section, making a unique and captivating sound. Energetic fiddle and passionate, distinctive vocals â€˜with driven punchy tunes and songs, drum â€˜nâ€™ bass grooves, the odd touch of ska and an ever present feel that this lot know how to partyâ€™ result in â€˜one of the most exciting acts around.”
Support on the night come via Mike Trim and doors open at 7.45pm on Monday 29th March. Tickets £10/8.
