3 Daft Monkeys announce winter tour
Festival favourites 3 Daft Monkeys bring their quirky and original approach to music back to venues across the UK this winter, after a whirlwind summer of international gigs and festival headline shows.
After experiencing the band’s notoriously energetic live performance at Glastonbury Festival this summer to a packed-out Avalon Stage, 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 on Weds 26th November.
In their famously intense and dynamic live shows, the band will be performing songs from their award-winning latest album Of Stones and Bones (Best Album, Spiral Earth Awards 2014), a collection of old, new and fictional Cornish tales of forbidden love, murder, rebellion, witchcraft and piracy. All delivered with “panache and a wicked vein of humour”.
With a new 4-piece line-up, the band weave enchanting melodies with catchy choruses, virtuoso fiddle, rhythmic 12-string guitar, solid bass, hand-percussion kit and 3-part harmonies. With Celtic and eastern influences, the 3 Daft Monkeys’ dynamic style of world-influenced folk music and infectious dancing rhythms, will leave you breathless, enthralled and exhilarated. The desire to dance is irresistible.
