The Demon Barbers XL
The award winning Demon Barbers have racked up an impressive two decades of galvanising the folk scene with their rousing rhythms, soaring crescendos and a ‘maverick’ approach to fusing the contemporary with the traditional.
They will mark this musical milestone with the long-anticipated release of their latest album ‘Rise Up’. Produced by the Grammy award winning duo; Donal Hodgson and Kipper Eldridge, the title is a rallying cry from ‘Ketts Rebellion’ of 1549 and draws striking parallels between the illegal enclosures of common land and the selling off of todays publicly owned utilities. Accompanied by a new adaptation of their critically acclaimed stage show which is guaranteed to excite audiences and have them rising up and begging for more.
Reknowned for their no holds barred approach to their live shows The Demon Barbers return to the stage with a new repertoire, extra band members and a modern twist to their stunning stage show. Featuring some of the UK’s most exciting young Clog, Sword, Hip Hop and Break Dancers they are guaranteed to deliver the Folk music and Dance spectacular of the year.
‘Few acts can hold a candle to The Demon Barbers on stage. A richly entertaining, high- energy jamboree of song, dance and musical surprise’
‘Not so much that veritable melting pot, but a cauldron of cauldrons, an alloy of more precious metals than you can poke a stick at…..just fabulous throughout!’
‘Folk and Hip Hop Unite to stunning effect’
‘They’re giving folk music its own dance revolution. The music here isn’t the background, it’s the manifesto. And it’s wonderful’
