We Are The Monsters

A new Celtic fusion project brought to you by members of Monster Ceilidh Band, Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening and The Shee.

This pioneering contemporary folk project sees traditional roots and electronic influences come together in innovative new ways. A fully mutated mash up of celtic fusion, electronics, synths & beats. Though many have claimed to push new boundaries in folk, We Are The Monsters offer truly groundbreaking experiments in music production.

This five-piece electro-folk line up features some of the finest names in UK folk, including accordion star Amy Thatcher, violinist Grace Smith, octave mandolin player Kieran Szifris, drummer Joe Truswell and award-winning electronic experimentalist and bassist David de la Haye.

Although they’ll still perform together in other line-ups, this new project sees the group gain confidence and creative freedom to boldly step out into previously unexplored territories. The EP Mutated’, was released in 2022, and they can’t wait share their new material with audiences up & down the country at Arts Centres, parties & festivals during 2023.

One thing’s for sure – We Are The Monsters will have you up on your feet all night, so get those dancing shoes on and get ready to let your hair down!

‘… there’s a lovely groove and musical restraint that creates an underlying tension, like a rubber band being stretched; you’re just waiting for that energy to be released, and when it does, they do not disappoint. They will go down a storm on the festival dance floors!’
