The Churchfitters in Concert

Show Details

Presented by The Churchfitters

Performance date and time
Sunday, 16th January 2022
7:30 PM

Back for another round of high-energy fun, The Churchfitters are a folk band like no other: a double bass made out of a saucepan; heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw; foot-stompingly fast fiddle meets funk-rock rhythms; and traditional tunes reinvigorated with mesmerising jazz sax. An evening in their company is an uplifting experience that sends everyone home happy.

The three virtuoso musicians from England and France strut their stuff on a stage that overflows with instruments - adding flute, banjo, dulcimer, tin whistle, guitar, ukulele, electric hub-cap bass-bouzouki and a sack full of percussion to their ensemble. And let’s not forget the unique ‘bing-bong’ machine made from hack-saw blades.

With exquisite harmonies, original songs and a few jokes and The Churchfitters promise a high energy performance that will get you dancing and leave you cheering.
