Presented by Bonfire Radicals
Performance date and time
Sunday, 30th September 2018
One of the most exciting and eclectic groups on the folk/world scene, the Bonfire Radicals blend gorgeous medieval and Celtic folk, dynamic eastern European jazz-swing and punchy world-beats into a unique sonic identity that truly beguiles.
Armed with emotive vocals, melodic classical recorders and woodwind, electrifying fiddle, and a tight, rocking rhythm section, theirs is a boldly original and highly-spirited, at times gloriously chaotic, live stage show.
Michelle Holloway: recorders, vocals
Sarah Farmer: violin, vocals
Katie Stevens: clarinets, kaval, vocals
Shankara Andy Bole: eclectic 12-string guitar
Trevor Lines: bass guitar, double-bass
Ilias Lintzos: drums, vocals
Birmingham-based Bonfire Radicals have emerged from the folk/world scene with a fresh approach to traditional tunes and a host of engaging traditional and creative original material.
'On this evidence, Bonfire Radicals are quite a discovery - grab the chance to go see them live.' Fatea Magazine
One of the most exciting and eclectic musical groups, with joyous abandon they weave together delicate vocals, raucous recorder and clarinet, and soaring violin over a pulsating rhythm mix of guitar, bass and drums. Probably unlike anything you've heard before, they draw on many eclectic influences for their sound – a fusion of medieval melodies, jazz-tinged swing, folk-rock, klezmer and all points in between.
Known for their highly-spirited stage presence, the Bonfire Radicals' own enthusiasm for their music is undeniable.
