Man The Lifeboats play raucous, upbeat folk music, for those who like a drink with their tunes. This London five-piece use an array of instruments to craft songs with big choruses that tell stories.
Formed in the wake of a blistering Skinny Lister gig back in 2016, Harvey, Rich, Sam, Dan and David have taken their shared love of straight-up lyrics, pounding bass-lines, lilting mandolin and fiddle melodies and stomping beats and have created a sound that would not be out of place at a party at the end of the world.
Influences? Well, up there with Skinny Lister we have the Pogues, Bellowhead, Tom Waits, Dylan, Springsteen, Frank Turner, Holy Moly & the Crackers, and of course, Chic.
Throw all that in a cauldron and you end up with a blistering live experience, tales of lost evenings, ballads of doomed love and shanties about whisky-soaked nights, Michael Palin, and the end of the world.
Greenman Rising is a folk band based in the English Midlands.
Greenman Rising provide hardcore tradition for modern audiences. Driving dance tunes, songs about love, war, murder and betrayal. The soldier who rebels against an invasion and the sailor cheated when he comes on shore. Beautiful ballads and full-on musical madness that’ll get you dancing the night away.
