“…between Bellowhead and UB40…exhilarating stuff.” Vic Smith. FRoots.
“…an irresistible sound that leaves this listener, at least, with an overwhelming feeling of joy.” Barry Goodman: Shire-folk
“….an excellent album, mixing so many styles and ideas in a bewildering stew of exciting music.” Dai Jeffries: Folking.com
“…some great storytelling … the use of a full brass section and driving rhythm section that is the real eye-opener…and the amazing vocal range of Amy handling everything thrown at her.” Dave Beeby: The Living Tradition.
Ceilidh-swing veterans Steamchicken return to the concert circuit with a re-invented set, a new hard hitting sound and the fabulous Amy Kakoura on vocals. Folk with a twist, with huge dollop of blues and ska, the powerful four-piece horn section drives a set featuring mostly original material together with their own take on a few classics, new album “Look Both Ways” just released.
Man the Lifeboats play raucous, upbeat folk music, for those who like a drink with their tunes. This London-based four-piece use an array of instruments to craft songs with big choruses that tell stories.
