‘Raucous and eclectic, sheer merriment, guaranteed to leave you smiling from ear to ear.’ SONGLINES
‘One of the most exciting and eclectic musical groups I have heard for a very long time.’ ROCK SOCIETY
Birmingham based Bonfire Radicals have emerged from the folk/world scene with a fresh approach to traditional tunes and a host of creative original material. They weave together raucous woodwind, delicate vocals, progressive violin, hard hitting bass, psychedelic electric guitar and percussive beats. Drawing on their eclectic backgrounds, the band chart many divergent influences upon their sound – medieval polyphony, jazz tinged swing, Canterbury sound, klezmer and all points in between. Known for their highly-spirited stage presence, the Bonfire Radicals’ own enthusiasm for their music is undeniable.
£12-00 Standard £10-00 Over 65 £7-00 Under 16s/Students
