About The Crooked Fiddle Band

The Crooked Fiddle Band are based in Sydney, Australia, and formed in 2006 through our mutual love of the energy and intensity of various traditional world music. Whilst writing and arranging, we discovered that this energy was shared by the other music we love: there seems to be a common thread between the frenetic accompaniment of gypsy, klezmer and punk rock; between the twisting rhythms of math-metal and balkan folk; between the clear tonalities of Scandinavian folk, Celtic folk, and cinematic post rock. All these influences went into the mix, but what came out was The Crooked Fiddle Band. The sound we love is dark and often driving, but also writhing and ecstatic. We’ve jumped around with whirling crowds at festivals, bars and dirty warehouse parties throughout Europe and Australia and also played our more cinematic sounds in the Opera Theatre of the Sydney Opera House. This music we've sometimes called 'chainsaw folk' – even though we're pro-conservation – but others have called it “14th century Romanian metal”, “thrash folk”, “whirlwind gypsy” and even “what Sepultura would sound like if they provided the soundtrack to a hyperactive version of O Brother Where Art Thou.” So whilst the search continues for a name for our genre, we're mainly concerned with making music with melody, energy and intensity. REVIEWS for "Moving Pieces of the Sea" : "An epic, from a scorched steampunk fantasy paradigm.... undeniably breathtaking. 4 stars." : Brendan Telford, THE MUSIC (2 October 2013) "The Crooked Fiddle Band have released the soundtrack to the coming apocalypse... where symphonic metal meets acoustic folk-punk in soaring, neo-classical art-rock, with sepulchral gothic overtones... an extraordinarily rich, and expressive release." : Matthew Stoff, 4ZZZ (3 October 2013) "A brave eclectic release reminiscent of some of the pioneering work done by Apocalyptica... a moving land and seascape of sonics, taking you on a journey that will challenge your eardrums." : Tory Idiotboxradio , Geelong Blabbertiser (8 October 2013) "...showcases fierce, perforating drums, soaring bow-work and the heaviest breakdown to ever be played by wooden instruments... Their performances are so energetic and unfathomably tight that it’s difficult not to have a good time... For anyone who is interested in blowing out their musical horizons, , The Crooked Fiddle Band are pretty right on." : Leigh MacDonald, TONE DEAF (8 October 2013 ) From world music to end-of-the-world music
