Jamboree
London, United Kingdom
A night of searing Gypsy Folk, Romani, Bone-Cage Burlesque, Americana, Circus Folk, Cajun Dancing, Blues, Skiffle and 60s Rock'n'Roll at Jamboree...

Holy Moly and the Crackers are a Gypsy folk-rock band whose three track EP, 'Lilly', has been described as 'a re-imagining of three traditional folk/blues songs, evoking eras of whiskey and guns on modern punk-folk steroids.' (Cover Lay Down). They channel the honest grit and gravel of Woody Guthrie, the Gypsy bone-cage burlesque of Gogol Bordello, the spectral clarity of Joni Mitchell, playing a lively moonshine mix of Romani, Americana and contemporary British folk-rock.

The Buffalo Skinners began life as a busking band in 2010, channelling old folk and skiffle heroes in northern coastal towns. They now lean towards a fuller electric sound borrowing from 60s rock'n'roll, British invasion bands and still, from their first love, folk. Their live show comes equipped with infectious energy and an arsenal of instruments; Fender Rhodes Keyboard, Violin and Accordion, topped off with their signature 'harmonious vocal cacophony.' All designed to directly cause a good time.
