A FRIDAY NIGHT OF HOT IRISH JIGS AND REELS, FOOT STOMPERS AND LYRICAL FOLK!
Fresh from Heathrow BENJAMING’S CLAN head straight to Kingston for their first ever gig on these shores. Formed in 2013 in the Czech Republic Benjaming’s Clan began life as a straight up Celtic-Punk band but in latter years have become more folk orientated. Their songs still pack a punk rock punch and are characteristically ironic, emotional and filled with enormous positive energy. Expect bagpipes, banjo, trumpet, mandolin, accordion, tin whistle, violin, keyboards and of course drums, guitar and acoustic bass.
CROCK OF BONES are a new north London Alt-folk, Celtic, Irish, Trad band whose backgrounds stretch back to 90s Celtic-Punk, gypsy jazz, dark folk and rock. Using fiddle, accordion, banjo, guitar and double bass and vocals, their set contains originals/ standards/ reels and jigs, from full-pelt foot-stompers like Hot Asphalt to sing-along ballads like the original Ferry.
Sounding nothing like 99% of bands that begin with Dis…
