FOR some pre-Halloween frolics, gypsy-rock-folk band, Holy Moly and The Crackers, are visiting Feckenham next weekend.
Brought to Redditch’s rural outpost by Shindig – the county’s performing arts scheme – the gig at Feckenham Village Hall on Sunday (October 30) is sponsored by Arts Council England, Worcestershire County Council and Redditch Borough Council.
From 7.30pm the Newcastle folk-indie band will perform, drawing from their experiences touring the UK and Europe extensively, including festival appearances at Glastonbury, Hop Farm and the Secret Garden Party.
A spokesperson for the seven-piece band said: “We throw a whole load of genres into the mix. We describe ourselves as ‘gypsy folk rock’, but that’s a very loose term. And we’re changing and developing all the time.
“There’s a big beat; we like to make people dance. But, at the same time, the songs are built around narrative – I guess that’s why we’d class ourselves as a folk band, we like to tell stories”
Tickets to see the moonshine mix of rock, pop, folk, blues, balkan, ska and reggae cost £10 and are available to buy in person at the Village Shop or The Rose & Crown in Feckenham, online at http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/feckenham or by phone on 0333 666 3366.
