3 Daft Monkeys are playing in High Wycombe, 5th May 2017, 20:00 to 23:55 at , Desborough Road, High Wycombe (19.7 miles)
Festival favourites, alternative folk band 3 Daft Monkeys are coming to your area, at the Wycombe Arts Centre, High Wycombe on Friday 5th May, as part of a national tour promoting their brand new album “Year of the Clown”
"Highlight of Glastonbury” Mark Radcliffe BBC2
BEST ALBUM- Spiral Earth (Readers poll) BEST LIVE ACT- Spiral Earth (Readers poll) BEST LIVE ACT- Hancock Awards
Bringing vibrant new songs from their brand new album “Year of the Clown”, festival favourites 3 Daft Monkeys will be performing a brand new set of their quirky,
original and upbeat fiddle-driven tunes at the Wycombe Arts Centre, High Wycombe on Friday 5th May.
Now with a 4-piece line-up, the band will be taking their famously dynamic live show to new danceable heights.
After experiencing the band’s notoriously energetic live performance at Glastonbury, Mark Radcliffe declared them as one of his “Highlights of the Festival” on BBC TV,
and subsequently invited them to play a session on his BBC Radio 2 Folk Show.
With Celtic and eastern influences, Cornwall-based 3 Daft Monkeys’ style of world folk music reflects the global village in which we now live.
Their infectious dancing rhythms lead you through a musical journey of the senses and emotions, and will leave you breathless, enthralled and exhilarated.
Following a highly successful crowdfunding campaign, 3DM are releasing a brand new album.
The title track “Year of the Clown” is a social and whimsical comment on the ‘elected principles’ in the world circus, who appear to be the fools.
“The musicianship- the virtuosity, the song craft, the arrangement- is simply astonishing “ (Spiral Earth)
“Varied and stirring acoustic style.. Outstanding fiddle work” (The Guardian)
“Music as joyously life-affirming as this deserves a huge audience” (West Briton)
“A brilliant band... I think this is absolutely amazing” Mike Harding (BBC Radio 2)
“A veritable melting pot of styles makes a colourful carnival of sound” (fROOTS)
“Their live show strikes a quality balance of spaced-out dizziness, dance-ability and sophisticated folk music.” (Bearded Theory Festival)
You can buy tickets from brownpapertickets £10 + booking fee. Support from The Alex Kew Band.
