Three Beards / Bio

‘With the beauty and madness of a bat stuck in a big head of hair"

Drawing on Eastern European music and the dark traditions of East Anglian folklore, Three Beards are a eight-piece band whose tight and chaotic compositions take you on a journey from the heights of the East European mountains to vast visas of Norfolk’s plains.. The self labelled "Eastern-Anglian" ensemble play a mixture of instruments including banjo, double bass, guitar, violin, marching drums, glockenspiel, accordion, mandolin, toy piano, tuba, saw, broom and the original trumpet from the Muppet Show.to produce a unique sound with nods to computer games, balkan, klezmer and appalachian music.
Their live performances cackle with an energy reminiscent of solstice barn dances fuelled with home brew. Eclectic and DIY in their approach, audiences are often treated to a costumed procession complete with sacrificial burnings, mystical characters and pyrotechnics.They shout, growl, warble lyrics in made up languages and fill out any stage with a pulsating energy creating an experience of soaring emotion with a wild punkish spirit.
