Lonely Mr Punch / Bio
A Ceilidh Band but not as you know it!!!
Danny Holland's production of albums for bands, from punk to folk singers, gives the experience and musical knowledge to experiment with Lonely Mr Punch. Lee Sinclair is the only true "folky" of the band having played melodeon for ceilidh bands for over twenty years. He is currently the musician for Kesteven Morris (check them out on Google).
Lonely Mr Punch available for ceilidh barn dances throughout the East Midlands and for Festivals all over Europe.
Danny, Lee, Jill are experienced ceilidh musicians but have taken the leap into a whole new sphere of dance music. The addition of bass player Ferny, the fantastic drumming of Dave and the rhythm of James on acoustic guitar, combine with the production and virtuosity of Danny Holland, lifting Lonely Mr Punch from a Trad Folk band into a dance band for the 21st Century. If its' tradition you want, hard luck! We use traditional tunes as a catalyst for extraordinary music using the latest technology to enhance our sound.
Take a listen to Danny Hollands album NO FIXED ABODE to see what we mean (available on Spotify and all good download sites).
