Trongate Rum Riots / Bio

As the result of a complex string of legal entanglements and gambling debts, Denis Faig Entertainments is “proud” to present the Trongate Rum Riots, the ONLY show in town. Shunned by polite London society, the Riots have scandalised parishes from Lincoln to Liverpool, before eventually creeping, cancer-like, upon old Glasgow town. The modern-day equivalent of the wandering minstrels of the High Middle Ages, the Riots’ unique blend of speed folk and celtic-infused punk has been making women in whalebone corsets faint for around 132 years now. As it happens, they've just released their second EP of music via CSK Muzik, reassuringly printed and bound in the British Empire.
All nine of the collective's coterie of cads invite one and all to their health-giving chantey recitals; in this branch of the profession, the Trongate Rum Riots CHALLENGE THE WORLD!!
