The Buffalo Skinners / Holy Moly & the Crackers These two young bands accompany each other perfectly and you'll find them on good form having both honed their sets over the festival season. Their last Dublin Castle show was sold out so order early to avoid disappointment! T H E B U F F A L O S K I N N E R S The Buffalo Skinners began life as a busking band in 2010, channelling old folk and skiffle heroes to appreciative ears in northern coastal towns.Four years together now finds them leaning towards a fuller electric sound borrowing from 60's rock & roll, British invasion bands and still, from their first love, folk. Their live show comes equipped with infectious energy and an arsenal of instruments; Fender Rhodes Keyboard, Violin and Accordion, topped off with their signature 'harmonious vocal cacophony.' All designed to directly be the cause of a good time. You can listen to their entire discography for free on Bandcamp. It has already made a big impression with some very well respected judges: "I've never seen The Duchess so packed out for a supposedly unsigned, undiscovered and under the radar band" - Jericho Keys, BBC Introducing "Fantastic" Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2 "Jolly Exciting" Cerys Matthews, BBC 6 Music H O L Y M O L Y & T H E C R A C K E R S Holy Moly and the Crackers, a young gypsy folk-rock band, signed to Northern Lights Music in January 2012. Soon after they were announced as winners of a national competition to play the main Bread and Roses stage at Hopfarm Festival (headlining - Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, Ray Davis etc.) where they drew in the crowds and the accolades. They released their debut album, First Avenue, in October 2012. Tracks from the album have been featured in the likes of Maverick Magazine, No Depression and played on a number of occasions by Amazing Radio, BBC Intro and leading music critic Mike Harding. Holy Moly and the Crackers are influenced by an eclectic range of styles and artists; the honest grit and gravel of Woody Guthrie, the gypsy bone-cage burlesque of Gogol Bordello, the spectral clarity of Joni Mitchell. As such they play a lively, moonshine mix of Romani, Americana and contemporary British folk-rock. "musicians are stylistically dazzling and the 'circus-folk' flavour of the album means that the group really does stand out from the crowd" Bright Young Folk Other act announced soon! It's going to be a good one!OFFICIAL LINK: http://www.thebuffaloskinners.com
