Monster Ceilidh Band
Monster Ceilidh Band seamlessly blend electronic dance music with traditional folk music and manage to encourage diverse audiences from all over the world to get up and party! Their pioneering mix of Drum ‘n Bass with Traditional Folk has been endorsed by outstanding live performances at award-winning festivals such as Bestival and Secret Garden Party alongside more familiar folk offering such as Sidmouth and Cambridge Folk Festivals. “The Monsters” now do fully electronic ceilidhs as first showcased at Cambridge Folk Festival with the UK’s leading caller Gordon Potts.
“Monster ceilidh Band wear their virtuosity lightly, throwing influences from all over the spectrum with soaring fiddle and atmospheric percussion that more than delivers on the promise of a good time.” SONGLINES (Graeme Thomson, from his review of Charge) “In 5 years of putting this dance tent on, I have NEVER had a Sunday afternoon like the Monsters brought!!! The place was jumping!!!” Phill Mellersh, BEARDED THEORY 2013 and then “the Monsters performed out of their socks on Sunday to a full and energetic tent… had the Peatbog[Faeries] and Shoogl[nifty] last year but the Monsters matched em for getting a Sunday afternoon crowd going….definitely set for big things!” from Bearded Theory 2014
“Joyously visceral, Charge is one of the most celebratory records I’ve heard in long time.”
R2 (Oz Hardwick, from his review of Charge)
