The Friends Of Thimblemill Library welcome Birmingham based Bonfire Radicals to the library together with support act.
Birmingham based Bonfire Radicals have emerged from the folk/world scene with a fresh approach to traditional tunes and a host of creative original material. They weave together raucous woodwind, delicate vocals, progressive violin, hard hitting bass, psychadelic electric guitar and percussive beats. Drawing on their eclectic backgrounds, the band chart many divergent influences upon their sound – medieval polyphony, jazz tinged swing, Canterbury sound, klezmer and all points in between. Known for their highly-spirited stage presence, the Bonfire Radicals' own enthusiasm for their music is undeniable.

'One of the most exciting and eclectic musical groups I have heard for a very long time.'
The whole ensemble's character and fierce impact is startling, a boldly raucous, at times gloriously chaotic wig out that perhaps against the odds pulls itself fast together to form something quite staggeringly special as it fairly bombards you into submission (tho' nicely of course!)
