Honeyfeet on Saturday 18th March 2017

For a good few years, Honeyfeet has been a conduit for the ideas and expressions of an exotic mixture of Manchester based musicians. Jazz? Yes, some of that! Folk? Stick that in there! Hip-hop? I thought you'd never ask!

Someone once called it Folk-Hop and Barrelhouse-pop, and that's just vague enough to make sense. Honeyfeet have spent the past eight years tearing around festival stages and theatres, clubs and fields melting down blues and pop, jazz and disco, pushing air molecules around with instruments and making friends in the process. It's all very lovely. It helps that they are fronted by Ríoghnach Connolly, Real World's newest signing and “a remarkable singer and flautist who...can ease from Irish traditional influences to soul” (The Guardian).

Honeyfeet released the album “It's a Good Job I Love You” in November 2013. Their next, as yet untitled album, is released in 2017.

Lineup:

Ríoghnach Connolly - Vocals/Flute

Rik Warren - Vocals/Harmonica

Biff Roxby - Trombone

John Ellis - Keys

Lorien Edwards - Bass

Phill Howley - Drums

Ellis Davies - Guitar

“Great” - Jools Holland

“Remarkable” - The Guardian

“One Jools Holland Appearance away from runaway success” - Manchester Music Review

“Seldom has conspicuous greatness been more accessible” – City Life

This is a standing show.

Music Genres: 

Folk, Hip Hop, Jazz
