Steamchicken on Friday 16th March 2018

Festival veterans Steamchicken return to the concert circuit with more of what you love including the fabulous Amy Kakoura on vocals and a dash of some new talent.

Folk with a twist, with huge dollop of blues and ska, the powerful four-piece horn section drives a set featuring mostly original material together with their own take on a few classics.

For over 20 years, Steamchicken have been delighting audiences with their own brand of fun. In Ceilidhs, concerts, bar sets and workshops, the 7 talented and versatile musicians bring musical genres together in a way that shouldn't work but does. Piano, melodeon, harmonica, vocals and percussion combine with a tightly knit horn section to provide entertainment that goes way beyond a dance or a song. This band don't take themselves too seriously - just don't let Andrew tell the sausage joke!

'...with the wonderful voice of Amy Kakoura leading the euphoric troops. Yesterday's swinging vibes for today's sonic ecstasy. This is what your body, soul and mind exactly need all weekend long. Get up and fight for your right to party...' Turn Up The Volume

'a mulch of jazz, folk and Americal hoedown - hilarious' - The Times (Hot Tickets)

'Good Noisy Fun' - fRoots

'Just have to be seen live' - Living Tradition

'…folk, jazz, blues, soul…combine seamlessly into a coherent sound… soulful, haunting … outstanding vocals.' Ian Croft: R2 5*
