With Celtic and eastern influences, the 3 Daft Monkeys’ dynamic style of world folk music reflects the global village in which we now live. Their infectious dancing rhythms lead you through a musical journey
of the senses and emotions, and will leave you breathless, enthralled and exhilarated. After experiencing the band’s notoriously energetic live performance at Glastonbury Festival Mark Radcliffe declared them as one of his “Highlights of the Festival” on BBC TV coverage, and subsequently invited them to play a session on his BBC Radio 2 Folk Show.

The band have also performed a live session with Whispering Bob Harris on Radio 2.

Following a highly successful crowdfunding campaign in 2017, the band have released a brand new album which has received 5* reviews in both Rock n Reel and fRoots. The title track “Year of the Clown”
is a social and whimsical comment on the strange and disturbing times we find ourselves in, where the ‘elected principles’ in the world circus appear to be the fools.

With their quirky and original approach to music, and their passion, intensity and sheer joy of life, 3 Daft Monkeys have gained themselves a large and loyal cult following. Their music is hard to pigeon-hole,
mixing and crossing many musical genres from Celtic, Klezmer, Gypsy, Balkan, Latin, Ska, Dub Reggae, Indie, Rock and even a hint of Shostakovich. 3 Daft Monkeys have always maintained an
independent and cottage-industry approach to their musical career, and have gained a huge following whilst ploughing their own furrow through the music business, gaining momentum through their live
performances and intensive European touring schedule.

This is a seated Arena event.
