3 Daft Monkeys + Dumber Than The Average Bear
"Cornish gypsy-folk band 3 Daft Monkeys weave world music influences around classic folk melodies. Their passion, intensity and sheer joy of life mixed with their infectious dancing rhythms will leave you breathless,enthralled and exhilarated.
The release of their sixth studio album Of Stones and Bones brings their most story-led and theatrical music to date. A compelling collection of songs, 3 Daft Monkeys draws you into the bizarre and mysterious world of Cornish tales and superstitions, both ancient and modern.
Characters are brought to life in a theatre of sound, from upbeat mischievous musings on the god of the sea, Bucca Dhu, to the tragic and heart-wrenching tale of Jenny Trayer and her unfortunate child, from tales of curses inspired by a hair-raising night in the Boscastle Witch Museum to the eccentric story of Reverend Hawker.
3 Daft Monkeys, themselves icons of the underground counter culture of the last decade, is the perfect band to engage with this mythic landscape."
