FiddleBop/Cardboard Box Thieves at Hay Globe
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Two brilliant bands in one evening. For free! FiddleBop and the Cardboard Box Thieves are at the Hay Globe on the evening of Saturday 6 August. A donation is requested for the DJP Foundation "Supporting those in the agricultural sector with poor mental health".
FiddleBop plays Gypsy jazz (updated!) on violin, Spanish guitar, keyboard, and fretless bass, and with four voices in harmony. FiddleBop's jazz is sophisticated and passionate but not pretentious or stuffy; highly danceable but not rhythmically boring; has plenty of improvised solos but is still tuneful and melodic. You'll love it!
And then there's the brilliant Cardboard Box Thieves too! From Builth Wells, the Thieves play original songs in a folk style for voice, accordion, banjo and guitar. Yaaaay!
So why not open your ears to something new? For free? Don't miss these two amazing bands. See you there?
FiddleBop! Sparkling songs and tasty tunes... daily-bread jazz from the 1920s (when "jazz was king"), chilli-hot swing and bop from later decades, plus jazzy-flavoured sides of classic pop and of songs written just yesterday. All rich with instrumental pizzazz and tangy vocal harmonies. And lightly seasoned with wit, repartee and banter. We love what we play, and it shows!
