The Churchfitters Christmas Cracker @ The Song Loft
Venue: York House Centre, London Road, Stony Stratford MK11 1JQ
Date: 20 Dec 2019
Time: 20:00 to - 22:45
The Churchfitters Christmas Cracker @The Song Loft: The Churchfitters is a folk band like no other. A bass guitar made out of a frying pan. Heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw. Foot-stompingly fast fiddle mixed with infectious funk-rock bouzouki. And traditional tunes reinvigorated with mesmerising jazz sax.
The three virtuoso musicians from England and France strut their stuff on a stage that bristles with instruments - adding flute, banjo, dulcimer, tin whistle, guitar, ukulele, stand up dustbin bass and a sackful of percussion to their ensemble. And let’s not forget the unique ‘bing-bong’ machine made out of hack-saw blades.
Throw in some exquisite harmonies, a slew of startlingly original songs and a few jokes that create instant rapport and you’ve got a high energy show that always leaves audiences cheering. How do you adequately describe such a musically diverse, uplifting band? You leave it to Mike Harding, a self-confessed ‘huge, huge fan’. He calls them 'totally brilliant and beautiful'.
Doors open at 7:30pm – Performance starts at 8:00pm
Tickets (£13.20 including booking fee) available from www.wegottickets.com.
