Purveyors of music that meanders from sea soaked waltz to Italian tarantella, from Brassy funeral march-esque lament to weep along Klezmar knees up, from chain gang holler to rag time finger snap. Skipping through the dark side of anything that makes you want to dance, steeped in melodrama and usually with not a small amount of tongue in cheek.
The Eskies are their own unique brand of folk noir/gypsy jazz/sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle.
Their debut album ‘After The Sherry Went Round’ has achieved critical acclaim from the likes of, The Independent, Hot Press Magazine, Golden Plec and The Last Mixed Tape.
Expect a foot stomping show that’ll you’ll find hard to ignore.
