The Eskies to bring a spectacular show to LMF

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 bringing their unique brand of folk noir/gypsy jazz/sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle to Looe Music Festival on Sunday 25th September.

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.

‘‘They perform intelligent, beautifully crafted foot-stompers with cackling humour and delicious musicianship. They emerge from the fog of dry ice and the fallen masts and sails of the shipwreck looking for all the world like the crew that clung the boat in the storm, and the music they deliver feels like it was written for that particular stage, on that night, for that audience. Few bands achieve that in a lifetime.’’ – Hugo Jellett – Festival Organiser
