Monster Ceilidh Band, a six-piece outfit from Newcastle, are no strangers to experimentation, and they continue to demonstrate a great talent for producing innovative yet accessible music. They are a band which pushes the boundaries of contemporary folk in all the right directions, Monster Ceilidh Band never retreat into a pastiche of either drum and bass or folk. Their synergy respects both genres, and this results in an album that is both credible and really good fun. The real talent here is that Monster Ceilidh Band’s style is clearly club influenced, yet light enough to still be enjoyable for those who are not natural followers of dance music. Their sound is like the cool sibling of traditional folk, the one with the band t-shirt and heavy eyeliner. In short, Monster Ceilidh Band have created a sound full of head-banging, glowstick-waving energy – and it’s epic.” Martha Buckley Folk RadioTheir
‘Electro-folk’ show features the award winning talents of Accordionist Amy Thatcher and Teeside Violinist Grace Smith. Their powerful and uncompromising style has brought them to the attention of many of the major UK and European Festivals. The band are on a crusade to bring a modern and non-patronising approach to ceilidh music, the traditional music of the British Isles.
Their experimentation with electronic beats, ‘simply stunning’ (Songlines), has its roots in the traditional but produces something innovative, contemporary and dynamic.
D’n’B producer, The Touch, works with electronic experimentalist and Bassist, David de la Haye, to augment the compositions of Amy Thatcher, Grace Smith and Octave Mandolin player, Kieran Szifris. The result is a crucible for smelting riffs, massive chord progressions, intense electronics, folk tunes and a wide variety of styles from simply some of the UK’s finest folk musicians.
Summer 2019 saw the band perform at many festivals, including; Bearded Theory, Kendal Calling, Camp Bestival & Boomtown Fair.
