An ecclectic evening of untraditional folk from the Second City

 

Birmingham-based Bonfire Radicals have emerged from the folk/ world scene with a fresh musical approach and a host of engaging traditional and original material.  Probably unlike anything you've heard before, they draw on many eclectic influences for their sound - a fusion of medieval melodies, jazz-tinged swing, folk-rock, klezmer and all points in between - and go from pyrotechnic folk-rock to delicate unaccompanied singing.  Plentifully melodic and richly rhythmic, they weave together emotive vocals and free-ranging classical recorder, clarinet and fiddle over a pulsating rhythm mix of guitar, bass and drums.

'Quite staggeringly special. On this evidence, Bonfire Radicals are quite a discovery - grab the chance to go see them live.' Fatea Magazine

Nominated for the Birmingham Music Awards 2019 'Best Folk/ Country Act'.
 

The music of Filkin’s Drift takes inspiration from medieval monks, Africa, Cuba and their native folk traditions of Wales and Gloucestershire.

Seth Bye (fiddle) and Chris Roberts (guitar) began working together in 2018 and were quickly accepted onto the esteemed Live Music Now and Music in Hospitals and Care programs. Their unique writing style has rapidly seen them becoming one of the most sought after duos in the West Midlands.
