Holy Moly and the Crackers

Henshaws – 7.30 pm

Holy Moly & The Crackers are a seven-piece Gypsy Folk Rock band from the UK.

Founders Conrad Bird, Ruth Patterson and Squeezebox Rosie lead the band with compelling charismatic style.

They are a bunch of wild gypsy troubadours with more than a touch of magic about them (Diva Publications)

They released their debut album First Avenue in October 2012 and an EP Lilly a year later – described as a re-imagining of three traditional folk/blues songs that evokes eras of whiskey and guns on modern punk folk steroids (Cover Lay Down). Their 2015 release A Punk Called Peter is a sort of New Orleans funeral march mixed with some fine and highly danceable reggae (Northern Sky). Their latest single Burning Back Wheel was self-released in 2016.

They have recently made a new album with top rock/pop producer Matt Terry at Vada Studios (The Enemy, Ocean Colour Scene, The Wonderstuff etc.) which will be released in 2017 –There is a good reason as to why a lot of people are loving this band, I was drawn in the moment I heard them … their sound is like a dirty circus (M.Terry)

We are massive fans here at FEVA HQ.  Get your dancing shoes on and see you there!
