Monster Ceilidh Band present their eclectic Ceilidh experience with the award-winning talents of accordionist Amy Thatcher and the gifted young Teeside violinist Grace Smith. Their powerful and uncompromising approach has brought them to the attention of many of the major UK Festivals; from Cambridge to Bestival, along with Tanz und Folkfest, Germany and Colours of Ostrava in the Czech Republic, The Rainforest World Music Festival, Borneo and soon to audiences across the world.
The 'Monsters' have been guided by bands like Shooglenifty, Martyn Bennet and the Peatbog Faeries, continuing in the electronic-fusion genre with their self styled ElectroFolk. D’n’B producer the Touch works together with electronic experimentalist and bassist David de la Haye to augment the compositions of Amy, Grace and octave mandolin player, Kieran Szifris.
The result is a fascinating combination of favourite dances accompanied by innovative sets, creative chord progressions, intense electronics, folk tunes and a wide variety of styles from simply some of the UK’s finest folk musicians.
