"With poetic, imagery infused lyrics the duo interweaves texture, melody and harmony invoking the ambient, surreal and otherworldly nature of dreams. The meeting point of their earthy, acoustic roots with the recent exploration of a more contemporary and electronic territory - the music brings these seemingly separate qualities into a space which is both intimate and expansive."
2pm - 5pm
Held in the main hall

Unique and timeless songs of vision, question and change performed by Keith James
Words that reverberate with the tenacity of human spirit in these current times of brooding disquiet, fractured societies and civil unrest. Songs that have changed history and moved millions of people to do things they never thought possible. Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens, Nina Simone and Leonard Cohen. For this concert, the original living writers of each song have been asked to compose powerful brand new verses that stand proud in the 21st century against this current wave of crises.
Keith, a life-long devotee of emotional performance, approaches each song with fresh courage and passion and includes all of the new verses – chilling to listen to!
"James clearly sees the danger of living in a post-truth, self-serving society, but sees hope too." - Folking.com

Monster Ceilidh Band Present: their ‘Electrofolk’ spectacular with 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 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 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.
This is not a ceilidh, it’s electrofolkmaggeddon!
“Monster Ceilidh Band have the skills to create that instant party, with an infectious blend that fuses UK folk, with drum & bass." - Mike Green, London King’s Place, Wilderness Festival & London Folk Guild
“Young and sassy, innovative and skilful the Monsters effortlessly fuse the traditional with the contemporary” - Liz Holmes, Director Knockengorroch World Ceilidh
