It's not just a book thing!
Following in the footsteps of John Cooper Clarke, Linton Kwesi Johnson and Police Dog Hogan, the headliner for the 2015 LitFest’s Saturday night show at the Fermain Tavern is Neil Innes, best known as a member of the Bonzo Dog (Doo-Dah) Band and the Rutles and for collaborating with Monty Python.
Support comes from Buffalo Huddleston and Ushti Baba. Here’s a little taster of each of the acts:
First on stage will be Neil Innes:
Next up will be local favourites Buffalo Huddleston.
“A five-piece alternative ‘folk-hop’ band, Buffalo Huddleston use violin, acoustic guitar, didgeridoo, vocal harmonies, rap, double bass, and drums to craft a unique fusion of multiple genres they describe as folk-hop.”
Finally, from the UK, Ushti Baba.
“Beatbox-powered acoustic folk. From morris-dance moshing to Roma reggae, the group’s eight musicians bring a cosmic rainbow of influence, served with skill and panache: klezmer to Celtic, flamenco to dubstep – original and traditional songs and stories are uniquely inspired and exuberantly delivered.”
Tickets for the evening are £15 and can be booked online here.
