3 DAFT MONKEYS
Bringing vibrant and sparkling new songs from their recently released album “Year of the Clown”, festival favourites 3DM perform a brand new set of their quirky, original and upbeat fiddle-driven tunes. Now with a 4-piece line-up, the band are taking their famously dynamic live show to new danceable dizzy heights.
With Celtic and eastern influences, the 3 Daft Monkeys’ style of world folk music reflects the global village in which we now live. Their infectious dancing rhythms lead you through a musical journey of the senses and emotions, and will leave you breathless, enthralled and exhilarated.
After experiencing the band’s notoriously energetic live performance at Glastonbury, Mark Radcliffe declared them as one of his “Highlights of the Festival” on BBC TV, and subsequently invited them to play a session on his BBC Radio 2 Folk Show.
Following a highly successful crowdfunding campaign, 3DM have just released a brand new album. The title track “Year of the Clown” is a social and whimsical comment on the strange and disturbing times we find ourselves in, where the ‘elected principles’ in the world circus appear to be the fools.
