DIRTY OLD FOLKERS HIT THE BEEB!
Dirty Old Folkers to feature on BBC Radio WM on 7th Dec (tbc). We’ll be chatting about the usual Dirty Old Folkers stuff - philosophy, politics and….PANTO!
A super-charged folk ensemble, Dirty Old Folkers create musical mayhem. Think of a Viz comic, being narrated by the Pogues.
Juxtaposing Folk with Comedy, Cabaret and Political satire, Dirty Old Folkers cook up a fine brew of a show. Theirs is a pick ‘n’ mix sweetie bag of musical genius, stretching across an ever expanding repertoire – Irish Folk – Bluegrass – Blues – a quick detour to Jazz – Classical Music – a nod to Black Sabbath, and all while spanking Pete Seeger’s monkey.
They sing of the Bankers’ Bonus system, a sonnet to the Coalition Government, and an Ode to Theology. Deeply rooted in the urban jungle in which they inhabit, Dirty Old Folkers picket against the UK’s industrial demise. Oh, and did someone mention a dancing Panda and Death…?
