Folk In The Owl’s Nest Presents Bonfire Radicals, A Different Thread & Will Whisson | Wed 7th | 7:30pm |£4/£3ADV

An unstoppable force, fresh faced and emerging from Birmingham’s exciting Folk/World scene, The Bonfire Radicals is the coming together of eight inspired and talented instrumentalists. They intelligently weave together Klezmer and eastern European inspired woodwind, Scottish born and bred fiddles, hard hitting guitar and bass and intoxicating beats into a new global soundscape.
It all began late in 2010 when this group of diverse players got together with the aim of creating something new and different. A few jam sessions later, and their first gig supporting Bellowhead’s Rachael McShane at Moseley Folk Festival’s legendary Lunar Society sessions, The Bonfire Radicals were born.
Since then the band has quickly built a reputation as a powerful and exciting live act, they’re becoming regulars on the summer festival circuit and have also headlined at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall.
Support comes from A Different Thread and Will Whisson.
