Holy Moly & The Crackers + The Buffalo Skinners

Please note this is an 18+ event
HOLY MOLY & THE CRACKERS are influenced by an eclectic range of styles and artists – the honest grit and gravel of Woody Guthrie, the gypsy bone-cage burlesque of Gogol Bordello: punk, ska, reggae, folk, blues, honky-tonk, Balkan etc. As such they play a ‘unique mash-up of folk/blues hoe-downs and french zazou in outlandish carnival style. It is loud, funky and fun’ 


“They are a bunch of wild gypsy troubadours with more than a touch of magic about them.  … every song is a powerhouse of storytelling and compelling musical arrangement”

THE BUFFALO SKINNERS are a songwriting collective based in Sheffield. Their music stems from a shared passion for writing and singing in harmony. The band draw influence from 60’s Rock n Roll, Folk, Blues and whatever else they’ve been listening to recently. Bob Harris, Steve Lamacq, Cerys Matthews, Janice Long and Dermot O’Leary  have in turn all played tracks from the first two albums on BBC Radio. This has led to endless festival appearances across the UK including BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park, Boomtown Fair, Wilderness, Tramlines, Camp Bestival…

PHILIP J.NIXON is a deft finger-style guitarist, with songs in the vein of 60s output of Cohen and Simon & Garfunkel, with classical Spanish and Bossa Nova influences.
