Hampshire-based Threepenny Bit are an example of how traditional dance tunes and contemporary sounds can be blended into a fresh interpretation of folk music. This dynamic eight-piece band combines a group of diehard folkies with some of the finest young jazz and classical musicians in the south.
They play bold arrangements of traditional and original tunes with infectious stage energy for concerts and ceilidh dancing.
‘Bursting with energy’ – Martin Chilton, The Telegraph
‘It’s addictive stuff as forays into rock and jazz blend with interpretations of trad British Dances’ –
‘The most head-spinningly original album to emerge from the current crop of young folk collectives this year. Forget nodding along approvingly, this is an all-out musical bombardment’ –
Rob Fearnly, Bright Young Folk
