The Model Folk are a six piece band, hailing from the deepest darkest reaches of
North Somerset. We play rumbustious balkan inspired original folk. Entirely
acoustic, from the humble washboard and the throb of the double bass via the
wheezing of the harmonium and the shriek of the clarinet. With a chorus of voices
telling tales of steam, soviet farming machinery, 1930s drag queens, circuses and
tea. A ramshackle troupe of musicians, unafraid to fraternise with the audience,
whipping them into a frenzy of folk and roll.

The band have played a string of summer festival slots, including Purbeck Valley
Folk Festival, Folk on The Quay and Sidmouth Folk Festival where they ended up in
a butchers shop.
