THE MODEL FOLK : 8pm
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 accordion 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 festival slots at Purbeck Valley Folk Festival, Folk on The Quay and Sidmouth Folk Festival where they played a guerrilla set in a butchers shop. They have also played impromptu sets on various trains on the Swanage Railway released on EP in 2013 called Travelling At The Speed of Cattle, An Album in 2015 Called The Great Pedants' Revolt and their latest album, Houses For Little Horses all on their own label Diabetic Horse Records.
