“Raucous and eclectic... sheer merriment bundled into a gorgeous set of ideas and influences” - ★★★★ Songlines
The electrifying sound of 6 piece (un)traditional folk band Bonfire Radicals is both intensely creative and irresistibly fun. Expect the unexpected, with global grooves, instrumental fireworks, rich vocal harmonies and delicate a cappella emerging from a melting pot of original and traditional tunes from the British Isles to the Balkans. Emotive vocals, textural washes, intricate woodwind and contemporary fiddle are woven together over a pulsating backdrop of guitar, bass and drums.
"Quite staggeringly special"
David Kidman - Fatea Magazine
"Birmingham's finest progressive folk band". (Tradfolk)
"This is tradition woven into an uninhibited gathering of inspired originality". (FolkWords)
