Skutch Manos + Bohemianauts + Mini Da Minx

April 30, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - May 1, 2016 @ 2:00 am

 

Skutch Manos offer a beautiful and hypnotic clash of classical Spanish and British instrumental acoustic folk, sometimes heavy, sometimes soft, but always heartfelt! Think Rodrigo y Gabriela, John Williams, Ozric Tentacles, John Mclaughlin and Led Zeppelin all rolled in to one: a deadly and rhythmic combination of percussion, guitar and double bass.

Skutch Manos were formed in 2011 by classical guitarist Arlen Connelly (formerly The Acoustic Conquistador) and Brazilian percussionist Holly Prest after meeting as different acts at Manchester’s popular Food and Drink Festival. The band soon became 3 in 2012 with the addition of jazz double bassist Grant Russell and have found hard followers from music hot spots such as Band on the Wall an Matt and Phreds. Their compositions are often dynamically expansive, well embellished and best served live!

 

 

 

The Bohemianauts

 

A bohemianaut is one who travels through uncharted spaces towards some notion of “bohemia”, and The Bohemianauts are a mutable combo of such travellers, playing and singing as they go.

These guys are delightfully twisted band of gypsy music-makers whose sounds would fit in perfectly at an old ramshackle circus. As a newfound project of Tom Baker, accordionist in the group formerly known as Fantasmagoria, The Bohemianauts have a unique stage presence reminiscent of Gypsy vaudeville, with elements of ‘bastard cabaret and songs of unrequited dread’ thrown in for good measure.

With Tom Baker on accordion, Raf Lijtman on guitar, Laurence Eliott-Potter on piano, Nick Doyne-Ditmas on double bass, and a variety of other musicians coming and going depending on the performance, expect a fantastical and all-round eccentric take on old gypsy songwriting.
