After selling out prestigious venues such as Band On The Wall and Gorilla, HONEYFEET will bring their ever evolved and intricate sound into the historic, yet intimate surroundings of Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre on 17th February.
For a good few years, Honeyfeet has been a conduit for the ideas and expressions of an exotic mixture of Manchester based musicians. Jazz? Yes, some of that! Folk? Stick that in there! Hip-hop? I thought you’d never ask!
Someone once called it Folk-Hop and Barrelhouse-pop, and that’s just vague enough to make sense. Honeyfeet have spent the past 9 years tearing around festival stages and theatres, clubs and fields melting down blues and pop, jazz and disco, pushing air molecules around with instruments and making friends in the process. It’s all very lovely. It helps that they are fronted by Ríoghnach Connolly “a remarkable singer and flautist who…can ease from Irish traditional influences to soul” (The Guardian).
In recent year, Honeyfeet have performed main stages at Shambala, Beautiful Days, and Belgium’s Copacobana Festival, along with wowing audiences at Glastonbury, Boomtown, Wilderness, Germany’s Kultursommer, Kendal Calling and Bimble Bandada, as well as selling out shows across the country.
Honeyfeet’s acclaimed album, Orange Whip, came out on Wah Wah 45s in March 2018. It was BBC 6 Music’s Album of the Day in April 2018. The band have also recently performed a live session for Craig Charles’ Funk & Soul Show on 6 Music. For more information:
