THE MACCAFERRI CLUB
Folk. Gypsy Jazz. Klezmer
With influences ranging from traditional folk music to the success of contemporary ensembles such as Lau and the Old Dance School, fused with a uniquely varied set of musical pedigrees, from intense classical study to jazz and experimental electronic music, the group possess a distinctly captivating and energetic sound. The ensemble met at Trinity College of Music, where they continue to deepen their love and understanding of music.
The band's intricate arrangements are masterminded by guitarist and vocalist Danny Wallington, whose energy and passion for music colour every aspect of the band's performance. Violinist Connie Chatwin, recipient of a full scholarship to Trinity College of Music, brings her individual blend of classical discipline and zaniness, combined with an impressive history of performing experience. The band's technical needs are masterminded by bassist Ben Hayes, whose audio experience results in enviable recordings and a polished live sound. Holding the operation together with his incessant groove is drummer and percussionist Jake Long, whose diverse musical background ranges from jazz to rock to from underground hip-hop to cutting-edge indie music.
Medieval inspired Celtic five piece band Perkelt are all the way from the Czech Republic and are made up of Stepan Honc on guitar and cittern, plus Pavlina Bastlova on flute and vocals. Their progressive speedy Celtic folk is progressive, abundant in energy whilst still capturing an authentic traditional Celtic musical style.
