Renowned for their no-holds-barred approach to their live shows ,The Demon Barbers return to the Costa del Folk with a new repertoire, extra band members and a modern twist to their multi-award winning Roadshow.
Following a number of successful UK tours, including high profile shows at Glastonbury Festival and 5 star reviews for their 2 week run at Edinburgh Fringe, The Demon Barbers now bring some of the UK’s most exciting young Clog, Sword, Hip Hop & Break dancers onto the Costa del Folk stage to create the live folk music & dance spectacular of the year!
The XL show will feature new material from their latest album ‘Disco At The Tavern’, a collaboration with Grammy & Emmy Award winners Donal Hodgson and Kipper, best known for their work with Sting.
Combining solid traditional acoustic instruments and songs with the added oomph of a superbly tight rhythm section they create a unique and captivating sound. Energetic fiddle and passionate, distinctive vocals ‘with driven punchy tunes and songs, drum ‘n’ bass grooves, the odd touch of ska and an ever present feel that this lot know how to party’ result in ‘one of the most exciting acts around… check them out….’ fRoots
“The inspiration comes from Damien Barber, front man of the award-winning folk band The Demon Barbers, who supply the floor-shaking live music that alone justifies the price of the ticket” The Independent review of The Lock In
“One of the best live bands I’ve ever seen. If you get a chance to see them – don’t miss it – they are brilliant” Costa del Folk compere, Mike Harding
