Holy Moly & The Crackers are a seven-piece 'gypsy folk'n'roll' band who are influenced by an eclectic range of styles and artists - the honest grit and gravel of Woody Guthrie, the gypsy bone-cage burlesque of Gogol Bordello: punk, ska, reggae, folk, blues, honky-tonk, Balkan. As such they play a unique mash-up of folk/blues, waltz tempos and hoe-downs and french zazou in outlandish carnival style. It is loud, funky and fun.
Flats and Sharps blur the lines between bluegrass, folk, country & pop, gaining recognition for performing their own highly original songs as well as their renditions of bluegrass classics.
'...effortlessly entertaining...sublime five part harmonies...the pace of their performance is breathtaking'Mark Ellen - R2 Magazine
