Celebrate the Extra Bank Holiday with The Demon Barbers at The Met

The Met welcomes The Demon Barbers to celebrate the extra bank holiday this year on Friday 29 April at 8pm.

\”The Demon Barbers are 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\” – Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2

Youthful, enthralling, charismatic, and with bags of attitude, The Demon Barbers combine solid traditional acoustic instruments and songs with the added oomph of a superbly tight rhythm section, making 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

Over the last five years The Demon Barbers have gained major recognition for their original and imaginative approach to traditional music and song. They take mainly traditional ballads, strange tales of myth and magic and coil them, twist them, make them stranger, darker, becoming tales of Gothic danger; they don\’t so much make folk rock as make traditional tales quiver and pulse with electricity.

Their new album, the Adventures of Captain Ward was released last year to great critical acclaim. It went into Mike Harding\’s top ten albums of 2010.

Tickets for the show are £12 seated and £10 standing. To book or for more information please call the ticket office on 0161 761 2216 or go on line www.themet.biz
