Winners of ‘Best Live Act’ @ BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2009

Renowned for their no holds barred approach to their live shows The Demon Barbers return to the concert stage with a new repertoire, extra band members and a modern twist to their multi-award winning Roadshow.

Since winning ‘Best Live Act’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2009 The Demon Barbers have been immersed in the development of their Folk & Hip Hop Dance Extravaganza ‘The Lock In’. 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 concert 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.

“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” Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2
