Eclectic, original and damn good fun, Cornwalls’ Three Daft Monkeys combine foot stomping celtic, world, Spanish and good old twiddly folk rythms into their melting pot of startingly original songs. They have that knack, that the Levellers also posess, of being able to match serious lyrics to upbeat music.
Darlings of the festival scene all over Europe, they always deliver a stunning set that defies you not to dance. Accomplished musicians with a background in dance, ska and traditional folk; they create contemporary world music not constrained by ‘tradition’, but always informed by it.
