Musical melting-pot in store with Forest of Fools concert

‘Jump-up folk’ pioneers Forest of Fools take to the stage in The College Arms in Cranfield on Friday January 15.

The band dare to step outside of the established traditions of folk music with influences including jazz, world music, funk, drum and bass and a touch of the Classical. Their high-energy music is spliced with cunning arrangements and intricate melodies.

Audiences can expect sousaphone and didgeridoo-driven bass overlain with high-tempo folk-riffs.

In the first six months of the band playing live, they have shared the stage with the likes of Babar Luck, The Mouse Outfit, Inla’kesh, The Cracked and TradARRR.

Forest of Fools have multiple bookings for festivals this year and have their second album due for release soon.

They will play as part of Forest Folk and Roots’ continuing season of live acoustic music events at The College Arms.

Doors open at 7.30pm with live music from 8pm,

Tickets are priced £10 or £5 for students and are available from the venue or online at
