Folks Night 3 Band Info
Wife of Cain –
Pat and Chris were best friends for 28 years before they finally got round to making music together. Having explored old-time gospel and blues they have started writing their own original material, in an increasingly varied range of styles.
Gally Canters –
Footstomping Folk from Ireland and elsewhere. Usually found in pubs around New Mills and Hayfield in Derbyshire.
Gypsy Jazz –
Dave Evans, Ian Wright and Mike Dexter traditional Gyspy jazz – Jazz Manouche, evoking the sounds of 1930’s Paris and Django Reinhardt.
Lazlo Baby are a Gypsy/folk/Balkanic/ska band providing energetic driving songs featuring accordion, cello, clarinet & sax.
Lazlo Baby formed seven years ago around three best mates who had come together from a general feeling of bonhomie and desire to create frantic DIY tunes inspired by the Balkan and gypsy traditions. This trio has stayed true, with the addition of drummer Jon (ex- External Menace) and cellist Adi (Adrianne Wininsky). Adi as a classically trained and highly polished cellist brings a bit of sophistication to our happy raggy band.
We have performed at a number of festivals over the years, such as Beatherder, Kendal Calling , Bands on the Hill, Just So Festival, Cloggerfest, Rustic Festival. Other festivals include Kendal Calling, Leamington Peace Festival, Dirty Weekend (punk rock), Off the Tracks.
We’re regulars on the Manchester Folk Train and are asked back every year to headline at the final gig of the New Mills Arts Festival week.
