Bonfire Radicals

The electrifying sound of Birmingham’s fiery, (un)traditional folk band Bonfire Radicals is both intensely creative and irresistibly fun.

Their live set is a frenzy of energy – “dynamic and high octane” (Fatea Magazine) – and captures the adventurous breadth of their musical imaginations which emerge from a melting pot of original and traditional tunes from the British Isles to the Balkans. Rhythmic grooves, instrumental fireworks, rich vocal harmonies and delicate a cappella all collide and explode into a “crashing rollercoaster of sound…alive with possibility and thrills” (Folk Radio).

“A serious powerhouse of a performance … foot-stomping and adrenalin-powered and came on like folk music played by ravers.” – The Artsdesk ★★★★

“With an electrifying global sound, the Radicals deliver a swaggering, sweaty set guaranteed to get listeners up and dancing. Exhilarating and exuberant” – Songlines ★★★★
