Someone once referred to Honeyfeet’s sound as a mix of Folk-Hop and Barrelhouse-pop, and that’s just vague enough to make sense. Honeyfeet have spent the past 9 years tearing around festival stages and theatres, clubs and fields melting down blues and pop, jazz and disco, pushing air molecules around with instruments and making friends in the process. It’s all very lovely and it helps that they are fronted by Ríoghnach Connolly “a remarkable singer and flautist who…can ease from Irish traditional influences to soul” (The Guardian). Her sultry vocals draw the crowd in every time.
Featuring some of the most prominent musicians from Manchester’s Folk music scene, Connolly presents a show where roots music and folk traditions stand side by side. Honeyfeet have performed on the main stages of Shambala, Beautiful Days, and Belgium’s Copacobana Festival, along with wowing audiences at Glastonbury, Boomtown, Wilderness, Secret Garden Party, Kendal Calling and Bimble Bandada.
Honeyfeet’s new album, Orange Whip, came out on Wah Wah 45s in March 2018. It was BBC 6 Music’s Album of the Day in April 2018. The band have also recently performed a live session for Craig Charles’ Funk & Soul Show on 6 Music.
They have a great time on stage and they’d love you to come and enjoy it with them at Knockengorroch!
