3 Daft Monkeys (music)

The big folk gig at Eastbourne Bandstand last summer was the delicious Seth Lakeman (yes, a bit of a crush!) who played two stomping sets. The venue is perfect for 'energetic folk' with plenty of room for dancing and a festival-type vibe from being outdoors!

This August, the equivalent band will be 3 Daft Monkeys. Their exhuberant shows have made them a popular band on the festival circuit and their well-crafted songs have drawn acclaim from the likes of 'Whispering' Bob Harris, Jo Whiley and Mike Harding. Also, they were winners of Best Live Act at the Hancock Awards 2011 and the Spiral Earth Awards 2011.

The band is Tim Ashton on Vocals, 12-String Guitar, Whistle and Foot Drum; Athene Roberts on Violin & Vocals; and Lukas Drinkwater on Bass Guitar & Backing Vocals. Lukas is a recent addition to the line-up as is the return of Richie Mulryne on percussion. Their most recent album, The Antiquated & The Arcane, draws heavily on their experiences gained through live performances and on the road, and was recorded in an authentic live studio setting.
