The Demon Barber Roadshow will perform at Derby Theatre for one night only on Friday, July 8, where they will team up with some of England’s most exciting young traditional dancers to create a high energy music and dance spectacular.
Youthful, enthralling, charismatic, and with bags of attitude, The Demon Barbers combine solid traditional acoustic instruments and songs with the added oomph of a superbly tight rhythm section.
Energetic fiddle and passionate, distinctive vocals ‘with driven tunes and songs, drum ‘n’ bass grooves, the odd touch of ska and an ever present feel.
Over the last nine years The Demon Barbers have gained major recognition for their original and imaginative approach to traditional music and song. They take mainly traditional ballads, strange tales of myth and magic and coil them, twist them, make them stranger, darker, becoming tales of Gothic danger; they don’t so much make folk rock as make traditional tales quiver and pulse with electricity.
Tickets cost £15, concessions £13. For more information and to book tickets call the Derby LIVE Box Office on 01332 255800 or visit www.derbylive.co.uk.
