Keston Cobblers Club at Gorilla, Manchester, 20 October 2017, from £17 - Book now

Folk-pop five-piece Keston Cobblers Club bring the party to Manchester Folk Festival with what promises to be a lively Friday night under Gorilla’s arches.

The group have steadily become festival favourites via appearances at Glastonbury, Bestival, Cambridge Folk Festival and Green Man, among others – and were invited to open for Bellowhead on their 2015 farewell tour. Their 2015 album, Wildfire, was described neatly as ‘rambunctious folk’.

Released in March, latest long-player Almost Home sees the band go back to basics, with songwriting based around the nostalgia of ‘home’ and ‘family’. Its sparse but effective arrangements are evidence of a maturing of the group, while they retain the upbeat folk elements that have gained them fans and critical praise over the years.

The band are joined by singer-songwriter and visual artist Jinnwoo, whose debut album featured contributions from Alistair Roberts, Malcolm Middleton and Kyla la Grange – plus Jack Rutter, the Yorkshire-raised multi-instrumentalist and BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award winner, who presents traditional songs in his solo guise.
