Holy Moly and the Crackers
Holy Moly and the Crackers are a “gypsy folk and roll” band from Newcastle Upon Tyne. Having toured the UK and beyond, they are making a huge impact on both the national and international circuits with their energetic and anarchic live show - Expect reeling fiddles, pounding accordions and foot-stomping madness. They are influenced by an eclectic range of styles and artists; the honest grit and gravel of Woody Guthrie, the gypsy bone-cage burlesque of Gogol Bordello, the spectral clarity of Ane Brun: They play a lively mix of Romani, Americana and contemporary British folk-rock.
Check out their album First Avenue, and follow-up EP Lilly, to discover just why this high-flying circus of a band have become so beloved in recent years.
