forest of fools know how to deliver a headline show and Jump-up Folk is but a glance at the enormity of what they are upon. With phenomenally tight live performances, if you get to see them, you’ll be smacked in the face by the happy-jack spirit they create on stage. Indulge yourself in one of life’s great little pleasures and witness something truly pioneering and fresh, that’s guaranteed to keep you dancing until dawn and wearing a smile all night.
“forest of fools – more than just good, a genre defining band. These guys are really fresh…fat drumlines, truly funked-up, sousaphone-driven bass, overlain with high-energy English folk riffs….Jump-up Folk. Highlight of our Summer Festival.”
Pony — Small World Festivals
“…forest of fools are a lovely bunch of fellows with a vibrant and lively performance of some wonderful and uniquely styled sounds. The brilliant divergence in sounds they produce made for a fantastic closing act for our stage…”
