Demon Barbers steal folk festival show

19th August 2009

The Demon Barber Roadshow added some additional spice to this year's Bideford Folk Festival.

Morris dancing and compelling funky music characterised the performance of this quirky group, according to the North Devon Journal.

The group were described as the 'all-singing, all-dancing' party piece at the event and certainly invigorated the audience watching them, the newspaper reports.

Rapping, clog dancing and morris dancing are all included in the versatile repertoire performed by the band, that tours folk festivals throughout the UK.

This year's Bideford Folk Festival took place between August 10th and 16th, with dance, music and other performances keeping audiences entertained all week.

The event was preceded by the publication of The Ballad of Britain by Will Hodgkinson earlier this month, which replicates the journey of Victorian composer Cecil Sharp across the UK collecting folk songs at the beginning of the 20th century.

Hodgkinson takes a similar journey a century after Sharp completed his decade-long project and charts his exploration in this book.
