Blending blues, folk, jazz and disco, folk-hop and barrelhouse-pop, Honeyfeet are a conduit for the ideas and expressions of an exotic mixture of Manchester based musicians and tonight they take over our ¡Viva! Fiesta Stage. Come dance, sing, be soulful and inspired. Honeyfeet are guaranteed to make you move.
17.00-17.30: Rik Warren
Old blues for a new day.
A plucky crew of instrument manglers, bashers and blowers bring together funky riffing, and jazzy noodling, and some of that “head-nod shiz”.
18.30-19.15: John Ellis
Sling play cosmic blues-kraut-hiphop-boogie from Manchester. Taking John Lee Hooker boogies and adding something a little different, so that every gig is like a juke joint in the cosmos. They bring grooves to make you swing and stomp!
20.15-20.45: Rioghnach Coinnolly
Armagh born singer and flautist strongly rooted in her trad Sean-nós background, Ríoghnach Connolly stirs elements of appalachia, blues and jazz into the folk archive.
Headlining the Honeyfeet collective takeover is the full band in all their folk-hop and barrelhouse-pop glory.
