Artist Or Band Category: Folk
Mudskippers compose beautifully rich songs influenced by many modern English folk legends as well as indie, progressive folk/rock and world music. Described as a band that you would “really enjoy listening to at a festival with a beer”, Mudskipper’s absorbing compositions will take you through a dynamic musical journey.
In their softer numbers, the unusual but perfect combination of clarinet and cello provide a backdrop of beautiful harmonies that weave through Bully’s ethereal singing. Likened to Nick Drake, their contemporary/progressive folk influences shine through strongly.
Indie pop, punk and progressive rock influences often entail a switch to saxophone or penny whistle, percussive cello chops, strummed guitar and emotional vocal explosion for more lively songs that will get your foot tapping.
Appearances at various venues and festivals in and around Exeter, coupled with local radio play and interviews have seen Mudskippers building a reputation as one of South West England’s acoustic acts to watch.
