Ringlefinch formed in December 2012 at the exact moment the Mayans had predicted the world would end. A London seven-piece, they’re not what you'd expect from a band named after a kind of Norwegian troll, or from a band whose first live show was in the room where Churchill celebrated the end of the Second World War.
But what should you expect if you mix a banjo and ukulele-juggling singer-songwriter, a flamenco percussionist, a trad folk guitarist, a classical string
section, and a bassist and a mandolinist united in their love of alternative rock?
Dark-humoured, wittily introspective lyrics set to upbeat, quirky earworm tunes...
The toe-tapping rhythms of swing and jazz manouche - but with a thoroughly folk sensibility...
And an exciting, rabble-rousing live show, peppered with moments of subtle beauty and uplifting arrangements!
Ringlefinch ambled onto the London folk scene in summer 2013 like Godzilla in a party mood, and in no time at all they were headlining stages across the city. They've played at venues and festivals across the country, including the Natural History Museum, the Edinburgh Fringe, and numerous OxJam headlines, and are a core part of the scene built around boutique record
label The Folkroom. With over 80 live shows under their belts, they've developed a strong reputation for an energetic 26-string sound that has been described variously as "joyful, joyful rambunctious glory!" and "a lovely heartwarming clusterpluck".
Thrilling live shows - quirky self-made music videos - a distinctive genre-crossing sound - this is one musical casserole that's far greater than the sum of its ingredients.
