Join Honeyfeet as they celebrate the launch of their second album, Orange Whip! For a good few years, Honeyfeet has been a conduit for the ideas and expressions of an exotic mixture of Manchester-based musicians. Jazz? Yes, some of that! Folk? Stick that in there! Hip-hop? I thought you’d never ask!
Someone once called it Folk-Hop and Barrelhouse-pop, and that’s just vague enough to make sense. Honeyfeet have spent the past nine years tearing around festival stages and theatres, clubs and fields melting down blues and pop, jazz and disco, pushing air molecules around with instruments and making friends in the process. It’s all very lovely. It helps that they are fronted by Ri?oghnach Connolly, ‘a remarkable singer and flautist who… can ease from Irish traditional influences to soul,’ according to the Guardian.
This festival season has seen Honeyfeet perform main stages at Shambala, Beautiful Days and Belgium’s Copacobana Festival, along with wowing audiences at Glastonbury, Boomtown, Wilderness, Secret Garden Party, Kendal Calling and Bimble Bandada.
Honeyfeet are proud to be part of the Wah Wah 45 family. The single Sinner was released in October 2017, with Whatever You Do following in early March 2018. Their new album, Orange Whip, will be launched in late March 2018.
