The Rhythm Hut is very excited to welcome back our very favourite chainsaw folk foursome - The Crooked Fiddle Band.

Who are tCFB?
The Crooked Fiddle Band are based in Sydney, Australia, and formed in 2006 through their mutual love of the energy and intensity of various traditional world music.

Whilst writing and arranging, they discovered that this energy was shared by the other music they love: there seems to be a common thread between the frenetic accompaniment of gypsy, klezmer and punk rock; between the twisting rhythms of math-metal and balkan folk; between the clear tonalities of Scandinavian folk, Celtic folk, and cinematic post rock.

All these influences went into the mix, but what came out was The Crooked Fiddle Band. The sound is dark and often driving, but also writhing and ecstatic. They’ve jumped around with whirling crowds at festivals, bars and dirty warehouse parties throughout Europe and Australia and also played our more cinematic sounds in the Opera Theatre of the Sydney Opera House.

"The Crooked Fiddle Band have released the soundtrack to the coming apocalypse... where symphonic metal meets acoustic folk-punk in soaring, neo-classical art-rock, with sepulchral gothic overtones... an extraordinarily rich, and expressive release." - Matthew Stoff, 4ZZZ (3 October 2013)

"...showcases fierce, perforating drums, soaring bow-work and the heaviest breakdown to ever be played by wooden instruments... Their performances are so energetic and unfathomably tight that it’s difficult not to have a good time... For anyone who is interested in blowing out their musical horizons, , The Crooked Fiddle Band are pretty right on." : Leigh MacDonald, Tone Deaf (8 October 2013 )
