Green Man Folk Club
Hampshire based Threepenny Bit are an example of how traditional dance tunes and contemporary sounds can be blended into a fresh interpretation of folk music. This dynamic eight-piece band combines a group of diehard folkies with some of the finest young jaz and classical musicians in the south. They play bold arrangements of traditional amd original tunes with infectious stage energy for concerts and ceilidh dancing. The bands diverse influences enable them to explore traditional music without restraint, and with their impressive line up of saxaphone, clarinet, bass guitar and drums, alongside accordion, flute, violin and guitar, Threepenny Bit create an unparalleled wall of sound. Their approach has led to regular appearances across the length and breadth of the UK folk scene in recent years, always providing an "all out musical bombardment"
