Cut Throat Francis sing songs about failing to be successful, responsible grown-ups on folk instruments; sometimes in swing rhythms, and mostly with upbeat Eastern European flavours. So we’re a Bristol based Balkan swing band… kind of.
But they’re not folk songs in the traditional sense. We like loud and sweaty shows, even if every now and then we do slow, sad songs about ghosts or feeling sleepy.
This means we play anywhere and everywhere, from house parties to festival stages. We want to sing, dance and get drunk with you, so let’s have it! Let’s meet up in dingy cellars and soggy fields, let’s get drenched in beer and get our knees up off the ground, because what else are you doing with your evenings anyway?
