The Churchfitters are playing at The Mill

A folk band like no other promise to beguile and entertain at The Mill in Banbury on Sunday.

The Churchfitters feature a double bass made out of a saucepan, heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw, foot-stompingly fast fiddle mixed with infectious funk-rock rhythms and traditional tunes reinvigorated with mesmerising jazz sax.

The three virtuoso musicians from England and France strut their stuff on a stage that bristles with instruments - adding flute, banjo, dulcimer, tin whistle, guitar, ukulele, electric hub-cap bass-bouzouki and a sackful of percussion to their ensemble. And them there’s the unique ‘bing-bong’ machine made out of hack-saw blades.

Throw in some exquisite harmonies, a slew of startlingly original songs and a few jokes that create instant rapport and you’ve got a high energy show that always leaves audiences cheering.

Tickets cost £14 or £12 for concessions. The concert is a seated event. Call 01295 279002 or visit www.
