KIDNAP ALICE

– PLAY THE FRONT BAR –

7pm – FREE ENTRY

 

 

 

“Astonishingly brilliant” Max Reinhardt

A smokin’ band from East London, mixing up bluegrass, old time, blues and folk. With soulful vocals and tight arrangements from a classic acoustic line
up, Kidnap Alice bridge the gap between vintage R’n’B and Appalachian mountain music.
Kidnap Alice had their debut festival performance at Glastonbury 2010, opening the Club DaDa stage for the legendary Thursday Night Hoe Down before playing several gigs around the festival. In 2010 the band performed at many other events including LoveBox, Secret Garden Party, Bestival, the Big Chill, the Green Man and the National Theatre Alternative Village Fete.

In 2011 the band completed another heaving summer schedule, playing many more festivals, both mainstream and niche Bluegrass/Folk. They also undertook two rural tours of the West Country.

In April 2011, the band released their self-titled, debut album.

2012 has included a Global Local supported national Tour, another summer of festivals – in beautiful Italy and Switzerland as well the well-trodden UK
circuit.

‘Kidnap Alice are among the happy crop of UK-based bluegrass bands that would add spirit to any festival or club bill. In condensed CD form, there is ample evidence of intelligent songwriting, brooding smoky ballads and both sensitive and butane-propelled instrumental playing.’
