"The Folksoul Band is an overwhelming presence...Their sound instinctively reaches within a person to make them dance. In Nelson, it was not long before almost the entire audience was on it's feet moving around. The benches surrounding the stage were all but unnecessary." - The Monadnock Ledger-Transcript

Bio

The Folksoul band was formed by mixing two bands: Tattoo, a long-lived band that opened for The Grateful Dead in Oregon in the 1980's and partied with The Merry Pranksters, and the new group Lunatic Fringe (view EPK on Sonicbids). They''ve combined to create a joyful combination of New Orleans-based roots dance music--Now presenting themselves for the first time on Sonicbids.
It's a group of musicians that love to play together, playing American roots music that gets folks dancing--drawing from Mardi Gras dance music, the Wild Tchapitoulas, Fats Domino, and their own originals. The Folksoul Band uses a unique collection of acoustic instruments, mixing the brass of a New Orleans street band, with the folk sounds of guitar and accordian. Add the African balafon and percussion, and you create a wondrous mix of sounds, on top of which is added some stellar vocalists.
Adding new impulses to old traditions, The Folksoul Band brings new life to roots music.
Coming from the beautiful Monadnock Region of southern New Hampshire.
