The People's String Foundation

plus Special Guests

3 Daft Monkeys

The People's String Foundation mix passionate theatrics with an urban gypsy sound.


Led by Ben Sutcliffe (musical director for Rogue, Kneehigh and Bish Bash Bosh Theatre companies) who's virtuoso violin styles have landed him to play with the likes of The Levellers, The Stranglers, The Yardbirds and Gary Stringer from Reef.

Mixing artisan flavours with urban/world beats and a band that expands into a 24 piece orchestra, The People's String Foundation are fast being recognised as the heavyweights of the South West.

As well as touring the festival and theatre circuits as a seven piece band they encompass a grass roots philosophy, working with the community and schools alike to promote local music and arts.

Early 2013 they launched the 24 piece Orchestra at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall. These rare performances harness the power of "the collective" which is a group of like-minded musicians they have met on their travels.

The People's String Foundation are on a mission - to make something big and beautiful with nothing but heart and a grafter's spirit. Their anti-corporate ethos make them the local heroes the community deserves as they have and always will rely solely on the public's support.

Tonight's concert has 3 Daft Monkeys as special guests!!

3 Daft Monkeys bring their quirky and original approach to music back to their home county of Cornwall after a whirlwind summer of international gigs and festivals.

In their famously dynamic live performances, you will hear songs from their award-winning brand new album Of Stones and Bones, a collection of old, new and fictional Cornish tales of forbidden love, murder, rebellion, witchcraft and piracy.

With a new 4 piece line up including percussion and 3 part harmonies, frenetic fiddling and 12 string guitar, and with Celtic and eastern influences, the 3 Daft Monkeys dynamic style of world-influenced folk music and infectious dancing rhythms, will leave you breathless, enthralled and exhilarated.

The desire to dance is irresistible.
