Event details

With a career spanning over 40 years, The Blow Monkeys continue to make new music, always stretching their own musical boundaries.

With worldwide hits such as the classics 'Digging Your Scene' and 'It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way', they became household names, but there was always so much more going on with these simian soulsters.

Back in the 80s they worked with people as varied as Curtis Mayfield, Paul Weller, Cheb Khaled and even Jamaican Toaster EEK-A-Mouse! "No band since The Clash in their early 80s heyday had attempted to act as a sounding board for such politically engaged, eclectic music”. Dr Robert even took time out to release one of the UK’s first homegrown ‘house’ records, 'Wait', his Top 5 duet with Chicago soul diva Kym Maselle.

Reformed in 2008 The Blow Monkeys have been incredibly productive releasing six new albums and playing hundreds of concerts. These Monkeys continue to evolve. From their beginnings on the underground club scene right through to their appearance on the biggest selling soundtrack of all time, Dirty Dancing ('You Don’t Own Me') and beyond. Long may they swing.

Plus support from Burr Island, an Alternative Indie Folk duo from the West Country. Their close harmonies are complemented by introspective lyrics as they take you on an intimate, melodic journey in search of meaning and value.
