The Demon Barbers XL offer a ‘no holds barred’ folk extravaganza at the Martlets Hall, Burgess Hill, on Saturday, October 15.

The musicians are renowned for their maverick approach to live gigs.

They return to the concert stage this autumn with a new repertoire, extra band members and a modern twist to their multi-award winning roadshow.

Since winning Best Live Act at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, The Demon Barbers have been immersed in the development of their folk &amp, hip-hop dance extravaganza The Lock In.

Following successful UK tours, including shows at Glastonbury Festival and five-star reviews for their run at Edinburgh Fringe, The Demon Barbers now bring some of the UK’s most exciting young clog, sword and break dancers onto the concert stage.

Combining traditional acoustic instruments and songs with a tight rhythm section, they aim to create a unique and captivating sound. Energetic fiddle and passionate vocals combine for punchy tunes, drum ’n’ bass grooves and the occasional hint of ska.

Organisers are urging music lovers to book their tickets for an evening of floor-shaking sounds.

Tickets cost £14 or £12 (£7 for those aged 16 and under) and are on sale at www.martletshall.org. Alternatively, call 01444 242888 or drop in to the box office at Martlets Hall, Civic Way, Burgess Hill.
