The Churchfitters at Croydon Folk Club, Monday 11th March, 8:15

The Churchfitters is a folk band like no other. A double bass made out of a saucepan. Heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw. Foot-stompingly fast fiddle mixed with infectious funk-rock rhythms.
And traditional tunes reinvigorated with mesmerising jazz sax.

The four virtuoso musicians from England and France strut their stuff on a stage bristling with instruments, 'normal' and 'eccentric', The latter include a bass made from a Mercedes Benz hub cap, a handsaw and a Bing Bong machine made from jig saw blades.
