Antipodeans on tour!

  The Spooky Mens Chorale - Tool photo (1.3MB)  The Spooky Men’s Chorale are the gift that keeps on giving… as thunderous as a herd of wildebeest, as sly as a wagonload of Spike Milligans and as sonorous as a cloister of monks. The manchoir emerged blinking-eyed from the Blue Mountains of NSW fifteen years ago and armed with no more than their impressively cavernous vocal chords, a nice line in deadpan, improbable facial hair and an ill-matched set of hats, have been gleefully wooing audiences throughout Australia, NZ and the UK ever since. Renowned for a combination of Visigothic bravado, absurdist humour and eye-moistening tenderness, the Spookies, in middle age, are more masters of their territory than ever before, with five critically-acclaimed albums under their belt. For their 2017 UK tour, they will revisit their much loved b(l)ack-catalogue, forays into immense Georgian anthems, tender arrangements of traditional and contemporary classics, their own uniquely entertaining songs and choreography.  Their last UK tour saw a large number of sell-out concerts at major venues and a whole raft of ecstatic festival audience reactions. You must see them. Really, you must….and you can – at Ely Folk Festival. It would be a crime not to.
