We’re delighted to be presenting ‘an evening with’ Honeyfeet – at St Michael’s in Ancoats!

Join Honeyfeet as they celebrate the release of their single Sinner on Wah Wah 45s! For a good few years, Honeyfeet has been a conduit for the ideas and expressions of an exotic mixture of Manchester-based musicians. Jazz? Yes, some of that! Folk? Stick that in there! Hip-hop? I thought you’d never ask!

Someone once called it Folk-Hop and Barrelhouse-pop, and that’s just vague enough to make sense. Honeyfeet have spent the past nine years tearing around festival stages and theatres, clubs and fields melting down blues and pop, jazz and disco, pushing air molecules around with instruments and making friends in the process. It’s all very lovely. It helps that they are fronted by Ri?oghnach Connolly, ‘a remarkable singer and flautist who… can ease from Irish traditional influences to soul,’ according to the Guardian.

This festival season has seen Honeyfeet perform main stages at Shambala, Beautiful Days and Belgium’s Copacobana Festival, along with wowing audiences at Glastonbury, Boomtown, Wilderness, Secret Garden Party, Kendal Calling and Bimble Bandada.

Honeyfeet released the album It’s a Good Job I Love You in November 2013. Their new single Sinner was released in October 2017 on Wah Wah 45s. Their new album, Orange Whip, will be launched in March 2018.

This show will be ‘an evening with’ Honeyfeet – featuring two sets by the band, of songs old and new.

This will be one of the first public concerts in St Michael’s since its recent re-opening, having been closed since 2004. The Roman Catholic church was founded in 1859 and became the heart of the Little Italy Community in Ancoats.

AGE RESTRICTION: This show is 14+. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
