The Eskies

14.20-15.05, Stage 1 • Sunday

Purveyors of music that meanders from sea soaked waltz to Italian tarantella, from Brassy funeral march-esque lament to weep along Klezmar knees up, from chain gang holler to rag time finger snap,  The Eskies skip through the dark side of  anything that makes you want to dance, seeped in melodrama and usually with not a small amount of tongue in cheek. The Eskies have brought this unique brand of folk noir/gypsy jazz/sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle to ballrooms and booze houses far and wide, sullying soirees and lowering inhibitions of get togethers and social occasions wherever they have ventured.
