Join this nationally acclaimed seven-piece gypsy folk-rock band from Newcastle Upon Tyne for an evening of lively music and tall tales. Influenced by an eclectic range of music, HMATC play an exciting and visceral blend of rock, pop, folk, blues, Balkan, klezmer, ska and reggae. In the perfect collision of rowdy tunes, pumping danceability and compelling storytelling, this wrangling folk group present a medley of original songs and old time drinking tunes, both hilarious and thrilling, and sure to entertain!
HMATC released their album ‘Salem' in July 2017, receiving acclaimed reviews and radio play from several stations. The band have toured the UK twice, selling out venues across the country and appearing at festivals including Glastonbury, Boomtown Fair, Bestival and Beautiful Days. 'Salem's' lead single, the barnstorming indie-rock anthem ‘Cold Comfort Lane', was used for the end credits for the 2018 blockbuster movie Oceans 8. Now HMATC are heading back out on the world stage with a brand new album which launches in the Spring. Come along for the ride; the craziest party in town always has room for one more! Touring Dorset with Artsreach, the counties touring arts charity.
