Leatherat formed in 2005 and quickly established themselves as a touring festival band playing unique, self-penned folk-rock music. Too folky for rock festivals, too rockin’ for folk festivals, Leatherat found their place playing amongst grass roots festivals where audiences enjoy a wide variety of music.
What can you expect from this act? Expect the unexpected! Frontman Pete Bailey imbues an infectious energy throughout the band’s performance, furious fiddle playing, exquisite lead and rhythm players, all with many years of performing experience under their belts – a polished act, deliberately and unapologetically rough around the edges. The band says “Bring dancing shoes…. For those about to folk, we salute you!”
