Brixton based instrumental quartet Kneytsh have evolved a singular, unpretentious and gleefully non purist approach to playing music from all over the place since their formation a few years back. A Kneytsh set can include bits of bluegrass, klezmer, 70s film soundtracks, jazz and even a piece extracted from a 15th century painting by Heironymus Bosch. Their philosophy is that if it sounds good, then it is good. As the various band member’s CVs include playing Irish trad, experimental jazz and electronica and even a spell in a Mrs Mills cover band, it’s maybe no surprise that their approach should be so eclectic, twisted and slightly irreverent. By turns dreamy, psychedelic and propulsive, Kneytsh’s sound might annoy the purists but will captivate the open minded.

They are
Hannah Fisher (fiddle, accordion, mandolin)
Owen Llewellyn (mandolin, tenor banjo)
Peter Marsh (lapsteel guitar, 5 string banjo)
Adam Royffe (double bass)
