Margate’s ‘broken folk’ duo LUNATRAKTORS (GB) fuse body percussion, harmonic singing, tap-dance and tuned drums to create dark, playful re-workings of the folk archive.
They strip folksong back to its raw elements of rhythm and voice, entirely reworking traditional ballads. They were featured in the MOJO writers top ten folk albums last year and were due to headline a stage at the Leigh Folk Festival this summer
