Holy Moly and the Crackers

“They are a bunch of wild gypsy troubadours with more than a touch of magic about them. Every song is a powerhouse of storytelling and compelling musical arrangement.” Diva Publications

Described as gypsy folk & roll, Holy Moly and the Crackers are one of hardest working bands on the circuit with a growing and loyal fan base. Over the past two years they have toured the UK extensively, and made impressive debuts in France, Germany and Holland. Their festival appearances include Glastonbury, Cornbury, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown Fair, Wilderness, Larmer Tree, Kendal Calling, Underneath The Stars, Belladrum, Just So, Wickham, Towersey and many more.

They are making an impact on both the national and international tour circuit; they have played well over 200 shows throughout the UK, including sell out concerts in London, the Midlands, Yorkshire, Newcastle and Edinburgh.

In April 2017 the band toured the UK and Europe in anticipation of the release of their brand new album “Salem” (July 2017). The new album is their second and is produced by Matt Terry (The Enemy, We’ll Live and Die in these Towns).

Holy Moly and the Crackers are influenced by an eclectic range of styles and artists – the honest grit and gravel of Woody Guthrie, the gypsy bone-cage burlesque of Gogol Bordello: punk, ska, reggae, folk, blues, honky-tonk, Balkan etc. As such they play a unique mash-up of folk/blues, waltz tempos and hoe-downs and French zazou in outlandish carnival style. It is loud, funky and fun.

“Completely at home in a smoke filled juke joint in New Orleans.” Narc

“Stylistically dazzling … the group really does stand out from the crowd.” Bright Young Folk

“One of this year’s surprise hits was the Newcastle-based seven-piece band Holy Moly and the Crackers, who opened the Main Stage … With their own mixture of gypsy folk, New Orleans brass-laced jazz, Jewish Klezmer and Jamaican Ska, the band stormed the marquee with a lively set of songs.” Northern Sky, Beverley Folk Festival
