Monkey See Monkey Do


Monkey See Monkey Do is a bunch of trained primates from the urban jungles of Southampton, who go bananas for folk-ish music with influences from bluegrass to Irish trad.
Monkey See Monkey Do met in Southampton’s bustling folk scene. Fiddle, guitar, bodhran, clarinet and the occasional squeeze of melodeon come together as the band take material from a wealth of folk traditions and make it their own, from songs about pirates’ escapades to foot-tapping jigs and reels. Last year, their debut album, The Night Out, received critical acclaim from the likes of Mike Harding, Songlines and FATEA and was described as ‘a genuine delight’. It’s onwards and upwards for this band!
