The John Langan Band Press & Biog

'The John Langan Band offer a collection of songs and tunes that take us on a vertigo inducing reel around European and American acoustic traditions delivering with a jagged, punky and irresistible edge. That three guys from Glasgow could conspire to create such an immense sound between them is not unprecedented, but to achieve this with such lyrical and instrumental flair is a rare, rare thing' Neil McFadyen, Folk Radio UK
‘Astonishing work, boundlessly inventive... driving rhythms and mesmerising folk melodies' R2 Magazine
‘The band possess an originality and dramatic edge that pushes into new and highly energetic territory' Songlines Magazine, 4 stars`
‘Un-categorise able and irresistible’ Acoustic Magazine

Biog:

High energy, unhinged, and musically extravagant, taking traditional acoustic idioms and delivering with punk abandonment and virtuosic flare. A dynamic three piece offering a unique sound emerging from Celtic, Gypsy Swing, Roma and Flamenco and tuned in savvy.

Wrapping pan European traditional acoustic music with infectious grooves, epic, pounding, sing along, punch the air anthems to intricately arranged instrumentals.

Challenging the limitations of what people might expect acoustic instruments to sound like, the use of bowed harmonics between fiddle and bass can be as menacing and eerie as it can be psychedelic and mesmerising.

Percussion provided by the front man Langan, whilst singing and driving the rhythm guitar, he somehow co-ordinates the operating of a Cajon and a tambourine with his feet bringing the driving, swinging groove of the rhythm guitar together with his foot percussion resulting in an impressively tight band sound with a tempo that is free to go anywhere. Add scorching hot fiddle lines and a guy thumping the groove out a double bass
