22:00 - The Baghdaddies

The Baghdaddies’ exuberant and rampant brand of world music is an exhilarating cocktail of Balkan melodies, ska and latin grooves; sizzling brass played with furious energy and theatrical humour, making them as unforgettable on stage as they are when performing as wandering brass troubadours.

They take themselves incredibly seriously so you don’t have to… a proper Newcastle institution, these engaging musical goons last played at Music on the Marr in 2011; we are delighted to have them back.

“‘The band has a particular flair for the Balkans and capture its frenetic energy and flamboyance wonderfully. There is also a fair share of klezmer, jazz, ska and punk – an anarchic fusion where Ivo Papasov meets The Clash meets The Beat’ ”— Songlines Magazine
