forest of fools’ unusual synergy of traditional instruments and broad ranging musical influence has seen the creation of an entirely new genre.

Bringing an eclectic mash-up of folk, funk, punk and drum and bass to the table, we give you Jump-up Folk. With quirky time signatures and bass rocking drops, this new wave of unique compositions demands your attention and it’s easy to see why this band are rapidly being catapulted to the forefront of the festival circuit and underground music scene. Dancing though the musical ages and defying conformity of tradition, in the blink of an eye you’ll be whisked from the courtyards of Medieval England and delivered to the rave rooms of the 90’s to join the Junglist Massive. A must-see live band, delivering high energy party music to the masses which will leave you smiling like the Cheshire Cat and skanking until the sun comes up.

"More than just good, a genre defining band. These guys are really fresh....fat drumlines, truly funked-up, sousaphone-driven bass, overlain with high-energy English folk riffs....Jump-up Folk. Highlight of our Summer Festival." Pony - Small World

“forest of fools, a superb fusion of antique music and 21st Century Stomp" Chris Tofu - Continental Drifts.
