Molly Bloom threw a heap of exotic ingredients into the mix, blasting out a unique folk / punk / medieval / metal sound that sets them apart from the hordes of bands intent on being the next Sabbath, or whoever. Playing cheekily with various genres to drive out their own special sound.
Subversive and truly original sounding they are a wicked party band and would really suit a festival environment
Lauren C, Get Your Rock Out
To spice things up, the Ladybird Tent host their final act, Molly Bloom , a band with a fascinating line-up (flute, classical guitar, drums and bass). As Molly Bloom are especially unique it seems churlish to compare them to any other act, but there are hints of New Model Army and Jethro Tull poured into a bucket of prog and grunge with a gypsy folk and reggae seasoning. It's exciting, powerful stuff, as the motoring mix of stalwart fans and animated newcomers lap up the dexterity of the guitarist and the snarling melodies of their singer.

“To hear music that takes so much that is familiar and goes in a substantially different direction with it is refreshing..”
Tom Karr, Progressive World
It's fresh, reinvigorating and full with invention

They have been together as the band for twelve years now and have always wrote and performed their own original material. The band consists of Flute, Classical Guitar, Drums and Bass. Playing both acoustically and “plugged in” over the years have gathered a good fan base from all ages.
Taken their music out on the road to their own audiences and played alongside others such as Focus, Men they couldn't hang, Flook, Three Daft Monkeys amongst others, Played various Festivals up and down the country from Eden in Scotland to more local ones like Ramsbottom Festival where they were invited to open up the very first festival last year on the main stage that hosted later The Animals and The Waterboys. Invited back again the year later for a headline slot on the Saturday evening on one of the smaller stages .
“We made some new fans and received some great feedback from the people who saw us the year before and some even said they came back again on the strength we were on the bill once again.” “We like to think of our music as energy packed with a definite dark twist to the lyrical stories. There are always plenty of people dancing and chanting to our songs who have been fans of us for years and people who meet us for the first time usually get involved a couple of tracks into the set. We always have fun at our gigs and the fans always make a gig a memorable one”.
