Holy Moly & The Crackers is a seven-piece ‘Gypsy Folk Rock’ band from the UK. Founders – Conrad Bird, Ruth Patterson and ‘Squeezebox’ Rosie – lead the band with compelling charismatic style.
Influenced by an electric range of folk and popular music, Holy Moly & The Crackers play a moonshine mix of rock, pop, folk, blues, balkan, klezmer, ska, reggae etc. –
“We throw a whole load of genres into the mix. We describe ourselves as “gypsy folk rock”, but that’s a very loose term. And we’re changing and developing all the time. There’s a big beat; we like to make people dance. But, at the same time, the songs are built around narrative – I guess that’s why we’d class ourselves as a folk band, we like to tell stories” (Holy Moly & The Crackers)
