The Roustabouts Collective are a group of cabaret performers and musicians based in Falmouth, Cornwall. When asked what music they play, you will often be met with a wonderful selection of genres from Balkan to Folk, Swing to Ska, Punk to Reggae; however the music is always high energy, gets the crowds dancing and maintains that immutable gypsy quality. The live band is at the core of the collective and has graced festival stages and events across the south west. This year is set to be their biggest yet with a full album in the pipelines and a summer of festivals including main stage slots secured at Grinagog Festival and Boomtown Fair.
Expect rich harmonies, fast-paced strumming, groovy bass lines, banging beats, virtuosic fiddle work, knees-up squeezebox merriment, a bombastic trombone, hair-raising electric solos and a big slice of circus to top it all off!
