Holy Moly and The Crackers heading to Pocklington Arts Centre

Known for their blazing live shows Holy Moly and The Crackers will bring their unique blend of soul, rock, indie and Balkan folk to Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) later this year.

Holy Moly and The Crackers will play live at PAC on Saturday, October 16 as the venue resumes its events calendar.

The innovative and fiery folk-rockers from Newcastle are known for putting on a raucous, feel good party, and their live show at PAC on Saturday, October 16 (8pm) will be no exception.

PAC director Janet Farmer said: “Holy Moly and The Crackers always put on such an energetic, vivacious show featuring their unique sound that has our audiences foot stomping and dancing in the aisles so we can’t wait to welcome them back after their sold-out show back in February 2019.”

The band was formed almost by mistake, when Conrad Bird, Ruth Patterson and Rosie Bristow met at a house party in Leamington Spa. Enamoured by Rosie’s party-prop accordion, the three decided to start playing music together – mainly stomping folk and drinking songs as an alternative to “SMACK” – Leamington’s main student club, that was the only other option for a night out.

Since then they have sold out shows across the UK and Europe and graced the stages of innumerable festivals (Glastonbury, Bestival, Colours Of Ostrava (CZ) to name just a few.

The band were set to play 27 dates across 10 countries on their biggest European tour to date, as well as supporting Frank Turner across France and Germany (and Glastonbury) before Covid Struck.
