Unique sounds

It’s not the music you might expect from their name.

Would you really expect a band called Churchfitters to feature a bass guitar made from a frying pan?

Or combine foot-stomping fiddle-playing with a funk-rock bouzouki?

Or back traditional tunes with a jazz sax and vocals with a musical saw?

It might sound odd but the band has a fan in folk musician and broadcaster Mike Harding. He calls them “totally brilliant and beautiful.”

The three versatile musicians from France and England who make up Churchfitters add a flute, banjo, dulcimer, ukulele, and a stand-up dustbin bass - as well as a “bing-bong” machine made out of old hacksaw blades - to complete their distinctive sound.

Churchfitters appear in a Corn Hall on Tour concert at Garboldisham Village Hall on Sunday, March 6 at 8pm. Tickets are £10, or £9 concessions. Call 01379 652241 or go to www.disscornhall.co.uk
