Acoustic festival of britain 2015

" FFA (festivals for all) finished the night with the frankly surreal The Big Fibbers. It would be rude not to. They are an established AFoB favourite and no wonder. Suitably barmy  but with a wickedly comic undercurrant of pathos thrown in the mix, they are two very funny and very entertaing coves" Barrie Dimond - festivalsforall.com

The Faux Fibbers

Welcome to The Big Fibbers      

A Riot of Absurdist Blues And Fabulist Folk ! 

Take one dancing fool who sings a bit and plays some strange wind instruments and a failed pantomime villain on accoustic guitar and you get some acoustic cabaret punked up pop - whatever that is.

The Big Fibbers - a dangerously different duo from a dark kettle of fish. They write songs about booze, madness, the ghosts of love, aliens, fish and even more booze.
One of the most energetic acoustic acts on the circuit - driven by Michael McDonough Jones' explosive and dynamic guitar playing, whilst colourful frontman Nigel Knapp entertains any and every audience.
And the onstage banter - between themselves and the crowd - is unusally worth listening to: sometimes comic, sometimes sad, quite often surreal and almost always in English.
From the sublime to the ridiculous they fall somewhere between humour and despair with bits of mayhem and beauty thrown in for good measure. They don't deal in clichés. They are.............
