The Crooked Fiddle Band have built a reputation as one of Australia’s most intense live music experiences. Delivering high-octane future-folk, this Sydney-based violin-led quartet twists trad folk and progressive influences into intense cinematic soundscapes with medieval battle-axe climaxes, transforming dance floors into post-apocalyptic hoe-downs. Following three tours to Europe/UK, the band recorded their second epic album “Moving Pieces of the Sea” in Chicago with Steve Albini (Nirvana, The Pixies, Gogol Bordello, Jonanna Newsom).
“Mind-blowing, face-melting, jaw-dropping, head-spinning.” ~ The Music
“When The Crooked Fiddle Band took to the stage, it was as though someone had put 10,000 volts through the dance floor.” ~ BEAT
“…completely surprising. The music is original and quixotic, and yet has the strength of some deep and strong roots. I can’t say I’ve ever heard anything else like it!.” ~ Brian Eno
