One of Manchester’s favourite musical families, Honeyfeet, has booked a date at Band on the Wall for their next unmissable homecoming performance. Self-described as ‘ethio-trad folk hop’, they inhale influences from the many shades of jazz, blues, funk and soul before breathing out all manner of good vibes, from mouth organ-led seafaring shanties to slow-burning prog-folk. The band’s focal force in Rioghnach Connolly, a singer blessed with an unwavering command of audiences’ attentions across the UK and beyond. It’s now four years since the release of debut LP It’s a Good Job I Love You, and a second instalment of the sextet’s musical prowess is due in 2017, but the stage is still the place to be moved by their infectious melodies.

Sat 18 Mar, Band on the Wall, 25 Swan Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester, M4 5JZ, Tel: 0161 834 1786, 7.30pm, £8-£12,
