Manchester seven-piece Honeyfeet play the Royal Exchange this Sunday as part of the theatre’s series of shows in the round. The group, whose music has been variously described as ‘folk-hop’ and ‘barrelhouse-pop’ during their 10-year existence, head to the venue following sell outs in recent years at Gorilla and Band on the Wall. Expect to hear songs from their two studio albums – plus a preview of tracks from a forthcoming EP of their favourite jazz tunes reworked, as well as brand new original material. The historic Royal Exchange offers three seated tiers surrounding the stage, providing audiences with a unique perspective on each performance – be it theatre or music. As part of this concert series, programmed in collaboration with Band on the Wall, the theatre has recently hosted Jane Weaver and Mercury Rev, among others, with singer-songwriter John Smith still to come (24 Feb).
