What surrounds this band can only be described as magic.. Not only in the songs they write and play but also in the story of the band’s inception and career so far..
Hailing from the beautiful countryside of Denbighshire in North Wales the Bear Beats Band play an intoxicating mix of contemporary folk blended with elements of world music.
In May they released their debut CD ‘Sharing the Porridge’ which is already receiving regular National Radio airplay from the BBC and Amazing Radio amongst others. Their song Right By Your Side has also been BBC Single of the Week on BBC Radio Wales, along with many live performances including IPO Festival, Fire in the Mountain, Folk at the Hall Festival, Alchemy Festival & WOMAD, alongside artists such as Bellowhead, Gogol Bordello, Rodrigo y Gabriella, I AM KLOOT, Baaba Maal, Booker T Jones, Lee' Scratch' Perry, Heidi Talbot, Boo Hewerdine, Jackie Oates, Dougie McLean, Jim Moray, Fay Hield, Lucy Ward -
the list goes on and on...
All band members are multi instrumentalists playing between them - acoustic guitars, mandola, banjo, bass & double bass, saxophone, whistles and hauntingly beautiful vocals.
