Bootscraper are an eight-piece Aggro-Folk band that formed in and around the water-holes of Leeds in 2008. Determined to plough their way through acoustic world music, whilst keeping it bone-crunching and most importantly aggressive, the band can currently be found rolling up at various festivals, bars and houses of ill repute around the country in a whirlwind of strings, sticks and fists.
Their self produced album “Country & Eastern” has been well received by audiences and critics alike and their much anticipated second album is due to be recorded at the end of this year for release early next year.
With the friendly ethos of 'we'll play wherever there are people to dance', the band are more than happy to load up the van and head in your direction for an evening of whiskey guzzling, Cossack dancing & jalfrezi induced acrobatics. So send them an email should you want your evening to go with a BANG, PARP or OOMPA (but please specify which). Go on, GET TO FOLK!
