Honeyfeet

Manchester's finest ethio-trad, folk-hop band, Honeyfeet are fronted by the remarkable Armagh-born singer and flautist Ríoghnach Connolly (AfroCelt Sound System, Realworlds' The Breath).

An extraordinary band with a unique musical presence, their debut single for Wah Wah 45s, Sinner, was originally affectionately known as Boingy Squelch, after the unconventional sounds trombonist Biff Roxby used in his early demos. Ríoghnach conveys the story of a woman who never intends on staying at home “chained to the sink” – “I may be a sinner, but I’m not a slave”. In that way, the song is a rejection of outdated, traditional roles.
