Skinny Lister is not your average English folk group. Not average in any way in fact. Fronted by Dan Heptinstall and Lorna Thomas; a vocalist with a lusty cackle and flirtatious presence, alongside her brother Maxwell, guitarist Andy ‘Slim’ Black and new addition Thom Mills on drums. Skinny Lister hail from across England with a hula thrown in from the shores of Hawaii in the form of double bass player, Michael Camino. Borrowing the nickname from the Lister family, pioneers in the use of antiseptics, the band have grown naturally over the past four years and are now a main stage festival act around the world, single handedly conquering the world with their infectious energy and memorable live shows; from Japan’s Fuji Rock festival and Coachella Festival in the US, to the Avalon stage at this year’s Glastonbury Festival via Germany’s Haldern Pop festival; the band have a growing reputation as one of the best live acts around.
Skinny Lister have built a strong and loyal following worldwide, none more so than in the US, where they have supported both Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly and headlined their own sell out tours in the US, clocking up more than 100,000 miles in the last 3 years. In the UK this summer alone sees the band gracing Wickerman, Cambridge Folk Festival, Beautiful Days, Festibelly and the aforementioned Glastonbury to name but a few.
Skinny Lister are now all set to release their second eagerly anticipated album and early 2015 will see the band once more on the road in the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA bringing cheer and song to thousands.
Skinny Lister are a force to be reckoned with and their live show is an experience you will never forget!
