The Vale is delighted to welcome Ríoghnach Connolly & Honeyfeet, with their broad terrain of musical textures from esoteric protest songs to foot-tapping and floor-thumping dance rhythms, Ríoghnach Connolly & Honeyfeet are an genre-defying ensemble based in Manchester.

Fronted by award-winning vocalist Ríoghnach, her evocative vocal is amply backed by the quintet of Lorien Garth Edwards, bass; Ellis Davies, guitar; John Ellis, keyboards; Biff Roxby, brass; and Phil Howley, drums; collectively known as Honeyfeet. Procuring an eclectic, heady and original sound, the band’s distinctive sonic signature spans from the bountiful to the subtle; touching on everything from big-band swing to Alabama blues-tinged folk.

Equally proficient in headlining festival stages as they are stripping back to sublime obscure jazz on theatre stages, Ríoghnach Connolly & Honeyfeet have finessed their incredible live show on stages for well over a decade. Proving to be electrifying headliners of stages at the likes of as Shambala, Beautiful Days and Moovin, the band have also wowed audiences at major festivals such as Glastonbury, Boomtown, Wilderness, Secret Garden Party and Kendal Calling along the way too.
