Skutch Manos

Skutch Manos

Our first live music event of 2017!
Skutch Manos deliver a hypnotic clash of dynamic acoustic instrumental music that sounds like Rodrigo Y Gabriela covering Led Zeppelin.
Led by incendiary classical guitar, accompanied by thunderous cajon and double bass, Skutch Manos offer a programme of well-embellished compositions, which are melodic, pounding, playful, well journeyed and metamorphic, never resting, and always ready with a surprise!
The band’s live shows are gaining a reputation as one of the most exciting events to see from Manchester’s music scene, attracting ever-larger audiences to their gigs.

*** This special performance features the band’s delightful string fellows, Kathleen Ord and Aimée Suzanne Johnson, alongside the three Skutch Manos amigos Arlen Connelly (guitar), Holly Prest (percussion), and Chris Cliff (bass). ***
Skutch Manos are creating a buzz on the festival circuit, appearing at Manchester Jazz Festival, Beatherder, Kendal Calling, The Acoustic Festival of Britain, Congleton Jazz and Blues, and We Love Manchester festivals.
The band will be releasing their second album in spring 2017 which will be accompanied by a 15-date national tour and several summer festival appearances.
