If you’ve ever caught a live performance by folk-punk 6-piece Skinny Lister you’ll be in no doubt as to why we’ve booked them to headline our Acorn Stage this year.
Whether you class them as punk infused folk or folk infused punk, their visceral live performances packed with raw energy and song writing wit never fail to leave an audience stomping their feet and singing their hearts out!
Skinny Lister brings together a youthful bunch with talent beyond their years. Since forming in London in 2009 their love of live performances has seen them play huge tours across Europe and North America, often with the likes of Frank Turner or Dropkick Murphys, as well as headlining themselves across festivals, sweatboxes and ever-larger venues.
Released last year their fourth album, The Story Is... (produced and mixed by Barny Barnicott – Arctic Monkeys, The Enemy, The Temper Trap) takes everyday tales, the minutiae of our lives, and turns them into potent songs replete with insightful social commentary and relatable humour.
With these songs, stories and passionate live performances, Skinny Lister have a reputation for charming and thrilling their audiences. Their fervent, energetic live style is perfect for our Acorn stage finale, their collective showmanship promising a riotous, rip-roaring and unforgettable set!
