Holy Moly & The Crackers announced for PAC!

Known for their blazing live shows Holy Moly & The Crackers will bring their unique blend of soul, rock, indie and Balkan folk, to Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) later this year as the venue excitedly resumes its live events.

The innovative and fiery folk-rockers from Newcastle are known for putting on a raucous, feel good party, and their live show at PAC on Saturday 16 October, 8pm will be no exception.

PAC Director Janet Farmer said: “Holy Moly & The Crackers always put on such an energetic, vivacious show featuring their unique sound that has our audiences foot stomping and dancing in the aisles so we can’t wait to welcome them back after their sold-out show back in February 2019.”

The band was formed almost by mistake, when Conrad Bird, Ruth Patterson and Rosie Bristow met at a house party in Leamington Spa of all places. They were in their late teens. Enamoured by Rosie’s party-prop accordion, the three decided to start playing music together – mainly stomping folk and drinking songs as an alternative to SMACK – Leamington’s main student club, that was the only other option for a night out.

Moving North, and nearly 10 years on, the band has grown into a rocking six piece: with Tommy Evans on drums, Nick Tyler on guitars and Jamie Shields on bass to provide the grunt and diesel. They have released three albums and launched their own record label, Pink Lane.


Working again with Salem producer, Matt Terry, they recorded and released their third album Take A Bite in 2019, to raptured acclaim.

Holy Moly & The Crackers will play live at PAC on Saturday 16 October, 8pm. Tickets £20.00 on sale now at www.pocklingtonartscentre.co.uk
