A good-time band mixing old folk forms, blues grooves and jazz chords to create a unique sound all of their own. Hup!
Evoking the afro-funk of Mulatu Atstake, the exuberant folk of Flook, and the blues of Junior Wells without ever sounding contrived or unoriginal, Honeyfeet have in Ríoghnach Connolly one of the most striking frontwomen on the scene at the moment. Seldom has conspicuous greatness been more accessible.

An unequaled flair for blending and mixing the boundaries of musical genres...
—Matt and Phreds
Songs about eating people, dancing on graves and infidelity… but it’s not all bad news.
Manchester’s finest ethio-trad, folk-hop & barrelhouse-pop exponents have the skill, charm and tunes to pull it all together into a joyful, foot-banging sound.
Over the years, Honeyfeet have appeared in concert halls and festivals all across the UK and as far abroad as South America and continental Europe. They have also played live sessions for BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends presented by Clive Anderson, among other stations.
Their debut album, “It’s a Good Job I Love You”, was released in November 2013.
