Insomniac Folklore

The members of Insomniac Folklore are a band of lovable hooligans that would probably be considered offensive, if only they weren’t so darned cute.

The band hail from many parts of the country and when everyone is present, create a vibrant whirlwind of musical tones using drums, accordion, violin, tambourine, guitar, bass, intense vocals, and occasionally ironing board. Their music, to which they lovingly refer as “Tantrum Folk,” has been described as a combination of 1960s folk-rock, 70s punk, indie-rock and vaudeville. In the vernacular, this translates to a heartfelt and theatrical stomp-along dance party which may very well leave you in tears.² [+]
