Skutch Manos offer a beautiful and hypnotic clash of classical Spanish and British instrumental acoustic folk, sometimes heavy, sometimes soft, but always heartfelt! Think Rodrigo y Gabriela, John Williams, John Mclaughlin and Led Zeppelin all rolled into one: a deadly and rhythmic combination of percussion, guitar and double bass. Skutch Manos were formed in 2011 by classical guitarist Arlen Connelly (formerly The Acoustic Conquistador) and Brazilian percussionist Holly Prest after meeting as different acts at Manchester’s popular Food and Drink Festival. The band soon became 3 in 2012 with the addition of jazz double bassist Chris Cliff.
Best served live!
The band have reached the final stages of recording an ambitious second studio album, and proceeds from this one-off gig will go towards helping them reach their goal.
This gig will feature the trio line-up of Arlen Connelly (guitar), Holly Prest (percussion), and Chris Cliff (bass).
A little taster (featuring strings players) can be enjoyed here!
