| CC SMUGGLERS |
– Original music inspired by American and World Folk –
The natural born, ‘self-made’ showmen CC Smugglers have worked their way up from young street performers to playing some of the biggest festivals and venues in the UK and Europe.
Fronted by charismatic front-man ‘with a song running off of every page’ – Richie Prynne engages with an audience within seconds of stepping up and conducts the show with ‘infectious joy’.
Together the sextet of multi-instrumentalists perform with a genuine and now almost infamous chemistry.
The band has become renowned for producing fresh and unafraid blends of old-time/world-folk styles & instrumentation; hitting home the unique and contemporary British songwriting with skill, charisma and passion.
For CC Smugglers creating a show designed to captivate and thrill an audience is a skill they have well honed. These slick and exciting performances have allowed them to rocket through the ranks in the live scene and build a reputation for real music, proper showmanship and damn good times.
