About John Coletta & The Humpff Family Revival and support

For Scottish folk fans of a certain vintage and temperament; those of us whose conversion experiences included moshing in sweat-soaked black-box venues to the punk-folk vanguard of today's ongoing revival, there could hardly be more pleasing news than the Humpff Family Revival. Of all the music to emerge from that particular late-1980s/early-90s ferment, frontman John Coletta's songs still sound amazingly fresh - or maybe timeless; expertly based as they are on Celtic/bluegrass melodies and grooves, while running the gamut from manically hilarious to genuinely heart-tugging. Anyway, they're back! Dig out your Stetsons - and then hold onto them, as Coletta and cohorts old and new return to Celtic Connections.

Since winning the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Horizon award, Sam Kelly has only gathered speed, appearing alongside Seth Lakeman, Heidi Talbot and other stellar performers. He is joined here by his band The Lost Boys.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for John Coletta & The Humpff Family Revival and support are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
