Returning to Festival 8 we welcome them back……..they are kicking things off for us on the big top main stage, Friday just after 7pm.
Drawing on influences from across the decades, metal to jazz, funk to folk and anywhere in between, Dukes de Luda came together as a group of friends who wanted to make music just over three years ago. With no pre-conceived ideas of what they wanted other than a desire to play music, unfettered as a flow from like minds. The mix of acoustic guitar and cajon with story led lyrics, coupled with electric bass and far reaching free flowing electric guitar, seems on paper like an odd combo, but for us the juxtaposition works to create a truly original sound.
Dukes de Luda will have their recently released debut album, Midnight at the Lodestone for sale at the festival, which they released in February this year on Old Tin Box Recordings.
