Short Bio

Rich compelling melodies and tight driving rhythm, five-piece Flatworld will lift your spirits with their groove laden, foot tapping world music from all points East. Songs and tunes from the folk traditions of Eastern Europe and beyond are given a fresh modern treatment that you'll be whistling all the way home.

Distinctive melodies played on saxophone/flute and laúd/mandolin are woven with classically rooted violin harmonies and underpinned by an energetic rhythm section of guitar, bass and drum.

Formed in 2001 to play support to Polish trio Kroke, gigs, festivals and radio followed and the band has been playing continuously ever since. Festivals have included Glastonbury, Hay Literature Festival, The Green Gathering, Three Choirs Festival, Upton upon Severn Folk Festival and Ledbury Poetry Festival.
