About Monkey See Monkey

Violinist
Southampton
Public liability insurance of £1 million
Folk and Ceilidh band available for Weddings and Functions

Monkey See Monkey Do is a band of four young musicians from Southampton and London. Aaron Horlock (guitar, lead vocals), Sam Horlock (fiddle, backing vocals), Helen Gentile (clarinet, backing vocals) and Matt Aldous (bodhran, backing vocals) work together to create arrangements of folk songs and tunes as well as writing material of their own. Their main influences are from English and Irish folk songs, with a few European folk tunes thrown in for good measure! Since 2015, Monkey See Monkey Do has performed at a number of prestigious venues across the south of England, including Winchester Folk Club, The Fo’c’sle Folk Club and Folklights. Having taken time to hone their repertoire since the release of their EP, ‘Colouring Outside the Lines’ (2014), the band is now in the process of releasing their much-awaited debut album, ‘The Night Out’ following the release of the first track of the album (Pound a Week Rise) in October this year (2018).
