folk rock band
Public liability insurance of £1 million
Brighton based epic folk/rock band, with classic versions of Irish and old time folk music, alongside Pogues covers

Starting in 1991, The Cracklin' Griffins have been been ripping it up for years. Started by frontman Jim Best, they specialize in fast and furious folk. With classic songs from The Dubliners and Pogues as well as 'old time' songs with a bluegrass feel. The band has played countless weddings and parties, sessions and pub gigs, and festivals, racetracks, street-parties and wakes... in fact just about every sort of gig. Some fine musicians have been in the band, with the present line-up the best yet. Folk rock at it's best!
