Part folk band, part funk outfit, Junction Pool unites a diverse array of instruments, from fiddle to electric guitar, flute and whistles to djembe drums with pipes and brass.
Under the direction of ace piano player Harris Playfair, the band welds traditional and contemporary melodies with uplifting grooves and cutting-edge arrangements, resulting in an original and infectious musical experience.
