Skinny Lister is not your average English folk group. Not average in any way in fact. Fronted by Dan Heptinstall and Lorna Thomas; a vocalist with a lusty cackle and flirtatious presence, alongside her brother Maxwell and guitarist Andy ‘Slim’ Black. Skinny Lister hail from across England with a hula thrown in from the shores of Hawaii in the form of double bass player, Michael Camino.
Borrowing the nickname from the Lister family, pioneers in the use of antiseptics, the band have grown naturally over the past three years and are now a main stage festival act around the world. Skinny Lister recently performed at Japan’s Fuji Rock festival, Coachella Festival in the US, Glastonbury and Bestival in the UK and have a growing fan base in Germany where they have completed two sell out tours. The band recently supported Flogging Molly on their annual Green 17 Tour across America and are signed to Sunday Best in the UK, Side One Dummy in the US and folk-punk label Uncleowen in Japan. Described by one journalist as ‘like the Pogues, but with better teeth’. Skinny Lister is a force to be reckoned with and their live show is an experience you will never forget!
