Spicily combining weaving Breton dance tunes with a kicking drum and bass rhythm section, the Mordekkers are one of the most exciting live bands to hit the festie scene. The skirl of bagpipes and chunky mandola give this band a unique edge, resulting in some of the bouncingest tunes about.
The origins of the Mordekkers lie with Peni Ediker and Stef Balesi. Through years of traveling and performing with others and as a duo a tight musical understanding was found between them. Their vision was to team up with a kivking drum and bass section. After a few false starts they joined up with Jez King and Ed Stovell and the Mordekkers were formed. Ed was replaced by Henry Willatts in 2005.
