Monkey See Monkey Do is a band of four musicians from Southampton’s urban jungle.
Helen Gentile, Matt Aldous and brothers Sam and Aaron Horlock use clarinet, percussion, fiddle and guitar to deliver a highly entertaining set which pulls in all sorts of influences from Irish traditional to bluegrass.
Monkey See Monkey Do met in Southampton's bustling folk scene, where Aaron and Sam grew up and Helen and Matt didn't. After many well-spent evenings at folk music sessions in Hampshire pubs, the current line-up came together in the summer of 2015. Combining vocals with fiddle, guitar, bodhran, clarinet and the occasional squeeze of melodeon, Monkey See Monkey Do take traditional and modern material and make it their own, coining the term ‘folk-ish’ to describe their upbeat sound, which draws on a wealth of folk traditions and influences.
Monkey See Monkey Do is available for concerts, ceilidhs and private functions.
