Formed in 2005, Bert Miller And The Animal Folk’s unique take on the art of storytelling is enjoyed by audiences of all ages. Their songs are by turn eccentrically happy and darkly funny and are largely about Bert’s unadulterated love for animals. Hear their music at http://www.myspace.com/animalfolkmusic
After winning the Totnes Buskers Competition in 2007, the band were invited by Michael Eavis, to play The Queens Head stage at Glastonbury Festival. This year The Animal Folk were offered to play the opening night of Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent Competition.
Since 2007 the band have been enjoyed on the festival circuit as well as hosting some nights in venues throughout the country. Other recent gigs include The Green Man festival in Wales in 2009/2010, Beyond The Bubble festival in Southern France, 2008, and collaboration with The Clockwork Moth, also in 2008.
