Folk, pop and hip hop…….Colourful, energetic & crowd-stamping, CoCo and the Butterfields express all the fun and vibrance of a village folk fair, throwing in powerful vocals and a beatbox to deliver catchy songs resonating in a stadium-filling pop and urban rap vibe. Yet the atmosphere is intimate, popular with audiences of all ages. The uniquely styled music transcends genre, skipping right to the part where people start dancing. CoCo and the Butterfields are on a mission to bring people from all backgrounds together, to have a good time!CATB hi res image 2014-15All previously buskers, the spirit of jamming together and combining styles came naturally when Jamie (beatbox) was first invited by Tom and Dulcima to provide percussion for the early CATB recordings in 2012, and the band quickly grew into the 5 piece it is today, with Micah and Handsome Rob learning new instruments to extend the sound. Pioneers of a newly found sound “Fip Fok” they soon earned themselves the title of the UK’s best unsigned act and shared the stage with internationally renowned artists Bastille, Wheatus, Seasick Steve and The Pogues.Co Co & The Butterfields fresh sound and raw energy on stage has rapidly earned them a large and loyal following, in two Howden Live seasons full of highlights tonight will be right up there with the very best.
