The Hungry Monks came together to perform Traditional, Contemporary, and Original acoustic songs and instrumentals in the Celtic tradition, while drawing on a wide range of influences including Medieval & Renaissance, Folk, Blues, Classical and Jazz. The Hungry Monks have performed in clubs, at contra dances, festivals, and concert series. They have been featured at Piccolo Spoleto, Charleston First Night, The Taylor Music Festival (Little Rock, AR), Cuyahoga Valley National Park (OH), and on TV and radio throughout the US. Experienced at performing, recording, and teaching, The Monks are quickly making a name for themselves as a band with strong musical abilities. Combining strong original songs and instrumental compositions with an ear toward improvisation, The Hungry Monks weave a rich tapestry of sound, melodic and rhythmic, grounded in the folk traditions of many cultures. Combined with the traditions and technique of Western Classical Music, this eclectic mix produces an interesting ensemble sound featuring acoustic sounds and beautiful vocals.
