ABGESAGT: Ebri Knights (Hooligan Folk Rock, Katalonien)
Ebri Knight are at the most successful stage of their career. More than 60 concerts since their latest album ‘Foc!’ (Fire!) came out in April 2015; a national tour shared with the Italians Talco, hanging the sign Sold Out everywhere they went, two Enderrock awards 2016 for the best album and folk song, and most importantly, they have the appreciation of the public and the respect of the producers. These men from the Maresme are not a band that rose to fame from one day to the next; they are a solid project, founded with their own dedication and effort for ten years, that gained an incontestable reputation thanks to energetic live performances and a punk and committed attitude, in which the Mediterranean and Celtic musical tradition collide and explode.
This recognition of the strength of the roots with a punk-rock style makes them a group with a unique personality, that doesn’t leave anyone indifferent. Their concerts are a party without a break, on and down the stage, where a high politic and social component that makes them say things as they are isn’t left out. In this tour they fuel the Fire!, making it burn with even more intensity, so that all the sparks that fly away set fire to everything that doesn’t work in this society.
In the career of the Ebri we find the most important Festes Majors (local celebrations), Festivals and Concert Halls of the Catalan Countries, tours all over Spain and incursions on France. A status of poster headline that they earned thanks to the encouragement of a great number of people, entities and celebration committees that backed this project up and gave their support over the years.
