When folk music fuses with jazz, ska and Big Band . . .

. . . you get Bellowhead!  This eleven-person group seems to have more fun with their music than just about any other folk-fusion group I've ever seen.

The group dances a lot on stage, and encourages its audiences to do likewise.  As a result, they have the dubious distinction (?) of having broken not just one, but two dance floors during appearances in England - and when I say 'broken' I mean they had to rebuild the darn things!  You can see why in this clip of Bellowhead appearing at the Royal Albert Hall in London.  Watch how the audience gets involved.

We'll close with their rendition of a boozy folk favorite.

They have many more songs on YouTube.  Highly entertaining, and highly recommended.
