Leeds agro-folk mob Bootscraper have been building a superb reputation up and down the country. Their sound takes influence from country and eastern sounds, with a real punk attitude to give it edge. Instruments including a banjo, a mandolin, violin and accordian make for a diverse and exciting sound.

Formed in the summer of 2008 in the backstreets of Leeds, 6-piece Aggro-folk mob Bootscraper quickly gained themselves a reputation for their highly skilled musicianship, brilliant song-writing, and a captivating, energetic live show both locally and nationally.

They signed to Manchester punk label TNS Records for their first album “Country & Eastern” which saw them drawing upon their many musical influences to produce a mix of county, Balkan, punk, sea shanty, rockabilly, bluegrass, folk, gypsy and blues music which gained them rave reviews from magazines, radio stations and audiences at live venues on a national and international level.

The eclectic nature of Bootscraper’s music means that there is no audience regardless of age, background or taste that can resist the musical charms of their wild and truly original sound.
