The Hummingbirds are a 6 piece modern skiffle/Folk outfit that hail from the shores of Liverpool, England.

Heavily influenced by music from a simpler time, The Hummingbirds grew up on the streets of Merseyside, capturing that unmistakable Liverpool twang that has resulted in the band winning the Liverpool Music Award “One to Watch 2013” in their first year as well as being tipped for The Mercury Music prize.

With a unique Modern-Skiffle guitar sound The Hummingbirds give a passing nod to their Merseybeat heritage but mix it up with a Folk rhythm and Country style. Their songs reflect current social themes with Scouse wit, humour and a cutting edge.

The band sits comfortably within the new retro music movement that is gathering momentum nationally and providing the music scene with a fresh sound. As they spread their wings they are winning hosts of new fans wherever they play (20,000 twitter & Facebook followers to date).

Audience reaction to their live shows has been outstanding, people quickly connect to the infectious melodies and hook-laden choruses, which uplift and engage. The stage presence and charm of the band is for all to see as a potent musical force.
