The Krusty Moors are a folk rock band based in Karlsruhe, Southern Germany. They´ve played with a lot of the great folk bands on tour in Germany and further afield like Flogging Molly, Across the Border, Fiddlers Green, Paddy Goes to Holyhead, Jamie Clarke´s Perfect, Fish, The Sean Treacy Band, Bleeding Hearts, Hothouse Flowers, The Rumjacks, Restless Feet and many more….. After 18 Years, 5 CDs, 1 DVD, and a handsome history of unpaid beer bills in many bars around Europe the Bad (en) boys of folk n´roll are back with a rocking new Live cd featuring all four original members
Paul, Oli, Danny and Chris.
This is a very special recording as it is the last live performance of the Krustys with Chris Haskins on the double bass. He sadly passed away at the end of May 2016.
We are so happy to have this cd as a memory of his magic! Chris also played with another band in Switzerland. When he was busy with them boys, our good friend and brilliant bass player George Grimm would stand in for Chris. So it seemed only natural that George should now become a true Krusty Moor!! With lots of concerts booked and lots of new songs and ideas for the next new CD the Krusty Moors are ready for 2017!!
CDS: Craic Heads ( 2002 ), All Kranked Up ( 2005), Rats Fats ( 2008 ), A Stumble in the right direction ( 2011 ) KalApsO (2014) Last Night Live (2017) DVD: 11 Years of Krustyness (2012)
Paul (Scruffy) Burke: Guitar/ Vocals Oliver Hofmann: Drums, Percussion Danny Stöckel: Fiddle George Grimm: Bass
Sadly we have to announce that our bass player and friend Chris Haskins passed away last sunday!
He was a very special person. Funny, polite and sometimes a bit stubborn.
He loved Cheese, Red Wine and a good TUBORG!
Our love and condolences to his family.
