The Old West. Hot, dry and a true mess. Women and men needed true grit to survive the hardships of the newly claimed land. A time of feared outlaws, predatory cattlemen, heroic sheriffs and brave men that won the West. In other words, a time that has been highly romanticized. The tales close to the truth didn’t always have a happy ending.
The troubadours of Sunfire compose tales about these hard times and work as much as they can to entertain the audience with gritty and quite dance-able Alternative Western Folk. Influenced by Americana, Roots, blues and a pinch of sweet, good ol’ fiddle music this five-headed band gets a unique sound unlike any other.
It is insane how far this band has come in such a short time. It was just the first half of 2017 when Sunfire played their first live shows. Now, a year later they play at so many festivals both in and outside of Holland that you just cannot go to a festival without seeing this awesome band on stage.
With their mix of americana, country and blues, Sunfire are putting down a solid sound of Western folk. The tunes are catchy and the energy on stage will make you want to party. A deadly combination for every music lover in the world. You’ll get addicted.
Watching a band like this should come with a warning: “Be aware, you’ll be likely to dance, sing along and you won’t get the songs out of your head!”
