This year raising the roof on Friday in The Cheshire Cat are The Scribes. The Scribes are a multi award-winning hip hop three-piece whose unique blend of beatboxing, off the cuff freestyling and genre-spanning music. The Scribes have created a live show quite unlike any other on the scene today, with appeal ranging far beyond traditional hip hop fare.
The Scribes have consistently proven to be an impressive and engaging live act with festival appearances at Glastonbury, Wilderness Festival, Shambala, Boomtown Fair, Bearded Theory, Leopalloza, Maui Waui Festival, St Pauls Carnival, Tunes In The Dunes, Shambala Festival, Godney Gathering and many more. They have toured extensively across the UK and onto Europe, including slots at prestigious venues such as Camden's Jazz Cafe, Cargo, Urban In Ibza, Bristol's O2 Academy, Peterborough Arena and Italy's Metaponto Beach Festival. In fact try and catch a weekend where these 3 are not performing!
The Scribes are also proud winners of both the Exposure Music Award's "Best UK Urban Act" and the Eat Music Radio Award's "Best Live Act". They have provided original music for BBC and Channel 4 television, in addtion their latest album, which features Akil The MC (Jurassic 5) and Too Many Ts, is featured regularly on both national, local radio and media including BBC 1Xtra and BBC Radio 1 Introducing.
The Scribes are hotly tipped as one to watch with live dates across the UK and Europe, as well as sharing the stage with the likes of Macklemore, Wu Tang Clan, Kelis, Rag N Bone Man, Example, Lethal Bizzle, The Wailers, Jurassic 5, Sugarhill Gang, KRS One, De La Soul, MF Doom, and Souls Of Mischief to name (drop) but a few, and are steadily establishing a growing following across the continent to add to their already significant fan base at home.
