Jonny and The Baptists

Musical Comedy Trio

Synopsis

The comedy blues combo specialise in silly, satirical songs. As one critic put it, ‘they set the pulse racing, the foot tapping and the face aching with a bellyful of boisterous ballads.’ Credits include Sketchorama, The Now Show, Robin Ince’s Late Night Revolution and Marcus Brigstocke’s Early Edition.

Biography

The acclaimed musical comedy trio Jonny & The Baptists have taken their infectious humour and tunes to venues across the country, building an admirable following in a short space of time.

Jonny (guitar & vocals), Amy (fiddle) and Paddy (guitar) compose and perform superbly crafted comic songs. Subjects range from what constitutes a real pub (pints of mild and scampi fries, not staff with asymmetric hair), to why Scotland should remain part of the United Kingdom (told as a ballad of two estranged lovers).

From the satirical to the whimsical, Jonny & The Baptists are both funny and ‘hum-able.’ And after taking on the challenge or writing a new song every day for their Edinburgh debut, they’re happy to put that skill to good use by writing bespoke material for any event.
