Imprints are a Shanty-Folk-Rock cider fuelled explosion from Bristol. With songs covering everything from Space Pirates to Zelda's political leanings, from the undead partying to waking up drunk and doing it all over again, Imprints will guarantee foot-stomping fun and the mightiest and fieriest of jigs.

Over the last couple of years Imprints have played at festivals including: Glastonbury Festival, Boomtown Fair, Small World Festival, Bristol Harbourside Festival, Outcider, Cursus Festival, Great Dorset Steam Fair, SouthCider, Wimborne Folk Festival, Dorchester Cider Festival, Godney Gathering, Royal Bath & West Show (Pilton Stage), and many more!

"Imprints are one of those bands whose exuberance is contagious, a glorious opportunity to dance, sing along and have a bloody good time. Go see them, be prepared to sweat and be prepared to grin."

"This set was for dancing like buccaneers on speed."

"A grinning, singing ten-legged explosion of neo-shanties delivered with wit and joyfully evident pleasure"
