Peni Piper

"What an infectious groove - all live, we couldn't keep still. This is real powerful music..."

R. Turner - Small Nations Festival
The Band

Peni Piper - bagpipes, pibgorn, folk oboe, whistle. Ben Tunnicliffe - bass. Stef Balesi - mandola & concertina. Jez King- drums

 
"We chose the Mordekkers to headline late night on Saturday night at
Sark Folk festival because of their energy and spirit... they did not
disappoint! Their contagious energy and mad folk grooves got the
whole festival dancing to a performance that left the entire island
buzzing for days. These guys have the amazing ability to combine
traditional folk tunes with full on drum & bass beats - sensational!"
 

The origins of the Mordekkers lie with Peni Ediker and Stef Balesi. Through years of traveling and performing with others, and working together as a duo, they have developed a tight musical understanding between them.

Their vision was to team up with a kicking rhythm section. The drum and bass arrived in the form of Jez King and Ed stovell. Ed was replaced by Henry Willatts in 2004. Henry left 2010 and was replaced by Ben Tunnicliffe. Jez came back to us in 2009.
