Bookie Baker’s creative and musical journey, punctuated by an arrest and interrogation in China, is just part of the alt-folk duo’s story. Consisting of Irishman, Caolan O’Neill-Forde and Canadian, Alex Montyro, their journey from the beginning has been fuelled by a sense of adventure, entrepreneurial spirit and wanderlust.
The collaboration began after Montyro opened a music venue in the Liaoning province of China and O’Neill-Forde wandered in looking for musical compatriots in a faraway land. Soon packing in large crowds to the ire of local communist party officials, the duo found themselves enduring multiple interrogations by local police after an arrest during a live performance. Released after being warned to never play music in the country again . . .. . . . .. . . . . . .
Bookie Baker will be touring Europe this summer and opening in Prague for pioneering Alt-folk troubadour, Amigo the Devil. Bookie Baker has been described as “A winning combination of deft yet beautifully-understated musicianship & wry turn of phrase & expressive vocals” reminiscent of Father John Misty meets Simon & Garfunkel.
