Playing original folk(ish) songs and telling stories of work, wives, kids, and the Mother-in-law!

banner pic 1We are a  band from Wigan who play original folk songs!

 

Chonkinfeckle shot to national fame in 2014 when their song ‘I’m from Wigan me’ became the unofficial anthem of  Wigan Athletic’s journey to the F.A. Cup semi-finals, which included the then Chairman, Dave Whelan making a guest appearance on the video!

Chonkinfeckle’s songs tell of true(ish) stories of everyday life in a Northern town including work, wives, kids, even the Mother-in-law!  And they’ll include the occasional  bit of  local dialect too, thrown in for good measure!

 

Our music has been featured on BBC, ITV, Channel 4

and Sky-TV , also national and local radio.

Tim Cooke – Vocals , Percussion & Ukulele
