Lunatraktors are choreographer and percussionist Carli Jefferson, and nonbinary vocalist and composer Clair Le Couteur. Influenced by flamenco, post-punk and trip hop, their ‘broken folk’ sound strips trad folk back to rhythm and voice.

The pair turned heads in 2019 when their DIY debut This Is Broken Folk – recorded live in a viaduct arch by Ramsgate harbour – found its way onto MOJO Magazine’s Top Ten Folk Albums of the year. New releases blend analogue synth, whistles and accordion with tuned drums, vocal harmonies and a hybrid of tap dance and body percussion, which Jefferson developed after touring with Stomp.

Reimagining British folk through a shared teenage absorption in dance music and art rock, Lunatraktors have built up a passionate fanbase through performances at festivals, art galleries, museums, theatres and queer cabarets. Their 2021 release The Missing Star, exploring almost a thousand years of British traditional song, once again made MOJO’s Top Ten Folk Albums, this time coming in at #2.
