Forged out of true grit, hard sweat and a couple of beers, The Cheesecutters are an eclectic mix of Folk’n’Roll and all round fun.
Based in Holywell, Flintshire the band thrives on putting a smile on your face and getting the crowd going.  Whether it is at a festival or an intimate live venue, we aim to please the audience with a mix of crowd stomping music, bad jokes and a cheeky smile

Reviewed in “Cheese Taster Aficionado Magazine” – “The Cheesecutters are a cross between Chas’n’Dave and Mumford & Sons….with pies”

Ken Bruce, BBC Radio 2 once said “Cheese-graters?  Who? Stop stalking me Rob!”
