Jonny and The Baptists

Fee Band

The comedy blues combo specialise in silly, satirical songs. As one critic put it, ‘they set the pulse racing, the foot tapping and the face aching with a bellyful of boisterous ballads.’ Credits include Sketchorama, The Now Show, Robin Ince’s Late Night Revolution and Marcus Brigstocke’s Early Edition.


The acclaimed musical comedy trio Jonny & The Baptists have taken their infectious humour and tunes to venues across the country, building an admirable following in a short space of time.

Jonny (guitar & vocals), Amy (fiddle) and Paddy (guitar) compose and perform superbly crafted comic songs. Subjects range from what constitutes a real pub (pints of mild and scampi fries, not staff with asymmetric hair), to why Scotland should remain part of the United Kingdom (told as a ballad of two estranged lovers).

From the satirical to the whimsical, Jonny & The Baptists are both funny and ‘hum-able.’ And after taking on the challenge or writing a new song every day for their Edinburgh debut, they’re happy to put that skill to good use by writing bespoke material for any event.

Looking Ahead to International Women’s Day

Samira Ahmed, Eniola Aluko, and Alex Mahon

We were joined by four fantastic speakers to look ahead at International Women’s Day. With the theme of this year’s event being #InspireInclusion, we were lucky enough to hear from four women who have each blazed a trail in their respective fields: CEO of Channel 4, Alex Mahon; the former Australian Prime Minister and Chair of Kings’ Global Institute of Women’s Leadership, Julia Gillard; one of the leading voices in football, Eniola Aluko MBE; and broadcaster and journalist, Samira Ahmed.
