Just what you can achieve with a box, a broom handle and a few strings! Taking simple ideas and turning them into great musical instruments.

Introduction!

Chonkinfeckle are a  duo from Wigan, and we perform modern day folk songs.

Theatres – Festivals – Concert Halls – Football Stadia –

TV – Radio – Living Rooms.  We’ve played them all!

Chonkinfeckle shot to national fame in 2014 when their song ‘I’m from Wigan me’ became the official 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 has had the pleasure of sharing the same stage with the likes of Russell Watson, Buzz Hawkins & The Bradshaws, Jon Culshaw, Rowetta Satchell, Mike Sweeney, Ted Robbins and many, many more!

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 chuck in the occasional  bit of  local dialect too!

And in 2015, the lads launched their very own real ale brew! ‘Chonkinfeckle’ – The Beer, brewed by the wonderful Wigan team at Martland Mill Brewery

 

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

and Sky-TV , also national and local radio.

 

Chonkinfeckle are :

Les Hilton – Cigar box Guitar, Harmonica, 10 string Ukulele.

Tim Cooke – Vocals , Percussion , Bass & Ukulele
