The Line Up
The Old Parrots style of music could be called English Eclectic.  Most of the tunes originate in various parts of England, but there's also the occasional Irish, American or even French number.  The band's own made-up tunes feature prominently. There's a mixture of acoustic and electric instruments, and an assortment of percussion rather than a full drum kit.  This means the sound is punchy and energetic, but not quite your standard folk rock.
