SWAMPGRASS

 

Swampgrass formed in early 2013 and has since played

Glastonbury Fringe, Priddy Folk Festival, Farm Festival and a host of

gigs at pubs, private parties and beer & Cider festivals.

Eschewing pub rock blues - fine though it is - for a more up tempo and groove focused sound, Swampgrass are happiest when

the crowd is moving as much as they are and

drinking almost as much.

SATURDAY Afternoon: 3pm - 7pm Entrance free

Acts to be announced





SATURDAY EVENING 8pm Onwards


IN THE BAR 8pm - 9pm FREE



MINKE WHALES



The whisperers locally suggest songs that blend a smidgen of
twisted folk, Arcade Fire mixed with a healthy dollop of
Mazzy Starr that, with Reid's grizzled and endearing Scottish
vocal gruff and Elle Ashwell's soulful English nightingale, gives
 them an honest and intoxicating vocal concoction. Tales of
revenge, lost love and witch hunts wrapped up in sweet melodies
and banjo laden stomping stompingness.

The Main Hall 9.30 - 11.30 : Entrance £10


 
BARAKA



BARAKA is a unique combination of musicians from Ghana,
Senegal, Dominica, Germany, Trinidad and Southern Ireland.
Each musician contributes his individual sound and style -
Reggae featuring a Kora and Djembe, Township with a Calypso
 bassline, Hilife with Blues Harmonica, Soca with Balafon and
Flute. Baraka features musical collaborations that you are unlikely
 to hear with any other band. This is not just one person's music
translated by backing musicians, as so many "world" music bands
 seem to be. Baraka is edgy, experimental and innovative without
losing sight of the fact that entertainment is the key.

KEVIN BROWN TRIO



With Ten solo albums to his credit and countless international
live performances from the Main stage at Glastonbury to the
many beer joints of Texas where he once lived, Kevin has
managed to keep a fresh approach to his craft whilst paying
his respect to the blues masters of the past.
