We’re pretty excited about next year’s line-up and you can join in with that excitement by making sure you go and see this bunch of fantastic musicians!
Out of the Woods are an acoustic duo featuring Isobel on vocals and guitar and Paul on guitar, mandolin, banjo and ukulele, they love to play beautiful covers and originals. Make sure you check them out at The Market Square on Sunday.
West Country band MARNIE perform an infusion of acoustic rock, soul, funk and blues. Playing originals and covers from the present day right back to the 60s, they bring another dimension to their raw, pure, heartfelt music with spine tingling vocals, driving guitars, mandolin, foot stomper and an adept use of ‘live loops’. They’ll be playing The Market Square on Sunday.
Returning act Kiera Osment, hails from Devon and has been compared to the likes of Lana Del Rey, Kate Bush and Natalie Merchant. With deep dark melodies scattered amongst metaphors about global and personal strife, Kiera has an honest and unique sound. Catch her at Alf Resco’s on Saturday.
The Rin Tins like to keep you dancing! With music that combines dark folk tales with swing jazz rhythms and pounding oompa beats, this swingin’ sextet have dedicated themselves to filling dancefloors with High Octane Gypsy Swing. Make sure you don’t miss them on Sunday at The Bandstand.
Swansea based Bigfeat is a rock and roll band who write songs about whatever inspires them. Sometimes that’s an evil Mexican succubus, sometimes it’s staying up til the sunrise and seeing what twisted cats come out of the woodwork. Come and party with them on Saturday in The Market Square. You won’t regret it.
Drum and Bass MC turned singer songwriter Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer songwriter. Mixing guitars, keys, drums and bass with intelligent, provocative lyrics and dangerously catchy hooks plus a feel good groove, this is music for the thinking man to shake his arse to. Make sure you catch them on Friday at The Bandstand.
Devon based UK reggae/dub band, The Barefoot Bandit, have a sound that mixes catchy melodies and exciting rhythms with a combination of modern roots reggae and deep, dark club. TBB have played numerous festivals including small stage headline performances at Glastobury and Love Summer. See them at The Guildhall on Saturday.
