FRIDAY NIGHT

19:00 – 19:45

Lost in Space

If Lost In Space were a building, it would be Gaudi’s Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, an exuberant, eccentric work in progress. If they were a meal, it would be roast swan and chips. If they were a book, it would be the Argos catalogue as written by James Joyce. To call them simply a band is to miss the point; they are a philosophy, a world-historical movement, a tectonic process. Whether it’s mercifully synth-free synth-pop, brass-fuelled disco classics or traditional Transnistrian foot-stompers telling of premature burials and werewolves’ weddings, the phrase ‘Expect the unexpected’ barely begins to describe the eclecticism of their oeuvre. Yes, there are drums, bass and guitar, horns, strings and reeds: but in combination, they don’t so much push the envelope as shred it and then set fire to its remains.

20:15 – 20:45

Andy Quick and The Band

Andy is an eclectic songwriter and laid back storyteller who has played countless festivals nationally and internationally with his projects Land Of The Giants (mashed up ska/rock/reggae) and The Andy Quick Band (retro alt funk/blues).

As a solo performer Andy hits the stage with a soaring voice, shimmering guitar, a thumping foot stomper and a lively bunch of anthems hand picked from 12 years of inspired songwriting with his festival bands.

21:30 – 22:15

Cable Street Collective

London-based seven-piece Cable Street Collective have spent the last year writing and recording new material whilst they get ready for festival season to return. Recent releases showcase the direction of the new album. Their first new release, Speaking in Tongues, features friend of the band Gregg Kofi Brown, of the legendary Afro-rock group Osibisa.

Cable Street Collective initially broke through onto the festival circuit with the release of their first EP, The Best of Times, in 2014, and have since built up a stellar reputation as a live band. Their latest recordings are songs that have been road-tested extensively, with back-to-back summers tearing up the likes of Boomtown, Bestival, Secret Garden Party, The Isle of Wight Festival, and the Lake of Stars Festival (Malawi), as well as those mentioned below.

In 2019, building on the critical hype and radio play (on the likes of BBC Radio 6Music, Radio X and Amazing Radio, among others) generated by their second EP, they toured extensively – playing at Glastonbury, and Shambala as well as a whole host of smaller festivals and venues up and down the country.

Their sound mixes African-influenced guitars and beats with soulful female vocals, socially conscious lyrics and western melodies, creating an idiosyncratic alt-pop sound that’s all their own. Their sets are guaranteed to get everyone to their feet.

SUNDAY NIGHT

18:30 – 19:15

Brother Sea

Brother Sea are a Celtic-folk trio that brings together two award winning Cornish songwriters Kris Lannen and Richard Trethewey with drummer Henry Cavender. Their music is that of departure, adventure and new beginnings, sweeping you away with a sense of boldness and innocence. With hypnotic vocals accompanied by classic folk instruments they create a sense of awe and intrigue with songs like campfire stories exploring heritage and folklore as they gently flicker through captivating soundscapes.

19:45 – 20:30

Bailey Tomkinson

Bailey Tomkinson, a singer-songwriter from St Ives, is part of the new wave of British Country influenced artists. When not performing, she can be found surfing the waves at her local Porthmeor beach.

Recently featured in The Metro, The Times and on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, Bailey’s mix of pop-country hooks and relatable storytelling has earned her comparisons with an early Taylor Swift and the legendary Emmylou Harris.

Bailey’s crossover appeal saw her land a recent #1 hit on the UK all-genre iTunes Music Video Charts, outselling Miley Cyrus and Kylie Minogue, and her latest single also entered the iTunes country charts at #1.

With a strong reputation on the UK festival scene, Bailey’s progression has earned her slots at Boardmasters Festival and a main stage opening slot for KT Tunstall. She’s proven herself capable of stripped down acoustic sets as well as high energy performances with her band which, in January 2020, sold out Islington’s O2 Academy.

Raised in Milan, Brussels and the UK, Bailey plays both piano and acoustic guitar, with influences ranging from Springsteen and Swift to the Eagles, Carole King and John Denver.

21:00 – 21:45

Howlin’ Ric & the Rocketeers

Leeds-based Howlin’ Ric & the Rocketeers play vibrant and authentic rock and roll, roving from raucous rhythm and blues right through to dreamy popcorn love songs. Wailing vocals, virtuosic sax and biting, grooving guitar will have the audience bouncing, swinging and sweating from start to finish.

After forming as a trio in 2016 their debut releases, Cannonball EP and Tears Before Bedtime EP, were championed by BBC Introducing and UK Rock and Roll Magazine. In 2018 the band expanded the line-up, adding saxophone and drums to the already rocking guitar and bass rhythm section.

Their debut album, Waiting By The Dance Floor, was released in 2019 and is a product of band leader Richard Colley and his life long love of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Rhythm & Blues and Rockabilly. Over recent years he has immersed himself in the new great roots artists such as Nick Curran, The Bellfuries, JD McPherson and the amazing bands that have been coming out of Hi-Style Records but not before refracting the sound through his record collections, drawing on classic Rock ‘n’ Roll and Rhythm & Blues.

Since the release, they have set their stall out as a hard-touring outfit, headlining shows across the UK as well as performing at a multitude of festivals including Rhythm Riot, Atomic, Underneath The Stars, SummerTyne Americana, Great British Rhythm and Blues and made lauded debuts across Europe in Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria and Italy.

Howlin’ Ric & the Rocketeers deliver an exciting take on a great American tradition. Presenting original Rock & Roll and Rhythm & Blues with a classic and fresh sound and are back in the studio recording their next album, for release in 2022.
