Sunday 6 August
Gates open at 5.30pm with informal live music with the first act on stage at 6.45pm til late
Introducing Isaac.I.Ockenden - an experimental ballad singer from Dundee on the east coast of Scotland. His songs spin tales from the bowels of Glasgow to the tranquil mountain peaks. From life at sea to doing time in the cells. He mixes raw howling vocals, frailing banjos, gentle drones, stomping feet and crackling guitars as the back drop for his re appropriated and arranged folk songs of murder, drinking, life on the road, debauchery, love, healing, sailing, monsters, silliness….
A heavily passionate performer of songs old and new, your never sure where exactly his shows shall take you but one things for sure......were all going there!
Megan Dixon Hood
Delighted to welcome back Manchester-based singer songwriter (and siren) Megan Dixon Hood and band to the Fringe stage.
Her music could be described as ethereal alternative art rock/folk which along with her mesmerising stage presence, leads her audience on a journey into a fairytale world with “songs and stories that seep from dark enchanted woods”
Think Florence + the Machine, AURORA with a hint of Fleetwood Mac.
A raucous and danceable feast of dynamic, high-octane, prog-folk music:
The electrifying sound of Birmingham’s fiery, folk band Bonfire Radicals is both intensely creative and irresistibly fun. Their live set is a frenzy of energy and captures the adventurous breadth of their musical imaginations which emerge from a melting pot of original and (un)traditional tunes and songs from the British Isles to the Balkans.
Town of Cats
Excited to welcome Brighton-brewed big brassy band of bruvvas Town of Cats! A mix of Afro-beat, Ska, Latin, Jazz, Hip-hop and more...
Expect a high energy performance with some serious “Funk rhythms that dare you not to dance, coloured by boiling blasts of brass and a guitar that warps from crystalline chicken-scratch to face-melting prog”. Red hot performers to bring Sunday night to a breathless joyful climax!
