Tuesday 8 August
Absolutely delighted to announce the return of one of our favourite singer-songwriters Hattie Whitehead.
Hattie first played the Fringe back in 2015 - the warmth of her distinctive vocals and delicate timbre had the audience enthralled. This was followed by another pin-drop performance in the barn in 2018. Hattie's songwriting is very much from the heart and her music has blossomed over the years reflecting the ups and downs of her life.
Don’t miss this special artist back at the Fringe for her third visit later this summer.
Gates open at 5.30pm with informal live music with the first act on stage at 6.45pm til late
Introducing Blind Yeo a 6 piece outfit who orbit around the Cornish Bank in Falmouth - Cornwall’s liveliest creative hub and music venue.
Their music is described as a ‘psych, groove, poly-rhythmic whirlwind’ with conjures psychedelic bands of the 1970s and with nods towards the early work of influential musician and artists Brian Eno and and Peter Gabriel.
Flats & Sharps
We love these boys... Back by popular demand for their 5th Fringe performance since they first appeared 10 years ago as four fresh-faced lads from the farmlands of deepest Cornwall back in 2013!
Flats & Sharps are a four-piece outfit from Penzance delivering energetic, enthusiastic, and spirited Bluegrass to audiences all around the world.
Their shows include a wide variety of influences, from a fresh and modern outlook on foot-stomping Bluegrass material through to their powerful and well-crafted original songs, with beautiful moments everywhere in between. Their music perfectly blends strong harmonies and stonking solos, their incredible stage presence and energy create an evening that’ll have you dancing, laughing and singing along in no time.
BCUC - short for ‘Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness’ - are a seven-piece band from South Africa who have been mesmerising audiences both locally and globally with their indigenous funk and high-energy performances making them one of South Africa’s most successful musical exports.
Jazz sounds of 1970s and ‘80s replaced by hip-hop influences and punk-rock energy, taking the listener on an epic journey, sharing their views on modern Africa. They tackle the harsh realities of the voiceless and taps into the spirit world of ancestors by which they are inspired.
