Arrive in good time - with fantastic music right from the start!

The Northern Heights (Slot 1)

 

We're really excited to introduce young contemporary 5 pce folk band The Northern Heights from London to the Fringe this summer. 
Gorgeous boy/girl harmonies and dynamic compositions - they cite local favs Wildwood Kin as one of their musical influences along with Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver and Fleetwood Mac. 
We love this uplifting song (click vid) which is an absolute sweetie...

Tors (Slot 2)

Four piece band with fabulous hair-raising vocal harmonies and infectious melodic songwriting that quickly reels in any audience…

 

We’re delighted to welcome founders Matt and Theo Weedon back to the Fringe having performed at the barn as duo Moon Brother a few years back. Recently the Devon brothers have expanded to full band Tors - now with extra fulsome 4 part harmonies that are simply mesmerising.

 

With comparisons ranging from the Everly brothers to Bombay Bicycle Club they are a must see act.

Stone Roots  (Slot 3)

 

Feel-good soulful grooves from melodious  4 piece from over the Tamar.

Forming in mid-2014 from the combination of singer-songwriter Holly Turton and the well-seasoned ‘Melodious Funk’ rhythm section, Stone Roots merge pop-infused vocal melodies with close-knit funk and soul grooves.

Having been described as ’Adele meets the Red Hot Chili Peppers’, the sound that Stone Roots create is infectious, energetic and guaranteed to get you moving.

Flyte (Slot 4)

 

Absurdly-talented foursome from London - producing shimmering feel-good indiepop. Featuring beaut vocal harmonies, delicious melodic songwriting and witty insightful lyrics. DO NOT MISS!

 

Dead chuffed to have these boys back at the barn to polish off the Fringe. We've seen a fair few talented musicians through our doors over the years but this band were absolutely sensational when they played here in 2014 - playing acoustically among the enthralled crowd for their finale. Still not sure why they are not already massive but despite their name they are keeping themselves well grounded, carefully honing their craft and clearly enjoying the journey.

Meanwhile their music is gradually seeping into our collective consciousness and with the release of their debut album due out soon and signing to Island Records - stand back for lift off...

“Individually excellent. Collectively Sensational.”
