A night of sweet dancing folk music at Jamboree…

The Drystones play impossibly lively, energetic jigs and reels that leave the audience breathless! They have played festivals all over the Country (including Sidmouth, Broadstairs, Warwick, Bromyard, Purbeck and Folk East), and were highlighted by Steve Lamacq on Radio 2 as his “recommendation of the day” at their 2013 Glastonbury Festival performance. The band were also 2015 Larmer Tree Breakthrough Music Award winners and were asked by Michael Eavis to play the 2015 Glastonbury Extravaganza when Joan Armatrading had to cancel! The third Drystones LP is a Songlines “Top Of The World” album.

“Indecently talented” – Mike Harding, Mike Harding Folk Show

“To describe their instrumental style as spirited and animated would be akin to asserting that Bellowhead can be quite an energetic band” – Clive Pownceby (Living Tradition)

“My recommendation of the day” – Steve Lamacq BBC Radio 2 live from Glastonbury 2013

Hickory Signals are a Sussex-based folk duo with atmospheric songs inspired by everything from sea shanties to children’s ballads. They perform original and traditional interpretations of folk tunes from England, Ireland, Scotland and the USA, merging strong vocal melodies with acoustic guitar, flute, glockenspiel and a variety of percussion.

“Like stepping back into a bygone age, both in terms of musicality and atmosphere…. Laura Ward does indeed have a lovely voice… almost a slightly more melodious Maddy Prior…” – Ken Brown, FATEA Magazine

Sam Walter is a folk singer from Malvern with an infectious spirit and rich, deep voice. Walter’s tales sings of Jacobite uprisings and the Napoleonic wars, and show his determination to reignite some traditional folk, writing original songs with a traditional sentiment.

“Sam emotively inhabits the body and soul of the deck hand or the poor, bloody infantryman…” – Jon Cleave (Fisherman’s Friend)

Plus DJs till late playing a mix of sweet Celtic-tinged folk, klezmer, Gypsy and Balkan sounds.
