For over a decade Sheelanagig have brought their array of foot-stomping folk tunes to audiences across the globe. This quintet have a well-stocked armoury of stringed instruments – guitar, fiddle, double bass – to which they add the rhythmic energy of flute and drums and a bagful of joint-jumping tunes. These boys from the South-West England create a real dynamic, inherent in their furious dance medleys as well as their creatively arranged original pieces.

The Drystones are an award winning young (just 21) lively folk duo from Priddy in Somerset playing violin, guitar and whistle, who have made a big splash since they formed in July 11. They play a mix of their own tunes and arrangements of folk tunes given drive, beat and energy. They have played festivals all over the Country (including Sidmouth, Broadstairs, Warwick, Bromyard, Purbeck and Folk East), and at their 2013 Glastonbury Festival performance they were highlighted by Steve Lamacq on Radio 2 as his “recommendation of the day”. They were the 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! Their third CD is a Songlines “Top Of The World” album. For just two people they make a lot of sound, you will not be bored!

“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

“absolutely blown away by their energy”
– Will Lang – Halsway Manor Centre for Folk Arts
