Every Sunday we showcase some of the regions finest musicians from 8pm.



3 July


THE WAFFLE MACHINE ORCHESTRA / 8pm

The Waffle Machine Orchestra have a Big band sound in a small package and the freshest Swing sound to arrive from Switzerland. They are equally adept at rocking a big stage or a slower tempo Lindy Hop dance event. A blend of classic tracks from the past and original numbers culminates in a set you can enjoy on the dance floor or at a sit down event… The grooving rhythm section of double bass, drums and guitar is accompanied by red-hot brass of trumpet and trombone. Add wild guitar solos and powerful lead vocals and the band is complete!

31 July


PONCHARTRAIN / 8pm

Crossbreed the explosive excitement of the Klondike Gold Rush with the dangerous energies of the Last Chance Saloon, and then throw in the heart-searing agony of The Dustbowl. In the background and in the distance, you can always hear the haunting echo of the freight-train whistle.

Ponchartrain offer you a goodly slice of evocative American culture. The skilful and stylish musicianship of these guys and gals, combined with all those infectious swinging rhythms and tasty instrumental licks, is guaranteed to get toes tapping and to bring out the smiles all round. With a dobro/acoustic guitar, fiddle/accordion, lead guitar and double-bass topped by harmony vocals, this four-piece outfit gives you Vintage Country.

SOPHIE STOCKHAM & RUTH HAMMOND / 8pm
