UPFEST BRISTOL 2013 - DETAILS COMING SOON
1.30pm ~ 2nd June
An hour of colourful and melodic live music to soundtrack the vintage market.
RAINY & THE DUST
8pm ~ 2nd June
Rainy's music has been described by many as G-Love meets Dave Matthews meets Paul Simon meets Crosby Stills & Nash in truth it is essences of the all above and something else entirely! The afro- Latin, rock and reggae influenced grooves, infused with the positivity of Rainy's lyrics and tied together by an eclectic and laid back musical style, makes Rainy and The Dust one of the most watchable, listenable and dynamic bands you could hope to come across. Rainy is currently performing as a duo with Rob York whilst recording a new album due for release in the summer of 2013.
CATHY JONES & TRISTRAM COX
1.30pm ~ 9th June
Acoustic Bossanova and mellow Samba to inspire a summery atmosphere.
EMILY WRIGHT & THE ROYALS
8pm ~ 9th June
Led by singer Emily Wright ("terrifically talented“ The Telegraph) Emily Wright and The Royals are a fabulous jazz quartet who have consistently delighted audiences wherever theyve played.
Drawing widespread critical acclaim following her sold-out concert at Brecon Jazz festival, Emilys unique tone brings a new freshness to the swinging sounds of the 1940s and 50s and is more than ably supported by a superb rhythm section that invokes the spirit of the Nat King Cole trio.
Previously of Sheelanagig and Moscow Drug Club, David Archer adds a touch of Django Reinhardts gypsy jazz guitar to the band while Mike Willoxs Erroll Garner inspired piano playing is a tour de force. Both these great musicians syncopate effortlessly with the bounce of Will Harris double bass, ensuring the band is always toe-tappingly swinging.
Old school good time tunes played with zippy brightness¯
