20 JULY


THE KESTOR STRING BAND/ 8pm

The Kestor Stringband plays purple moorgrass music, a genre born one fateful night when a mad celtic fiddler and a bluegrass banjo scientist met in the centre of a forgotten Dartmoor stone circle and conjured up a killer guitar and bass rhythm section. Country, bluegrass, celtic, and old-time acoustic sounds combine to bring back a long-lost time which may never have existed, but should have.

Timbertone / 1.30pm

DAMNBUSTERS / 8pm
When this band first appeared the widely respected blues and RíníB vocalist Kirris Riviere surprised some of his fans when he revealed a nice line in Jump Blues, Swing and Jive. Driven along by Ev Newmanís classic Hammond organ sound and Joe Allen's thwacking double bass, the Damn Busters are a real blast from the past.
