Big Red & The Grinners
These guys have brought the house down here, every time they’ve played. So were promoting them to headline this time. Big Red & The Grinners performs a crazy mixture of familiar musical songs in their own distinctive & special way. It’s bluegrass, folk and country delivered with great skill and a South Shields twist.
Instrumental cowboy jazz for the discerning barroom.
Purveyors of Western swing, cowboy jazz and the steel guitar standard canon – with nods to Speedy West & Jimmy Bryant, a tip of the hat to Merle Travis & the mandolin of Jethro Burns, Wholly Cats spin a spectacular stringing, swinging revue from a rare slice of American music’s past.
Young Bristol based singer-songstress Lady Nade has a tender, powerful, velveteen voice, and a knack for creating memorable melodies, with cards dealt from the decks of modern folk, soul and pop. Having performed in countless locations, from underground bars to festival fields, concert venues to European cities earning plaudits on BBC2, BBC6 and BBC 4.
“A star is most certainly born.” Fatea Records
The Goat Roper Rodeo band
With just two old guitars and a bucketful of aching harmony, The Goat Roper Rodeo Band are preaching ‘Country Blues’ like you never heard before. There’s a hint of Gram, a sniff of Dylan and a twist of Waylon’s blues. Simply put, it’s exactly what it says on the tin. They’ve been performing solidly across the UK and in Europe the last few years and have been picking up new fans and supporters wherever they go. “Like the Everlys fronted by Gram Parsons” Fatea
Vera van Heeringen
Vera van Heeringen self-penned songs and virtuoso bluegrass guitar playing have being described as bold, modern bluegrass shot through with nostalgia and often-bittersweet melancholy
“This lady oozes class ”- John Atkins, fRoots
“Her smart picking, choice covers and own material made a great impression, winning over the audience with the likes of ‘Old Man’, and a real snappy piece ’Pass Me The Whiskey’”. Her guitar playing in particular, possessing a lift, which only real players can obtain. ‘- Maurice Hope, Flying Shoes
Shipcote And Friends
Quirky, country jazzy tunes from the local quartet Shipcote & Friends, one of the region’s oft-overlooked gems. They are play songs from a new album “Local Stars’ & some old Shippy classics like “Crazy Country Fool’ “ North East Of England’.
Late addition – Gem Andrews- wonderful country songstress
