Bands and Music
Holder and Smith
Firecracker fiddle and guitar duo with almost any genre at their disposal but with Gypsy Jazz underpinning their unique award winning sound. Jazz, Classical and Contemporary with violin and guitar. Unforgettable.
Folk On, the finest comedy folk band to ever come out of the village of Little Dribblepatch … wherever that may be … write and play folk songs of unity and community, of solving conflicts and unyielding happiness. They also perform occasional songs about hopeless love lives, dead horses or Morris dancers.
“Folk On have made a niche genre accessible to a much younger audience…an experience not to be missed” – Greenbelt Festival Press
The Big R Band
A 16-piece big band from Bristol, the Big R Big Band are guaranteed to get you dancing. Dashing, debonair, dandy and dapper, the classic swing tunes of the 30’s and 40’s are looking, and sounding, pretty damn good. The fabulous Jiving Jimmy will be along with his swing dancers to liven things up.
The captivating rhythms of this collective of top notch musicians traverse an acoustic spectrum with a British/European folk core and smatterings of roots, jazz, gypsy and pop at the edges. Dryadic’s melodies bring the work of singer & songwriter Zora to life with harmonies and hooks, underpinning candid, heartfelt lyrics that ride on a silky wave of acoustic guitars, strings, pianos and acoustic bass.
