All Hail the Ale!

We really enjoyed Sunrise last weekend, there was a truly lovely atmosphere to the whole thing, and the rain didn’t put anyone off either – it won’t rain for the next one, hopefully, as it might water down the beer a bit…
(the horror, the horror…)

The festivals keep coming…

After a well-earned break following Farmfest (another cracker, even if it was a trifle damp), the next outing is nearly upon us – still some tickets left for this one, it’s a lovely looking site in Hereford and we’re looking forward to spending the weekend there…

Yet more festivally goodness…

Another excellent two-festival weekend done and dusted, Festival on the Farm and Priming the Pump were both great fun, and here’s the next outing, and it’s a biggun – Farmfestival Somerset. Tickets probably all gone now, but you might be lucky and snaffle a couple if you hunt around on Facebook etc.
See you at 5pm on Saturday!

…here’s the full lineup by stage…

…and Next!

A great gig at Once Upon a Time in the West last week, would have been nice to stick around and enjoy the rest of the weekend, but the next evening we had an hour and a half’s set at Cliveyfest, which also went down well (barring the powercut!)
No rest yet though, here’s the next two gigs, on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd respectively – at Festival on the Farm we’re first on at around 12ish midday, and then the following night at Priming the Pump we’re finishing things off at about 10.30pm onwards…

(and yes, we have noticed that we’re not on the poster for this one..!)

Still a few tickets left for Once Upon A Time In The West Festival, which we’ll be opening up at 7ish on the Thursday night
And on the Friday night we’ve got a nice long set at Cliveyfest, so a busy week in front of us…

July is festival month!

A packed month it is as well – kicking off in fine style with Keynsham Festival last week, then this coming Saturday we’ve got Heddstock – a one-dayer down near Devizes. All the usual info and ticket details on the giglist…

Chilli fest cancelled

Sorry to say that the Upton Cheyney Chilli Festival we were due to play at Bath Racecourse in September has been cancelled – anyone who has already bought tickets will receive a full refund. A real shame, it would have been a great way to round off the Festival year, but on the bright side there are still 10 more on the giglist, starting with Keynsham Festival on Saturday July 1st – full lineup to be released soon…

more festivals than you can shake a stick at!

Very pleased with our festival lineup for this year, our best ever crop! Things kick off next weekend with Bearded Theory and July in particular is going to be very busy – cross your fingers for some decent weather, and hope to see you somewhere in a field soon!

(Details for some of these are sketchy at the moment, we’ll update the giglist with playing times, ticket costs etc. as we find out…)

festival time approaches…

The gigs continue to go extremely well – Many thanks to Richard Clarke for the great photos he took at the Bradford on Avon gig the other week – one shown below, and a couple more in the slider at the top of our site.

Festivals are continuing to come in – first up is Bearded Theory in May, and we’ve just heard that we’ll be playing the opening night of Once Upon a Time in the West, a great little do in the heart of Wiltshire – see poster below…
Later in the year we’ve got Cliveyfest, Heddstock and of course the Upton Cheyney Chilli Festival, and there may be a couple more added to that list – watch this space, and keep checking the giglist and Facebook for further announcements!

Blimey, we won an award!

Very pleased to hear that our album ‘Ticket to Somewhere’ was voted ‘Best Album of 2016 by a local artist’ on Bristol’s BCfm Sunday Rock Show – many thanks to DJ Jon Wisbey for nominating us, and to everyone who voted – it’s really nice to get a bit of recognition occasionally, and local radio is really important when it comes to promoting original live music – keep up the good work, folks!

The first couple of gigs for 2017 have gone off brilliantly, and our new banjoplayer Mark has settled in incredibly quickly – we’re lucky to have such a talented and committed fella onboard. Lots more to come this year, and here’s the poster for Bearded Theory at the end of May – if you haven’t got tickets yet, better pull your finger out, as with a lineup like this they won’t last for ever…

(I must say, I never thought back in the eighties that I’d ever end up sharing a stage with The Fall! – Ian)
