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

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

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

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

New year, new banjoplayer!

Happy 2017 folks – and as John Lennon nearly said, let’s hope it’s a good one, with plenty of beer! Good news for the New Year is that the banjo vacancy has been filled, and 5-string duties are now in the capable hands of Mark Styles, so we’re back up to full fighting strength once

calling all banjoplayers!

Sadly it seems we have to say goodbye to Johnny Gould, our banjoplayer for the last couple of years. He’s been struggling with other commitments for a while now and is having to spend a lot of his time in Denmark for the foreseeable future, which makes rehearsing and gigging well-nigh impossible, so he’s regretfully

First festival announced for 2017!

On a particularly dark and dismal day in November, it’s great to have some good news at last – we’ll be appearing on the Woodland Stage on Sunday 28th May at Bearded Theory at Catton Hall in South Derbyshire! The full lineup is still being announced, but Reverend and the Makers are headlining that stage on

sorry folks…

…for the recent gig cancellations – drummer DFP fell off a horse and dislocated his shoulder a few weeks ago, then just as he was recovering fell over and badly damaged his hands on tarmac. He’s on the mend, but at time of writing can’t pick up a drumstick let alone do any drumming. We’ll

Looks like summer’s over…

…as the Giglist is empty again! Never mind, we’ll see if we can get a few more dates in there before too long – don’t forget to let us know via Facebook or the Contact page if there’s anywhere you’d like the band to play, or just to get in touch and say hello. It’s

FESTIBELL!

Our last festival of the year tonight, in Chris and Ruth’s home village of Broughton Gifford – a 2 day affair in aid of Dorothy House Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Support, so hope it goes well despite the rather dodgy weather at the moment… Here’s a rather splendid picture by Terri Johnson of our appearance
