Info provided by the Event Organiser
Hailing from the West Country, Siddy and sister Kit Bennett were raised by nomadic parents. Always on the move, being raised on boats, farms, in caravans and often on protest camps, the Bennett sisters have been strongly influenced both musically and morally by their bohemian upbringing.
Influence’s from Johnny Cash to The Clash, Patsy Cline to Sublime, meant that Siddy’s youth was spent listening to the very best Country and Punk artists. Known for her freewheeling, flower strewn, verbal dexterity, she enjoys singing from dusk till dawn at festivals and parties and even on the beach!

Candythief is singer-songwriter Diana de Cabarrus, who first emerged in association with Fence records. Drawing on alternative, folk, psych pop and indie influences, the songs are melody-driven and coloured by unusual song structures. Themes often deals in an uplifting way with the possibility that modern culture has sold us a bit of a lemon.
On record and live, Candythief supplies an invigoratingly vital alternative version of the female singer songwriter.
