The evening event for the 8th Somerset Cider and Cheese Fayre brings together two amazing talents.
The cult British band Tankus the Henge, known for their wild showmanship and musical style, brilliantly termed 'Gonzo Rock n' Roll' - think New Orleans Jazz, Psychedelic Rock and 70's funk.
Our other act are the fabulous Chainska Brassika. Firm party favourites with their contagious horn driven ska anthems who have regularly opened for Madness on tours, we can't wait to welcome them to the stage.
Don't miss this brilliant event which happens in the evening following our day of celebration of all things food and drink in Somerset and more.
Tankus The Henge
The world of Tankus the Henge is uplifting and wild, dark and heartfelt. A 6 piece powerhouse of a band drawing visual and musical influences from old time Fairgrounds to modern day Circus; The Beatles to Tom Waits and Gogol Bordello to Radiohead, they embody a look and a sound that lies somewhere between their South East London home and the carnival town of New Orleans

The mischievous rabble from London have been causing mischief since school, spreading their contagious horn driven ska anthems across the UK, mainland Europe and beyond. Chainska Brassika are firm party favourites, getting crowds rocking from Glastonbury to Nottinghill Carnival, Rototom Sunplash to Outlook - and even touring the island of Jamaica. Well known for regularly opening for UK ska legends Madness, Chainska are at the forefront of the new UK ska movement, and their crazy live show have got the band regularly onto europe’s biggest stages. Their debut album 'Skinna' was released in late 2015, being championed by reggae DJ David Rodigan and backed with recently being crowned winners of the World Reggae Contest in Poland, beating over 100 bands from 28 countries - despite being predominantly a ska band. This earned the band a trip to record their follow up album in Jamaica at Harry J Studio's - famous for where Bob Marley & The Wailers recorded the albums Natty Dread, Catch A Fire, Rastaman Vibration & Burnin'.
