Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Having caused dancefloor mayhem from the Scottish Islands to the South of Italy, Sheelanagig are probably the most fun you can have with a fiddle, flute, guitar, double-bass and drums. They are as physically relentless on stage as their music is – playing a unique and energetic blend of Folk, Jazz and World Music.
Festival favourites at Glastonbury and Green Man their live show encompasses street theatre, elements of storytelling and acrobatics, and is sure to provoke a reaction – frenzied dancing and stage invasions are hazards on a really good night. They are a truly spellbinding band to see live.

Pete is a highly respected musician, both by his peers in the London Folk scene (Laura Marling as a band member, Mumford & Sons, Ethan Johns) and US artists such as Ryan Adams. Whilst his guitar style owes much to British folk guitarists of the 1960s such as Bert Jansch and John Martyn, his songwriting owes more to American songwriters such as Paul Simon, Neil Young and indeed Ryan Adams- whom he cites as an influence and now a fan.
Pete Roe tour dates
The first poet to get a million pound record deal. A fascinating combination of performance poetry, social commentary and stand up. Imagine Oscar Wilde sharing a drink with Joe Strummer whilst in the background John Peel puts on some choice tunes.
'Never mind the Bellocs, Young has a penchant for exquisitely savage punchlines...and is treating the comedy circuit to some rather witty rhymes. He also has a great voice, Tom Baker-meets-town cryer, making the microphone redundant' (London Evening Standard).
