Featuring

Caravan

Caravan appearing at this event

Caravan are considered by many to be the undisputed, unsung heroes of the British Prog movement. Often quoted as being one of the most formidable acts to emerge from the '60s progressive rock scene, over the years they have managed to achieve cult status and have maintained a passionate and diehard following. Originally formed in Canterbury in 1968, Caravan were at the heart of the 1970s burgeoning Canterbury rock movement, and produced their own brand of "superior pop music, full of taste, craftsmanship and hard work" (NME) and packed venues worldwide. The current Caravan line-up includes Pye Hastings (1968 founding member: guitar, lead vocals), Geoffrey Richardson (joined 1972: viola, guitar, flute, vocals), Jan Schelhaas (keyboards), Jim Leverton (bass, vocals) and Mark Walker (drums, percussion).

James & Black

James & Black appearing at this event

Bruce James and Bella Black joined musical forces in Austin, Texas in 2011 and have been on a mission spreading the word of 'Guerrilla Soul' ever since. The roots of their music spring from the tradition of the Southern Soul from Texas, New Orleans and Memphis, yet they are not a throwback. The foundation of James & Black is the voices and stories in their songs.

The Hut People

The Hut People appearing at this event

One of the hottest acts to come out of the Yorkshire folk scene, they take the audience on a voyage across the globe with their material. They perform a unique blend of home-grown tunes mixed with British, Nordic and European folk music, perfectly formed and embellished with the driving accordion and a mind-boggling array of exotic percussion.
