This event has been and gone.
Formed in 1966 by Adge Cutler, the Bard of Avonmouth, this bunch of haystack-headed, cider-soaked and dung-booted, not-quite-so-young Avonside lads play good-time traditional Zummerzet Scrumpy 'n' Western music. The band has had considerable commercial success, from their 1967 anthem Drink Up Thy Zider, to the heights of the chart-topping Combine Harvester in 1976. Big in Nempnett Thrubwell, The Wurzels continue to play over 100 shows a year to sell out crowds all over the country, with regular festival appearances at Bestival, Guilfest, Finsbury Park and Glastonbury.
