Line up (Saturday only)

Party the night away to the following bands that will be entertaining the crowds from 6pm till late.

Joe Below
Joe Below are a house rocking R n B band playing tunes by Robert Cray, Freddie King, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, The Rolling Stones, JJ Cale and the Fabulous Thunderbirds.

Mitch Laddie Band
Mitch Laddie Band's style is genre destroying. Commentators have declared him the future for those who are yearning for an artist who delivers pure music. He has released two albums to critical acclaim, and is known throughout the European scene as a volcanic guitar genius with musical subtleties and a maturity far beyond his years, cemented when follow-up album "Burning Bridges" was voted 'Best Blues Album of 2012' by Blues & Soul Magazine.

Mitch is complemented by two extraordinary musicians: Matt Connor and Rhian Wilkinson. Influenced by Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Johnson, Michael Jackson, Prince and The Police, Mitch Laddie Band blend a plethora of styles into a unique and modern take on soulful, guitar driven music.

HEADLINER: Fat Medicine
Celtic rock'n reel band from Marske-by-the-Sea. Their sheer enjoyment of music comes through in their highly entertaining performances, covering everything from Irish traditional jigs and reels to Pogues covers. Fat Medicine add a vibrant punch to the folk music scene being once described as 'a lucid beacon of heartfelt musical creativity, stomped out in a wacko windmill of superb music'. A prescription to cure all ills from the Celtic specialists.
