Kids craft and activities in the afternoon.
Come on down and soak up the summer festival vibes
*** Snufkin - the band ***
"Silky vocals jangle towards rousing harmonies between beautiful violin solos and finely mastered acoustic guitar from twisted neo-folk band Snufkin. Expect exhilarating toe-tapping rhythm and lifting intricate melodies with some tracks playing a cursory nod to their very own brand of filthy swing." - Lotte, The Prince Albert, Stroud
"Snufkin has a knees up on valium feel to him- still folky and reflective, gentle and chilled, but decidedly more forward in the motion of the songs!" - Pete, Stacked! Promotions
*** Jack Harris ***
I write songs drawing on Folk and Blues traditions. Some are about dead poets, others the color of potato flowers.
‘Jack Harris' mastery of the guitar and his passionate singing frame the delivery of some of the loveliest language in contemporary song. .....Mr. Harris is a born poet, and it would be a mistake to say he is destined for greatness. He is already there.’
- Andrew Calhoun of Waterbug Records
‘Gave me goosebumps’ - Eric Taylor
*** Tom Hyatt & Maya McCourt ***
"Tom Hyatt tends to work solo, delivering his clarion tenor voice and songs from behind a propulsive, percussive acoustic guitar or from the stool of a fluid, contemplative piano. At this gig, he’ll be playing with a regular collaborator, cellist Maya McCourt (also of Euro-American folk collision Various Guises and Dana Immanuel’s Stolen Band)" – Dann Chinn, Misfit City
*** Alice Phelps ***
Creating ambient lilting rhythmic harmonies with the harp allowing the bellowing husky vocals to be perfectly contrasted in a very unusual but beautiful way! Influenced by folk from near and far, irish to chinese, Alice blends this with non traditional and blues infused melodies.
*** Pete Strings ***
Pete is a local guitar legend and will be playing an accoustic set. A very rare ocassion to see him perform live!
Fiddly Diddly is a monthly night at the Lamb, an informal folk jam session. At Lambstock some of Fiddly Diddly's finest regular musicians will be bringing you a showcase of their talent.
*** Ðoctor Yåh Yåh ***
When the Voodoo of rock’n’roll blues was in town, it encompassed them, and there was no turning back. Rising from the ensuing quagmire was Ðoctor Yåh Yåh, and no eardrum was safe. Be on your guard, when Ðoctor Yåh Yåh is in town.
*** The Ha'pennies ***
*** Jack Pout ***
Jack Pout is a BBC Folk award nominated singer/songwriter from Norwich, based in Brighton. Inspired by the revivalist musicians of the 60's and 70's, Jack's music carries nuances of numerous influences such as John Martyn, Captain Beefheart, The Faces and Chris Smither but with an individuality that makes his music inimitably his.
His honest, and often deeply personal, style of writing is married with a love for humour; live shows are known for their friendly and conversational style with audiences and feared for his love of puns.
*** Joe Strouzer***
A harmonica player, blues shouter and guitar picker, Joe Strouzer sings songs from his travels from Newcastle to New Orleans and a hell of a lot of places in between. His driving resonator guitar is coupled with true harmonica voodoo and biting songwriting of modern trouble, heartpains, moonlit trysts, drinking and devilment, peppered with a rich history of blues.
"The only British guy I've ever liked" Blind Texas Marlin
