South Essex Bluegrass Festival9pm
Bulphan Village Hall, Church Road, Bulphan RM14 3RU
Our first band gig of 2018! We're looking forward to performing at South Essex Bluegrass Festival for the first time. We've heard all about it, by all accounts a friendly little festival tucked away in the countryside a few miles north of Grays, at Bulphan Village Hall. There is an excellent line-up of British and American bands performing and the festival runs from 12th - 15th July. With instrument workshops and jam sessions as well as the extensive concert programme, this will be a cracking weekend.
We play on Friday night, and will be performing as a five-piece, with supersub deps Kieran Towers and Dick Embery on fiddle and bass respectively. For more info on the festival programme visit the South Essex Bluegrass Festival website.

We're delighted to be performing at the legendary Didmarton Bluegrass Festival this year - one of the major events on the UK bluegrass scene and always a great and fun gathering of musicians and acoustic music fans from across the country. We're thrilled to be on the line-up among a raft of top class American, British and continental European bands including Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike (USA), G-Runs 'n' Roses (Czech Republic), Midnight Skyracer (UK) and lots more.
The festival runs from 31st August - 2nd September, at Kemble airfield near Cirencester. In addition to the programmed concerts, instrument workshops, countless jam sessions, the real ale bars and nightly bonfire organised by our hosts, Ogri Motorcycle Club, always make Didmarton a memorable and enjoyable weekend.

We're back at the delightful Cornish Bluegrass Festival this September - always a great occasion and located just outside Newquay, so you can combine it with exploring the beautiful beaches of the north Cornish coast. Bands on the bill include the entertaining White Top Mountain Band from Virginia (USA), the Goat Roper Rodeo Band and Cardboard Fox.
The festival runs from 14th - 16th September, at Hendra Holiday Park near Newquay, so you can rent a static caravan and "camp" in luxury if you want. For more information visit the Cornish Bluegrass Festival website.
