  • Gren Bartley – Effortlessly astonishing guitar and banjo playing and a soft absorbing voice to take you on a journey through the ever growing link between traditional English songs to the darkest American blues ballads.
  • John Tams and Barry Coupe – Representing the best in British music, John is renowned for his work with The National Theatre, as rifleman Daniel Hagman in the Sharpe TV series and is a member of Home Service voted Best Live Act at this yeare's BBC2 Folk Awards. Barry is part of Coupe Boyes and Simpson who regaled last years Festival auduience with their fine harmonies.
  • Blackbeard's Tea Party – To finish off the night we have one enormous, sing-along, stomp-along, dance-along, monster of a folk band. These kids just won't sit still and neither will you. Bring your dancing pumps (or wellies!)

…..and that's not all in and around the pub all over the weekend there will be sessions, singarounds, dance displayes and, of course, on Sunday, The World Dry Foam Flinging Championships.
