Saturday 27th

Noon to 5pm - The Bottles

8pm to 11 pm - Greenstone Cowboys

The Bottles:

The Bottles are: Jimmy- double bass;  Dave- drums/washboard, backing vocals and percussion; Ade- vocals, rhythm/lead guitar, harmonica, kazoo;  Jim- vocals, 6 / 12 string guitar.

Formed originally for a Crabble Corn Mill fund raiser from several bands, they enjoyed themselves so much that The Bottles became a regular line up, that has performed in pubs, clubs, festivals and charity events around the world.

Drawing from trad and modern British, Irish, Scottish and American Folk, as well as popular songs from past decades, they play an eclectic mix of music, all with an acoustic sound that will entertain without overpowering an audience.

Greenstone Cowboys:

They hail from the banks of the river Clyde on the west coast of Scotland.  They are named after the iconic stones found on Isle of Iona, where the band's first public outing took place a few years ago bring in the New Year as part of the island's Hogmanay celebrations.

Drawing on their varied musical backgrounds, Robin (singer/songwriter) and Wicked Finger (picking guitar); Kevin (folk, pub-rock and classical chello), Andy (singing and hitting things with sticks), treat well known cover songs to a hippy/country/punk makeover. The treo's repertoire ranges from early Elvis, and 60's classics, through to Punk with the occasional cheesy country song thrown in for good measure.

Tasting Notes:  Goes well with any session ale or cider. Dancing recommended.

Sunday 28th

1pm to 6pm - Easy Street Buskers

Easy Street Buskers:

Adrian Dawkins assembles a group of varied muscians to entertain us at our beer and cider festivals, usually outside.  They play a varitety of country and folk music although this invariably depends on who Ade has managed to round up on the day (or who just turns up to play).
