“Who indeed”, I hear you say.
This year we have brought together a fantastic group of musicians to entertain you throughout the weekend evenings. We have chosen a theme for the weekend as usual, and this year we are returning to an old favourite.
The 70s era
So. Who’s on the bill?
Sam writes and performs his own music which blends reggae, folk, jazz, blues (and more) with a genuine message of harmony, drawing influence from artists including Xavier Rudd, Jack Johnson & Jason Mraz.
More recently Sam has started playing gigs with his father-in-law, brother-in-law and friend (Jon Parry) in pubs across Somerset with The Sheriff. They perform Irish, bluegrass and blues music!
The Sheriff Project
For the last 7 years, Verdisa have been sharing their original sound, playing hundred of gigs across the UK & Europe and pushing to be a positive voice in the UK music industry. Their feel for a wide range of music is extraordinary, fusing many genres with a genuine message of harmony and positivity.
Highlights include 20 date tours in UK & Ireland, supporting world class musicians, performing the UK’s top festivals and playing live on BBC Radio 2. Verdisa never cease to get people on their feet, singing and dancing with a smile.
“It just sounds great …. It’s a beautiful combination of voices” – Claire Balding (BBC Radio 2)
“We rarely come across a band that impress us and make us feel more happy to be alive” – Mike Love
“The perfect blend of blues, jazz, funk and soul!” – Graham Maclean (Ents24)
Their debut release Awake EP (2016) includes some of their best known live songs, this was followed by Juno (debut album) in 2017 which received critical acclaim for songs ‘Harbour Masters House‘ & ‘Heavenly Gates‘. Tuning to 432hz they strive to bring a natural sound to the listeners and play every show with passion and enthusiasm. These young energetic and soulful musicians are not to be missed!

Three Day Week
Three Day Week are a 1970’s band based in Bristol. We were cryogenically frozen in 1980 as we didn’t want to live in a decade where Chris de Burgh was famous.
Eventually, Dave’s wife needed some shelves putting up, so she thawed us out in 2016 and we played a gig. Since then she’s been trying to freeze us again (Dave is not good at DIY…). While we miss the 70s, our mojos have developed a love of freedom and we’ve been evading capture ever since, bringing the 70s back to life by playing cover versions of classic glam and kitch songs from that most musical of decades.
