Festival Artists Line Up (A-Z)
Song & Music
Here is probably one of the best concert and song artist lists that we have put on for a long time. We are really please to have the opportunityfor the WILSON FAMILY to be with us again. Not only are they truly wonderful singers but they have just completed a tour and an album with none other than STING!.
Finally after many years of trying, we have a one off performance of the Demon Barbers XL show. This is being combined with an afternoon workshop including some of Chippenhams street dancers to find out all about the links between Hip Hop style dance and traditional dance like clog and Morris. Some fabulous music and some jaw dropping dancing too. See The Special Concerts section for details on tickets soon. Keep your eye on the list and our facebook and twitter pages for regular updates on artists and shows.
Concert Arranger and Festival Organiser
We are hoping to put on 3 different shows this year between 6.30pm and 8.30pm in the Island park big tent.
Saturday is a show celebrating the park, the river, the town and where it sits within the landscape of the area and will be a fascinating array of song, music, dance and narration. More on this soon.
Sunday will be Irish Night! Along with some of the Bath Irish Music Session players we will see a truly brilliant bit of the Irish "Craic". Donal McGuire will attempt to hold the whole thing together.
Monday Night sees the Festival Big Top shows ending in a massively brilliant show with the Demon Barbers. This will be loud and proud and will really shake the pigeons out of the trees. More in the blog pages and on Facebook & Twitter soon.
