Highlights include multi-million selling pop-rock band SCOUTING FOR GIRLS’ ROY STRIDE playing a special one-off acoustic show playing all the bands hits including “She’s So Lovely”, “Heartbeat” and “Elvis Ain’t Dead”. Merging elements of hip hop, acoustic and guitar and pop, singer-songwriter LUCY SPRAGGAN is proving to be one of the most interesting, unpredictable, and exciting acts on the circuit.
MAD DOG MCREA blend a unique mixture of folk rock, pop, gypsy jazz, bluegrass and ‘shake your ass’ music. From self-penned songs of adventure, drinking, love and life, to traditional songs of gypsies, fairies, legless pirates and black flies – Mad Dog never fail to capture their audience with their infectious songs.
Folk troubadour BEANS ON TOAST tours constantly and has gigged and played festivals all over the world. The Beans on Toast live show is an odd and unpredictable experience. A singer, songwriter and storyteller his self-deprecating quality is not something you often see, but it breaks down the barrier between musician and audience, creating a sense of equality.
The surreal punk, funk, electric comedy phenomenon MIK ARTISTIK’S EGO TRIP return to the West Country. The trio have a growing national reputation after being championed by the likes of Iggy Pop, Tom Robinson and have played 100 shows over the last 11 Glastonbury Festivals. JOHN OTWAY is a totally unique performer and self-confessed “Rock & Roll’s Greatest Failure with his hilarious on-stage antics having to be seen to be believed!
Firm local favourites THE UNRAVELLING WILBURYS return stealing the big hits of the supergroup The Travelling Wilburys, also playing some of the hits of the best of their incognito members, Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne and Bob Dylan. A powerful mix of Soul injected Blues/R’n’B/Rock’n’Roll will be on display as RUZZ GUITAR’S BLUES REVUE headline a fantastic event with special guest Pete Gage.
The newly refurbished Grain Café Bar will be re-opening alongside the venue’s box office from Monday 2nd November. With both open from 10am – 8pm, Monday to Saturday, with the café offering speciality teas and coffee’s with some exciting new food options in the early evening.
