2022 Festival line-up
quite possibly one of the best blues & roots duo's emerging on the uk blues scene. they released their debut ep "shotgun shack" in 2021 which was received well by the music press and was also played widely on uk blues radio.
"crackles with intensity and intent" - blues in britain
"Exceptionally gritty, stomping blues" - rootstime
"primeval blues delivered with passion" - Planet rock
jed potts & the hillman hunters
jed potts is an edinburgh-based guitarist and vocalist. blues matters included him in their august 2018 issue as part of a feature on new talent called "blue bloods".
these guys are sensational with great song writing & superb guitar hooks.
“Blues Titans Jed Potts & the Hillman Hunters are as timeless as the Classic British car but with the performance, power and refinement of a Formula One racer” - Dave scott, blues in britain.
one vocal, one blues harp and two guitars are what makes the jujubes authentic yet unique blues sound.
their debut album "where are we now" received plenty of airplay across uk blues radio and received great reviews.
"it is great to listen to something that reminds you how the raw simplicity of blues can be carried forward and isn't just left in the archives of time" - ben darwin - blues from the ouse on jorvik radio
"The jujubes are possessors of ripped open, raw & dirty blues souls - joan armstrong - tuning up on wasp radio
Yes, they are back again. this is one of the perks when the two festival organisers are in the band.
2022 will be the 10th anniversary of the band. they have seen various name changes and band members throughout the years but now have an absolute killer line up and have started to get noticed.
here is what blues matters had to say...
"Tight band, great chemistry and just musicians having fun. What else do you need?"
"This is what live music is all about, magic moments that you can't get in any other medium"
"Tremendous quality that really couldn't be bettered for style and substance" - Colin Campbell - Blues matters
five points gang
quite possibly one of the most exciting trio's to emerge on the uk blues scene in the past year. they released their debut album "wanted" to critical acclaim in 2021 and received national radio airplay. it won't be too long before five points gang hit the big time so we'll get them whilst we still can.
powerful, funkin' bluesin' & rockin' is what you can expect from these guys. just superb!
Redfish are a blistering UK based blues band.
their debut album "souls" received critical acclaim and received radio airplay across the uk.
the band has developed a delicious, bubbling gumbo of blues, soul, funk, and jazz, with live performances defined by a swirling dynamic energy (and restraint) and the visibly obvious delight of personal interaction, in the moment, between five performers at the top of their game.
