Showcasing the quality of live music in the UK; with The Pretty Things headlining and five other very different, but striking bands, this will undoubtedly be another a great festival and an occasion not to miss! After more than 45 years of continuous service, The Pretty Things remain a significant, challenging force in rock and roll. Despite their veteran status, their contemporary relevance, undiminished energy & inspirational commitment inspire emerging generations of new artists and young fans, whilst retaining their devoted, fanatical, core fan base. Through their entire career, The Pretty Things have written, performed, and created informed, intelligent, ground-breaking, and original music, enabled by powerful, melodic writing that has kept this incredible band alive for nearly half a century….. Have a walk down memory lane and see the band play “Singapore Silk Torpedo” on The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1974 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRVSSwJYqh0&feature=youtu.be and then 43 years on, “Don’t Bring Me Down” live in Munich in 2017 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xn4sgBD9LyE This year’s full line-up comprises of: Pretty Things – Need anything else be said! Aynsley Lister – an incredible guitarist whose brand of blues-based rock delivers contemporary song writing fuelled with the kind of heart and soul that’s missing from so much modern music! Simon McBride – after back-pedalling on his solo career to start a family, Simon McBride “the man who everyone wants in their band” is back on the road with his own jet-fuelled outfit! Connor Selby Band – citing Eric Clapton as his first and current major influence, Connor places particular emphasis on his output with legends John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers and Cream! The Luke Doherty Band – Since he found an old music VHS in a cupboard when he was 7 years old, featuring several Blues players, Luke is never happier than when he is playing Blues! Deep Blue Sea – playing 21st century indie blues and in the finest blues traditions, their music is seldom predictable or generic – it reflects these times – good, bad, highs & lows!
