Also.. the venue is right on top of the wolds with amazing views.. and even more amazing award winning ales!

Adrian Edmondson & The Bad Shepherds
Adrian Edmondson, (Vocals, mandolin), probably better known as a comedian in The Young Ones, Bottom and The Comic Strip Presents is joined by pipe virtuoso Troy Donockley and fiddler Andy Dinan. Starting out in 2008 they took the festival scene by storm in 2009 with their own brand of Folk/Punk, culminating in their being nominated for "Best Live Act" in the BBC 2 Awards. They have aldo recently launched their CD "Yan, Tan, Tethera, Methera" to much critical acclaim.

Katriona Gilmore & Jamie Roberts
Kat (ex Tiny Tin Lady, still with Rosie Doonan Band and GMO) and Jamie (also in Kerfuffle) need very little introduction after their appearance here at last year's festival. This hard working couple released their album "Shadows and Half Light" to rave reviews, and "wow" audiences wherever they appear. Don't be surprised to see Kat in one of her other musical guises during the festival.

Saturday 10th July.. 12 noon till 12 Midnight

Flossie Malavialle
French born Flossie who now lives in N E England captivates audiences with her "franglais" humour and beautiful singing. Recently toured with Show of Hands and accompanied by Keith Donnelly with Fairport Convention.

His latest album "Ziggurat" is a masterpiece of songs of love, greed, loss, war and gold. A master musician who's accomplishments include touring as guitarist with Ballet Rambert.

Edwina Hayes
"Local girl" Edwina needs no introduction having lately had her song "Feels Like Home" featured in the Hollywood movie "My Sisters's Keeper". Her busy gig list included the Nanci Griffiths UK Tour 2010 as well as solo appearances throughout the UK

The Duncan McFarlane Band
Probably the best Folk/Rock band on the scene, never fails to get everyone to their feet with strong British folk songs overridden with pumping riffs and boundless energy. The highlight of many festivals from Shrewsbury, Sidmouth and Otley guaranteed to lift you up.

Paul Liddell
Paul is already a veteran of the acoustic music world, and his unique approach to his art which includes live sampling, building up layers of guitar and percussion during a song, rising to a truly amazing crescendo.

The Gerry Mcneice Orchestra
Multi-instrumentalist Gerry and his new band (which can be found in many combinations) consists of Gerry, Kat Gilmore (fiddle, mandolin and vocals) Ruth Wilde (double bass) and Liam McNeice (guitar). Musical influences, too many to mention. New CD "Small Town Boy" a must have!

His album "Not Before Time" is a collection of 10 of his own songs written over a 4 year period and is a delightful listen.

Anna Shannon
Scarborough born Anna was born into a richly musical family with her grandfather being a concert pianist and her mother a jazz singer. It is then no surprise then that she became a multi-instrumentalist. To quote Vin Garbutt " Twice in the last few months I have had the honour of sharing the stage with Anna Shannon. She's a truly fine multi-instrumentalist, a great singer and as far as I am concerned, a major song writing talent. The clubs and festivals are yearning for what she has to offer"
