With soulful vocals, soaring twin guitars and a truly infectious groove, the energetic live show will get you up and dancing!
A lovely blend of folk music to both excite and soothe the soul. Andrew King – guitar and vocals; Hugh Smythe – bass, guitar , harmonica and vocals; Terry Thomas – guitar , mandolin and vocals. Tickets available from: Lastmark Tickets
Local folk funkers are back again! As you all know, we'll be closed for the festival so these guys will be giving us a good send off until we reopen in June. Don't miss out on your chance to hear the first live performance of their brand new album!
For the first time, Hay welcomes the extraordinary vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Richard Navarro.
Evocative and uplifting, his original songs take the folk traditions of melody and storytelling and supercharge them through live looping and improvisation. Along with Nicholas Thurston (double bass/guitar/synths), the duo have regularly supported Joan Armatrading on her UK tours and are touring their powerful new collection of songs - 'Firewatching' - throughout 2017.
"Richard is a genius. He has exalted words in such a way that angels could hear them." Lemn Sissay
"Finely-crafted songwriting" Joan Armatrading
"A wonderful voice" Susan Marling, Radio 2
"Richard is an outstanding performer, with a unique sound that moves from the epic soundtrack to the intimate with ease." Bern Leckie
An exciting melting pot of musical and cultural influences with educated, street-sussed sounds. From sleek Ska to deadly Dub, Latin to raucous Rock N Roll and even Portuguese rap, these guys are as musically versed as they come. You can expect a joyous, caotic and amazingly lively performance!
A bast of rhythm and blues, backed with sharp drums and brazen riffs. With obscure lyrical narratives, their unique psychedelic style of contemporary rock 'n' roll is an infectious collage of sounds. We had them at the globe a few months ago and are excited to have them back!
