What’s On – Music

In the hub of the festival, entertainment will be provided by brilliant local bands The Fordsons and Slippery Slope.


Enjoy the Fordsons old-time, mountain and early bluegrass music from the Appalachias, music rooted in the folk ballads and traditional tunes imported to the USA by immigrants from the British Isles.


Slippery Slope’s globe-trotting repertoire ranges from Irish folk to ska, Klezmer to French chanson. With steel pan adding a joyous Caribbean flavour to the more traditional folk group instrumentation of guitar, accordion and fiddle, they are guaranteed to get your toes tapping!
