Music from local bands

While you're enjoying your meal or browsing the stalls, you will be entertained by music from local bands.

We are very pleased to announce the first performers for this year's event:

Dolly and the Clothes Pegs

Dolly and the Clothes PegsHailin' from the Kennet Delta, we are what you might call a Riverbilly band. Our repertoire dips into the archive of Alan Lomax, covers and own songs.



The Newtowners

The Newtowners/WoodchucksThe Newtowners are a group of musical friends who play Old-Time music, from the Appalachian Region of America. It's the live music of family and friends who get together and play while sitting on the back porch, enjoying each others company and a few snacks. There's no playlist, someone suggests a tune, and everyone else joins in to the best of their ability. Fun guaranteed. Yee Haw!

Jonny Owens
