BRITISH SEA POWER + SUPPORT
British Sea Power hit the Top 20 in 2017 with their sixth album "Let The Dancers Inherit The Party", adding pop immediacy to their modernist indie rock styling.
LOS PACAMINOS FEAT PAUL YOUNG + SUPPORT
This London-based party band is led by Paul Young, one of the UKs best loved singers. Paul formed Los Pacaminos to perform a hybrid of Tex-Mex and Americana.
Although Cara Dillon has won every BBC Radio 2 folk award going, this extraordinary Irish singer makes music that transcends genres and crosses barriers. Formerly with the supergroup, Equation, Cara is perhaps best known for her album "Hill of Thieves".
THEA GILMORE + MATT OWENS
Currently recording the follow-up to her 2017 Top 40 album "The Counterweight", Nantwich resident and festival co-founder, Thea Gilmore, brings her honeyed tones and acerbic lyrical genius to the Civic Hall.
STEVE HOGARTH OF MARILLION
Though known widely since 1989 as lead singer for Marillion, Steve Hogarth has always enjoyed a diverse, eclectic career with collaborators ranging from Julian Cope to John Otway.
JUDIE TZUKE WITH SPECIAL GUEST CHAZ THOROGOOD
Arriving on the scene in 1979 and flying in the face of every late 70s trend by simply producing beautiful, timeless writerly music, Judie Tzuke has long been assured a place in the roll call of classic English songwriters.
HORSE McDONALD + SUPPORT
Horse McDonald was described by Q as "Scottish and brilliant" and credited as owning "one of the finest voices of modern times, soul and intelligence combined".
CC SMUGGLERS + SUPPORT
Recently called "the best live band on the scene" by Cerys Matthews, CC Smugglers have in a short space of time gone from ‘guerrilla buskers’ to festival show-stoppers, sharing bills with Bruce Springsteen and Old Crow Medicine Show.
Matt Owens was a co-founder and ever present member of Indie-folk icons Noah And The Whale who sold over one million records in the UK alone. Matt is now recording his first solo album.
Listed recently as one of ELLE magazines “Top 100 Inspiring Women”, Grace Savage is a four time UK Beatbox champion. Join Grace for a Beatbox workshop.
