Phil Beer Band

Phil Beer Band
Plus support band: The Hawthornes

The Phil Beer Band performs a unique blend of folk and roll trawled from Phil's treasure trove of traditional tunes and American country rock.

The highly popular line up comprises Gareth Turner, Steve Crickett, Greg McDonald, Olivia Dunn and of course, Phil Beer and promises to deliver a lively cocktail of folk, rock, country and blues.

The Phil Beer Band evolved organically in the early to mid 90s at Maisemore in Gloucesteshire. It was a loose federation consisting of Phil Beer (Show of Hands) Nick Quarmby and Steve Crickett, all of whom lived close to each other, and melodeon player Gareth Turner from Northamptonshire. There was a need in the community for a band to play local events and ceilidhs and, following in the tradition set by the Albion Band (of which both Gareth and Phil were former members) the band always interspersed the dances with the odd song.

Basically, over a long period of time, it has evolved into a 'Folk n Roll' band with country rock overtones. It is the vehicle for Phil to return to the electric guitar and to have a good time with his mates. The band has seen many members and many tours but has been fairly inactive in the last five years. That's about to change. The Band's first full tour for a long time takes place next May with a new studio album in place. They look forward to seeing you then.

Press Reviews:

‘Where Steve Earle and Richard Thompson collide’ - The Guardian

‘Phil Beer can turn his hand to almost every stringed instrument known to man’ - The Scotsman

‘The Band offers a fast, frenetic, feel-good evening with a generous helping of humour and sees Phil picking up his electric guitar for a change’ - North Devon Echo

The Hawthornes

Since forming in March 2013, The Hawthornes have already chalked up an impressive resume. Relentlessly playing all over the country for anyone who will listen, they have already obtained a strong, loyal following thanks in part to landing top support slots with acts such as The Phil Beer Band (of Show of Hands), Terry & Gerry, 3 Daft Monkeys and Gerry Colvin (of ColvinQuarmby). During this time they have also managed to release their debut album ‘Stoneville Street’ to critical acclaim and play top grass roots festivals such as New Forest Folk Festival, Lakefest and Y Not! Festival. The Hawthornes gig as often as possible and are also currently working on the ‘difficult second album’ looking to be released in 2017!

John Doyle

John Doyle

The Irish guitar wizard. Name many of the most notable recordings and/or performers in Irish music and it's a fair bet that John Doyle had something to do with them. Liz Carroll, Eileen Ivers, Karan Casey, Solas, Michael Black, Mary Black, the trio of McCusker, McGoldrick and Doyle; and now Usher's Island (Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny, Mike McGoldrick, Paddy Glackin and John Doyle) - a veritable who's who of the greatest names in Irish music. These are just a very few of the stellar artists for whom John Doyle's signature guitar sound, singing or song writing is essential.


Impossibly in demand in the studio and on the road, immensely talented and blessed with an acute ear, a wicked sense of rhythm and seemingly endless stream of magic in his playing, composing, performing and producing, John Doyle is solidly establishing himself as one of the most versatile, creative and prolific voices in folk and traditional Irish music.


"A complete rhythm section all on his own" (Chicago Tribune).

"More talent than anybody deserves to have all to themselves" (Philadelphia News).

"Doyle on guitar has risen to a level occupied by him alone. No one in Irish traditional music is a better guitarist than him right now." (The Wall Street Journal).

Dracula: The Bloody Truth

Dracula: The Bloody Truth

Le Navet Bete in association with Exeter Northcott Theatre

Recommended age: 8+


‘Dracula: The Bloody Truth’ is a theatrical retelling of Bram Stoker’s classic novel. It will expose that the events recorded in 1897 were not fiction at all....but fact. This brand new comedy theatre show will take audiences on a journey across Europe from the dark and sinister Transylvanian mountains to the awkwardly charming seaside town of Whitby and into the world of the supernatural, educating us all on the perils of dealing with vampires.


Exeter based Le Navet Bete (previously at The Beehive with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and Dick Tracy) are committed to creating hilarious theatre shows using engaging and creative storytelling. Set shortly after 1897 audiences will be introduced to Professor Abraham Van Helsing educating the world on the actual events of Dracula through his first ever theatre tour which he himself has produced and is in fact...starring in!


Expect Professor Van Helsing and the three actors he has commissioned to present this true story through the mediums of song, dance, soliloquy, shadow puppets and even some Victorian parlour tricks that will always go exactly as planned...supposedly.


Directed by John Nicholson (Peepolykus) ‘Dracula: The Bloody Truth’ promises to have the vampires back in the ground and leave the audience flying high.

The Jigantics

The Jigantics

+ Support artist: Roseanna Ball


"A fabulous fusion of blues, rock, folk and Americana that blew the socks off our audience. Absolute class."

Steve Sheldon www.folkicons.co.uk


“The Jigantics are a band with a vision. Five musicians who have the talent and flexibility to deliver rousing performances across an astoundingly diverse range of material!” FolkRadio.co.uk


The Jigantics are an award-nominated band from the West of England whom the press has described as one of Roots music's super groups. Having built up a deserved reputation as one of the UK’s “must see” live acts, July 2016 heralded the arrival of The Jigantics sophomore release SECONDS OUT. Fatea magazine said "Seconds Out certainly disproves the theory that the best 'Americana' and 'Roots' albums are produced by our North American buddies, that much is for sure. This is an album that should, if there is any justice or taste, take The Jigantics up to the next level, and national recognition. The quality on offer here is nothing short of breath-taking.”


Their debut album “Daisy Roots” featured on radio playlists in over 36 countries and garnered critical acclaim from all quarters, described as “something very special” and “Americana of the highest quality.


Live, The Jigantics are an awesome band. There’s no auto pilot here, no going through the motions. The joy of making music translates easily to the audience who go home feeling they’ve been part of something very special. Never afraid to mix musical styles, but always with a touch of class, The Jigantics foot-tapping, feel good and totally convincing tearjerkers makes for a remarkable and spellbinding evenings’ entertainment.


The Jigantics are:

Rick Edwards: Slide guitar, acoustic & electric guitar, vocals.

Mark Cole: Accordions, harmonica, mandola, vocals.

Lyndon Webb: Guitars, vocals, piano, strings, mandolin

Lively and bright, this is a comprehensive look at ways in which activists and everyday citizens are making the world a better, greener, more sustainable place. A feel-good, feel-active eco-doc that shows the emergence of what could be tomorrow's world.

Directed by Christopher Scott

"We are not wholly bad or good, who live our lives under Milk Wood."


"Dylan Thomas's beautiful, bawdy, affectionate, reckless and deeply original play was justly crowned at its first performance by a storm of cheers." So wrote The Times on Under Milk Wood's stage debut.


In the fictitious fishing village of Llareggub, this twenty four hour peek into the lives and loves of the likes of Captain Cat, Polly Garter and Willy Nilly has continued to enthral its audiences ever since. With its canvas of nonsense gossip, feuds, affairs, fights, frauds and practical jokes, the play pulses with the vitality and relish of real life characters re-living their dreams and desires. Come closer now, and enter the world of Under Milk Wood.


"To begin at the beginning: It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black, the cobbledstreets silent and the hunched courters'-and-rabbits' wood limping invisible down to the sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboat-bobbing sea."

The Eskies

The Eskies
Having been cast out, blacklisted, rejected and ejected from gentlemen’s clubs far and wide, five dejected cast asides joined forces in what was to be their own celebration of commonality.

Purveyors of music that meanders from sea soaked waltz to Italian tarantella, from Brassy funeral march-esque lament to weep along Klezmar knees up, from chain gang holler to rag time finger snap. Skipping through the dark side of anything that makes you want to dance, steeped in melodrama and usually with not a small amount of tongue in cheek.

The Eskies have brought this unique brand of folk noir/gypsy jazz/sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle to ballrooms and booze houses far and wide, sullying soirees and lowering inhibitions of get togethers and social occasions wherever they have ventured.

Their debut album ‘After The Sherry Went Round’ is in shops now and is also available for download from iTunes.

“Like a wagon storming the citadel, The Eskies’ brand of gothic-tinged gypsy-folk swaggers out of the speakers with intent.” – Hot Press Magazine

“From the sinister sway of ‘Eloise’ through to the jaunty ‘Jesus Don’t Save Me’ and the driving ‘Jailhouse Sun’, The Eskies have delivered a fascinating blend of fun-fuelled folk.” – The Independent

Rousing songs of rebellion are sung by brothers David Delarre (Eliza Carthy, Tred) and fiddler James Delarre (Saul Rose & James Delarre, Topette) all underpinned by the virtuosic bellowing of Nick Cooke’s melodeon (Kate Rusby, Jim Moray) and a solid rhythm section with Danny Crump on Bass and Lee Richardson (Diverted, Extreme Music) on Drums.
