Friday 9th August

  • Luke Doherty

    Luke Doherty Band

    • Time: 7:30pm
    • Info: Luke Doherty was born on 29th March 1994, in Newport, Gwent. He had an interest in music at a very young age. Although no one in his family play an instrument, he was determined to learn to play something, and at the age of five he started playing piano, but didn’t like it. He then asked to play the drums but was told by a drum teacher he was way too young and to wait a couple of years. He then settled on a half size acoustic guitar which he had to give up after three months due to medical reasons. At seven and a half he was nagging his parents again to learn guitar, so they bought him a second hand half size electric guitar and a second hand amp and he has never looked back. He instantly became hooked on blues, intently watching any blues musicians he could find on TV or DVD.
  • Sicknote Steve 1 2016

    Sicknote Steve

    • Time: 9:30pm
    • Info:  I'm assuming here that Sicknote Steve could be a bit like Seasick Steve.  Do you like your blues played on rudimentary instruments and hollered as if your life depended on it? Do you long for the days when Seasick Steve played small clubs and didn’t command such a hefty entrance fee, well if you answered yes to the following couple of questions salvation could be in hand. Whilst stumbling around at Upton Blues Festival, we chanced upon Mr Sicknote Steve, a man who know’s a think about feral howling blues and recreating that authentic Seasick sound.

Saturday 10th August

  • Tarion 2017


    • Time: 12:30pm
    • Info: Tarion are a female rock band from S E Wales, playing an original upbeat exciting live set...lil bit rocky, lil bit funky, lil bit punky. Mesmerising inspiring vocals from captivating front singer J, funky chunky guitar riffs by Clare, steady baselines from Judybass, and ripping beats from awesome drummer Sali.
  • Toriah Fontaine

    Toriah Fontaine

    • Time: 2:00pm
    • Info: “Her voice is powerful, she sings with passion and spirit and delivers her brand of blues in a way that entrances her audience. Think Amy Winehouse crossed with Etta James, a sprinkling of Sister Rosetta Tharpe and a soupcon of Mavis Staples and you'll be in the right area”. Toriah and the band have played some pretty big stages, including the British main stage at the Great British Rock and Blues Festival in Colne.    
  • Albino Frogs 2019

    The Albino Frogs

    • Time: 4:30pm

  • Parcel Of Rogues 2013

    The Parcel Of Rogues

    • Time: 8:30pm
    • Info: The Parcel Of Rogues are a folk rock band playing an eclectic mix of folk, roots, and rock based music. The repertoire is widely diverse, from driving foot stompers to slow atmospheric ballads, with a selection of traditional and Irish folk songs, plus a wide range in between! All performed with excellent musicianship, vocal harmonies and peppered with a great deal of fun, they are always well received by their audiences. The band likes to get the audience involved, singing and dancing, and are not a ‘finger in the ear’ type of band by any means! The most frequently heard comments about the band: "What a breath of fresh air these guys are - definitely not the same old, same-old!"
