    The Parcel Of Rogues

    • Time: 12:30pm
    • 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!"   www.parcel-of-rogues.co.uk

  • Sicknote Steve 1 2016

    Sicknote Steve

    • Time: 4:30pm
    • 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.
