The Rosianna Ceilidh Band

Originally formed from members of The Bootleggers Band who played for the Scunthorpe based Appalachian Dance display team, "The Bootleggers".

Society Of Strange Living

The society have been steaming along for over a year and a half now, honing our live show - last year we gained our first festival badges with Landed Festival, Mudfest, Shanti Fest, Harmfest and our own Strange Living Festival. We're currently finishing our debut E.P. in between touring commitments, which will be out and bubbling by the time the festival comes around. This year we want to be back knee deep in mud doing what we love! We're a tight-knit, friendly, crowd-pleasing music machine, and we want to spend our summer in wellies doing what we do best.
