We were delighted to be able to fit in Emily to open our main stage. Her act is a fantastic fusion of electronic and traditional instruments. We look forward to seeing and hearing her in action. Emily J offers a unique DJ set electrified with acoustic and electric wind instruments, LED lights, glitter, accomplished musicianship and surprises. She fell in love with music through a classical education in flute playing, achieving a distinction in her Trinity College London ATCL diploma. In 2009 she discovered her passion for electronic music and built up an impressive track record of collaborations with
Playing festival 8 for the first time on our new Sounds Aloud Stage. For more than a decade, Lincoln’s Tiger Warsaw have been ploughing a charged, yet introspective furrow. Post-rock influences fight with heavier riffs to produce what can be an exhilarating live performance. Lyrics deal with anything from film stars to deeply entrenched in-jokes, creating an atmosphere bristling with tongue in cheek menace. https://open.spotify.com/artist/1Xl8xpEfIcLDifDQwDgTso?si=dPm2FR0_SzieqQarrGqcVA https://tigerwarsaw.bandcamp.com/
A late addition but a very worthy one..... Bartek Dabrowski is a classical guitarist from Gliwice, Poland whose finger-picking playing style and emotive soundtracks create powerful and immersive musical experiences.Bartek’s musical journey began as a young child in kindergarten, later followed by several years of practice at music school. However, he soon encountered a period of creative block, hardship and life circumstances which prevented him from playing the guitar. This barren period went on to last 7 years! It was only after his arrival in the UK (in 2013) that Bartek was able to pick up the guitar once more.
Opening the Party barn on Friday we have a local band showing some promise and their new energy seemed an appropriate way to kick off the live music. The Lamberts are a 5 piece alternative rock band that hail from the foreshore of Cleethorpes. They are a fresh alternative to anything that is on the scene right now, with their heavy back line, beautiful guitar riffs and a crisp sounding front man that has the best stage presence in the area by far. They really are a nice break from the norm. Their first single 'Tension' is a great
This year we have tried to mellow things out for the Sunday (with one or two exceptions). This performer is definitely in the mellow end of the musical spectrum. Find him in the barn on Sunday afternoon. Joe is the creator of coloured sound, combining his love of music and art to create a platform for himself and others to showcase their creative talents. After discovering the hand pan Joe now travels around the world playing music for yoga and meditation practices, teaching others how to be creators and spreading positive vibrations.
Jellyhead Originally formed in 1995 after a chance meeting in a Grimsby pub. They gained much acclaim supporting many touring acts of the time, eventually going there separate ways before the turn of the century. Roll on the time machine twenty years and a chance emergence of an old track on iPod shuffle, it became apparent that the songs of yesteryear where as relevant today as they where back then. Reformed and renewed, they are back to play their genre crossing tunes, from dark rock songs to soaring pop anthems, jingly jangly guitar skits to meaningful power ballads. At
Rock, Pop & Soul with a twist! Tenfoot Ukes bring a different flavour to our four stringed friend. Instead of the usual Formby, you’re more likely to find them playing arrangements of The Flaming Lips, MGMT, The Waterboys, Supergrass, The Stranglers, and many more. “Thankyou for helping make last night’s UkeOff so good. It was fantastic to have you there last night.” “Thought you were brilliant last night, hope to see you play again soon” “Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy it, audience and artists alike, hope we see you again in Goole sometime” “A fine body of people” – Mark
