BOOKED SO FAR FOR 2017...

26th July

The Drystones
(£8 / £9)

The Drystones started out when Dean Collier, Chairman of the Priddy Folk Festival needed to fill a slot at short notice at one of his venues in July 2011 and asked his son Ford if he could step up to the plate. One quick phone call to fiddler friend Alex Garden and the Drystones were formed.

Alex and Ford were friends from school. They both had a background in playing various instruments and in different styles. But they clearly found their stride in arranging lively jigs played on Guitar, Fiddle and Whistle.

Encouraged by the warm reception at Priddy, and the success of some lucrative busking through the summer the lads decided to enter the Mid Somerset Battle of the Bands. On Sunday 23rd of October they had got themselves into the finals. The odds surely stacked against them, as easily the youngest contestants and the only purely acoustic band they found themselves up against techno, grunge, rap and heavy metal bands. But somehow they seemed to span the wildly different audiences and won over the judges and audience alike to win the contest!

Five years on they have racked up a lot of stage time playing beer festivals, weddings, pubs, and charity events, as well as an impressive list of music festivals including Sidmouth Folk Week, the Bath International Music Festival, Warwick Folk Festival, Sunrise, Halsway Hothouse, Bromyard Folk Festival, The Village Pump Fest, and Purbeck. All whilst still doing their A Levels! Whilst playing on the Avalon Café Stage at Glastonbury Festival 2013 they were spotted by Steve Lamacq and announced as his "recommendation of the day" on Radio 2. In 2015 they released their second album and won a Larmer Tree Breakthrough Music Award, and appeared with Ray Davies and The Shires on Glastonbury Extravaganza.
