Louis Smith

Louis joined the festival last year as our resident sound engineer, and when a few bands cancelled at the last minute due to illness he offered to step in…. and wow! So this year (of course!) we asked him back!


Billy Patrick

A soaring voice and a large guitar – the ultimate road trip across the American heartland, featuring glorious West Coast harmonies, Easter seaboard blues; Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountains, to the deep, deep Southern Swampers – an epic journey through Americana with a liberal helping of Irish charm and British steel!

American Rock, vintage Rock n’Roll, classic Blues Brothers, Commitments, Huey Lewis era blue-eyed soul, and a slice of that American Songbook Sinatra stuff to ensure that all bases are covered!



We are very pleased to welcome our MP to formally open this year’s Festival. As far as we are aware she won’t be singing – but we have lined up a special cider in her honour….!

Lady & the Tramp
Jess Hart (Broken Boat, Hartwood) and Tommy Waters (The Zipheads, Sinead and the Dawnbreakers) are Lady & the Tramp.
Picking their favourite Disney and Musical hits and resourcefully rearranging them between themselves and whichever instruments they can find to suit the job!
Cutesy and cheesy singalong fun for your inner child.

Kaspar ‘Berry’ Rapkin
Kaspar grew up in London and moved to Hertfordshire when he was 9. He learned the guitar when he was 11 when a family friend with a serious disability gave one to him on the condition that Kaspar would learn how to play it. At the age of 12 he discovered Pride and Joy on Guitar Hero and quickly realised this was the blues. This would send him on a path of education and revelation to the blues as a genre and a life style.Kaspar went to New Orleans to celebrate turning 18 where he performed in B.B. Kings Blues Club (and was discovered by Harold Marcho music producer). Harold invited Kaspar back to the states to record his first single Sailing.
