A celebration of inventive and primitive musical instruments, with live performances from the most notable players in the UK and Europe. Headlining is Britain's answer to Seasick Steve, the powerful one man band Hollowbelly performing Thrash Punk Northern Blues. Support from France's Tinqui8, phenomenal young bluesman Bluesbeaten Redshaw and the festival organiser ChickenboneJohn This is a unique opportunity to experience this unique and thriving music phenomenon. Featuring instruments made from ‘found objects' such as cigar boxes and oilcans, a stick of wood and a few strings, the UK and Europe's foremost performers will play their own individual brand of music, from punk to experimental electronic, via blues, country, folk, jazz and all points between.
