Floor Singers booked to perform on the night …
Pete performs regularly, and with acclaim, at numerous folk clubs in the Midlands. Songs from the 60s and 70s are his forte, but he wanders into other areas, too, with great success.
Dave is definitely Bedworth’s candidate for ‘The oldest Singer in Town’. A former miner (as well as other trades) Dave is a traditional guy with a repertoire of traditional songs many of which tell the story of miners and their families. He has also written a few songs about his own time down the local pit and has now introduced several monologues into his repertoire which invariably get audiences laughing.
Frontman of Greenman Rising, and main organiser of the Ragged Bear Festival, Steve is a vocalist and bodhran player respected for his ability to put across an old tune with a new slant.
Andrew, amongst other things, plays melodeon and whistle in a way that stops you in your tracks and insists you listen. A member of Greenman Rising, his sound can be heard all over the country, and is always in demand.
Tangent is a four-piece “folksy” band made up of two separate duos that happened to meet while attending a casual musical evening in Donisthorpe. Father and daughter, Graham Kettle and Sarah Howells, regularly entertained with their harmonious renditions of folk songs old and new while instrumentalists Dominic Parkhouse and Martin O’Connor always impressed with their unique interpretations of a wide range of melodies. A suggestion that the two duos should perform together soon became a reality with Tangent officially born in the later part of 2016.
