Due to illness of one of the members of the Swamp Dogs we now have a slight change of plan.

Chris Martin & Scott Wainwright will now be performing as our headline artists and what a pair they are!!  They say they are two men on a journey to a certain place, without a map, without a way back, but hope in their hearts and a smile on their faces.  We can expect to hear good time blues, hopeful gospels, wonderful folk songs and incredible stories, which are bound to make us laugh.

Supported by equally fabulous Deadwood & Wire (who are immensely talented musicians) entertaining us with a celebration of country songs, Americana and well know hits performed in their very own style

They are now a full band with added rhythm and horn section their unique blend of soul, R’n’B and boogie is an irrepressible delight
