Dana Immanuel & The Stolen Band (Main Stage)
Dana Immanuel and the Stolen Band are a banjo-whacking, guitar-shredding, fiddle-sawing, foot-stomping, whiskey-soaked, all-female assault on the senses.
Since 2014, this London-based ladyband have been delighting diverse crowds spanning the blues, rock, Americana, indie, folk and country scenes with their high-energy live show and utterly unique brand of musical badassery.
Following their huge success at our first Americana Day in 2021, we have invited them back to play on the main stage. Don't miss this high energy all female Americana band!
Porky's Hot Rockin' (Jeremiah Marques Stage)
Porky's Hot Rockin' was formed by brothers Dave and Johnny Coates in 1997. Band members changed over the years, much like their style! Originally playing rock 'n' roll 50's style but now include rockabilly blues, with other band members Tim Reid, Kevin Ellis and Toby Kerridge.
A fine blend of jump 'n' jive!
The Arlenes (Jeremiah Marques Stage)
The Arlenes are back and currently playing a selection of live UK shows and festivals throughout the Summer. The husband and wife duo rose to the UK's new country music scene in the late 1990's. In 2002 The Arlenes released a new album "Stuck on Love", which was widely hailed as the finest country album to emerge from the UK in many a year. The band followed this with a release of the album "Going to California".
On Sunday we are delighted to present the full band line up with 'solid gone' country rock!
Cobbler Bob String Band (Jeremiah Marques Stage)
The Cobbler Bob String Band bring their own dynamic take on Americana and Bluegrass, with the versatility to master everything from the traditional material of the likes of Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs to contemporary Bluegrass and country...plus the odd rock classic!
Fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar and double bass combine with soaring harmonies in a contemporary, high-energy sound that doesn’t compromise on virtuosity, entertainment or simple warm-hearted fun. All native East Anglians, the 5 members are also active touring and recording as part of acts including The Shackleton Trio, Redemption and Nobodaddy.
