Day line up section pages updated

For those of you that have being waiting to buy day tickets, we’ve just updated our line up section day pages.  There are a few artists that have not been allocated a day yet, but the majority have all now been updated.

Thursday will be headlined by Show of Hands along with Martyn Joseph and Track Dogs.  We’ve also just added the ultimate ABBA tribute act, 21st Century Abba.  With Thursday starting a little later than the other days, tickets are on sale for a bargain £60.

Friday will be headlined by The Saw Doctors.  Other artists include Mary Black, Frankie Gavin & De Dannan, and Eliza Carthy & The Restitution.  We’ve also added new profiles for Mary Coughlan and Fake Thackray.  Along with the comic genius of Jake’s songs, Fake Thackray will also include a poem or two from the late Les Barker, another comic genius who sadly passed a few months ago.  Friday day tickets are on sale for £75.

Saturday will be headlined by The Proclaimers with other acts including Fisherman’s Friends, Eric Bibb, and Kathryn Tickell.  We’ve also added new profiles for Barbara Dickson and The Deborah Bonham Band.  Whilst Barbara Dickson is known for musicals with songs such as her mega hit I Know Him So Well, her roots are in folk and acoustic music.

For Sunday we are yet to announce our headliner but they’ll be no disappointment as they’ll be performances from Toyah & Robert Fripp, The South, Jim Cregan ‘Cregan & Friends’, Skerryvore, and Peat & DieselBoth Saturday and Sunday day tickets are available for £85.
