Stage times announced for The Quay West Cave and Acoustic Stages

For the first time there will be four stages at Wickham Festival this year.  We’ve just added stage times for our Quay West Cave, sponsored by Quay West Studios, and Acoustic Stages on our line up pageThere’s a huge variety of artists including Vincent Treacey who will be appearing on the Acoustic Stage on Saturday. He took a 10 year break from music and has only recently come back.

Another one to watch is Alice Milburn, a 16 year old from Southsea with a bluesy jazzy voice.  Last year she sang at the Albert Hall for an audience including David Cameron and The Queen.  She will be performing on the Acoustic Stage on Saturday.

Tom and Ash are back and their extraordinary duo of intricate, ‘obnoxiously talented’ classical guitar techniques has consistently impressed. They always deliver this up with the minimum of fuss in a bizarrely relaxed style whilst their guitar work is impeccable.  They will be appearing on the Acoustic Stage on Sunday.

We welcome Calvin Thomas to the Quay West Cave on Sunday.  He has a stunningly beautiful voice, and has been playing recently on tour in the West Country alongside festival favourite ‘Beans on Toast’.

He is one of three up and coming artists we have this year coming from Plymouth. The others are Jack Cookson and Alice Gullick.  Jack was nominated for this year’s Young Folk Awards and is touring Europe with Hattie Briggs.  Alice Gullick has worked with Calvin and Jack in the past on several tracks and also looks to be blossoming into a stunningly well-regarded voice on the youth folk scene. This embed is a collabortion of Calvin & Jack …

    St Nicholas Church at Wickham looking lovely in Wednesday's sunshine. As Revd. Jane who took the photo said: 'I never thought I'd be able to take a photo standing in the middle of the usually busy A32'. Lockdown has some benefits! ... See MoreSee Less

    Lovely video. Kinda appropriate right now. Great music brings people together, bridging what divides us and inspiring us through dark times. www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xjPODksI08 ... See MoreSee Less

    Two artists we've tried to book over the years, so far without success, are Joan Baez & John Prine. John is critically ill on a ventilator thanks to Covid-19. Here's Joan signing his song Hello In There. Get well soon John. ❤️

    Many years ago I gate crashed John Prine's 50th birthday party, I was hitch hiking down through the American south back in 1996... Got to Nashville, walked into a bar and there he was celebrating in the back room with a whole load of his musician friends, including Nanci Griffith if I remember rightly.. Good times... long ago... Get well soon buddy!

    Oh nooooo, John! Bad news, that. He cancelled his gig at Bridgewater Hall about a month ago. Would have loved to see him. Thanks for sharing this Janey, will have a listen now xxx
