Pilgrims' Way


Thursday 18th May 2017 8pm

Pilgrims' Way

Support: Smokey Joe

Tickets £10 from The Globe or www.wegottickets.com

Pilgrims' Way - Off the wall, colourful, energetic. With influences starting in early music, passing through Playford and the Morris traditions, picking up prog, soul, and pop, it's impossible to categorise the sound they make as folk music is fed through their unique steam driven sound-mincing engine.

Formed by default under a Stockport pub table in early 2010 by Ed, Tom, and past member, Lucy Wright, Pilgrims' Way has grown to incorporate a dazzling array of instrumentation and millinery. With the extraordinarily omni-skilled musician Jon Loomes (22 instruments played on Red Diesel!), and champion Renaissance woodwind parper and oboe wrangler Jude Rees joining along the way, the prospect of an early night is slim.

Merry Hell



Thursday 7th December 2017 8pm

Merry Hell

Support: TBC

Tickets £12

Festival favourites Merry Hell are a joyous folk-rock explosion of melody, commitment, energy and above all, songs that will stay with you long after listening. Founded in their native North West of England, Merry Hell is an eight-piece folk-rock band. The band was forged in the smouldering embers of 90's Folk/punk band, The Tansads. While Merry Hell retains a nucleus of five former Tansads members, brothers John, Bob and Andrew Kettle (guitar, mandolin and vocals respectively), along with keyboard player, Lee Goulding and drummer Andy Jones, the addition of vocalist, Virginia Kettle (wife of John), has helped create a new identity, purpose and spirit, in their music. Her prolific, ingenious and insightful song writing is one of the focal points of Merry Hell's recordings and live performances – her presence has perfectly complemented a group which has taken particular pride in penning original material. 2015 sees the release of their third album, The Ghost In Our House and other stories..., with national tours lined up for Spring and Autumn, the return of Merry Hell Acoustic and a summer filled with festivals.
