This band will simply raise the roof! Something amazing happens when Ireland’s Hothouse Flowers step onto the stage. There is a sense of musical adventure, an impulse to reach new heights and depths in music as the band and audience become one and the world becomes a different place for a while.. A rock n’ roll band, a traditional band, a soul band, a jam band with their own brand of jam on both sides of the bread! They have featured at numerous festivals including headlining the Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury.
We are delighted that charismatic singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Seth Lakeman will be returning to Pocklington after 2018’s whirlwind world tour with rock legend Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifters. During a short break from this tour Seth recorded his ninth solo album, The Well Worn Path, which has been met with rave reviews. It’s a return to a no-nonsense, organic, classic folk-rock approach with hints of Fairport Convention, Neil Young, Nick Cave and Billy Bragg – plus Lakeman’s trademark foot-stomping, fiddle bow-shredding and soaring vocals.
Widely recognised as one of the leading lights in the LGBT community, her songs have something to say. She has performed at many major festivals including Glastonbury and Isle of Wight. Her toe-tapping trademark sound is the rattle of rap dropped into sing-a-long folk-style numbers. Today Was A Good Day is Lucy’s fourth studio album and is scheduled to be released in April 2019.
The South are an impressive 9 piece band who feature former members of The Beautiful South including singer Alison Wheeler and lifelong sax player Gaz Birtles. They play the songs made famous by The Beautiful South ( A Little Time, Perfect 10, Rotterdam) plus a few South originals and bring back the full flavour and arrangements with this exciting live band. Come on! Let’s Carry On… Regardless!
The Grand Slambovians
Playing an utterly unique blend of rock and roll, folk, and quirky Americana, they have been called “the hillbilly Pink Floyd”, which is an apt description, particularly if you throw in elements of Waterboys, Neil Young, Dylan, and maybe a dash of Zappa. Their live shows are where the real magic comes down, earning them critical acclaim as well as a fiercely loyal following.
“Mightily impressive and hugely original rock from the cool end of Americana.”– Maverick
