Some of this year’s line-up of confirmed bands, acts and artists that you can expect to see will include Anthony Strong, Flowers and Edwards, Ginger Baker, the IDMC Gospel Choir, the Jazz Caveners, Tudo BEM, Rod Pooley, C.J. Tozer’s Ol’ Boots ‘n Blisters, the Mercurials & Fo Sho’s, Rabbit Foot, Herbie Flowers & Mark Edwards, the Turpin Hubbard Band & Dave Silk Jazz, Jack Blackman, Maureen Connett, the Jamie Murray Trio, the Phil Hudson Duo, and many more.
