Nine Below Zero
One of the most popular British Rhythm and Blues acts returns to headline Thursday Night Blues on the Lake Stage. "Superbly executed, highly infectious"
Martin Harley Band
One of the UK's most celebrated blues musicians playing Thursday Night Blues with his band. “No doubt that he is a slide guitar master. He is the business” – Roots Magazine
From USA, journeyman singer, songwriter and ex-rancher known for chronicling the life of blue-collar America, and “should be on any list of great songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Hank Williams”
Steeped in the lineage of British folk, one of the UK's finest guitarists and songwriters, his honey-on-gravel vocals have brought crowds the world over to pin-drop silence and rapturous applause. Playing as Trio and Solo.
Roscommon-based band Gatehouse are unashamedly trad and proud to present the music that has been the very heartbeat of their home turf – Connacht province of western Ireland – for generations
Intriguing alt-country duo from London who've been challenging categorisation for years, with an idiosyncratic songwriting style, very much informed by Americana, but with a heart and soul firmly rooted in the UK
