WILLE & THE BANDITS
With their fresh approach to blues rock music, Wille and the Bandits have been assertively carving a place for themselves in Europe’s music scene, developing a reputation as one of the best live acts around and capturing the imagination and interest of music lovers right across the globe.
“One of the best Live acts in the country” Daily Telegraph
The band were listed in the top ten must see bands at Glastonbury 2014 by BBC Radio 1 and were personally invited to perform on the German TV show Rockpalast; a musical institution of global import. In 2016, Wille & The Bandits played a stunning show at St Boswells Live! since when we have been inundated with requests to bring them back.
SORRY, THIS SHOW HAS NOW SOLD OUT.

A brilliant double header, from SUNJAY and HUSH HUSH
Here, for a much sought-after return visit is SUNJAY, a blues / folk guitarist and singer of remarkable versatility and skill, with an eclectic mix of standards, covers and self-penned songs that shows a performer that is just getting better and better.
With a relaxed and confident manner, vocal style and mastery of his instrument he walks onto a stage and addresses the audience as though he is sitting down to play music with a group of close friends; a completely natural approach for a young man who picked up the guitar when he was just 4 years old and hasn’t put it down since.
Along with Sunjay are a heavily blues soaked group of some of the finest roots musicians in Scotland.

Heidi Talbot and John McCusker
Making a rare appearance as a duo, especially for St Boswells Live! Heidi Talbot and John McCusker are performers of prodigious talent, charm and musicality borne of decades immersed in traditional and contemporary music.
Heidi Talbot came to prominence as lead singer with the Irish-American super group Cherish the Ladies. She has since attracted wide critical acclaim for her album “In Love and Light”. Heidi was born in Ireland but now lives in Scotland, where she is married to John McCusker. With a background like that, it’s hardly surprising she should develop a style that switches easily between Celtic and Americana
Celebrated fiddler John McCusker formed his first band, Parcel O’Rogues at fifteen, and later joined top Scottish folk act the Battlefield Band. In celebration of his 25th Anniversary as a professional musician, John McCusker released “Hello, Goodbye” in early 2016. John has been a member of Mark Knopfler’s band since 2008, playing arenas around the world including a double bill with Bob Dylan at The Hollywood Bowl & 21 nights at The Royal Albert Hall.
