Comprising a classic combination of vocals and sax, lead and rhythm guitar, bass and drums, Red Dawg have been performing for years, simply because they love doing it – and they are very, very good at what they do. They are back at St Boswells Live! for a second time – the first time they nearly blew the roof off.

The Corn Potato String Band + Kevin Pearce
The Corn Potato String Band has earned high praise in traditional American music, keeping old time fiddle and banjo music from a one-way trip to the dustbins of history. Theirs is a story of struggle, hard knocks and triumph. Essentially unable to cope with modern life, the members of this band are outcasts of society who survive by playing the lost music of the flatlands where they were raised.
The Corn Potatos have delighted audiences with their driving fiddle tunes and harmonious singing across the US, Canada, Europe, Mexico, and India. They are all multi-instrumentalists dedicated to continuing the music and dance traditions of the Central and Southern US. In addition to being champion fiddlers they play banjo, guitar, bass and mandolin and deftly handle many different antiquated styles including ballads, “ho-downs,” country “rags” and southern gospel, specializing in twin fiddling and double banjo tunes.
Unlike most who would put voice to a music that ascends the skies all the while casting anxious glances back at the retreating piano keys, Kevin Pearce kisses the clouds and soars onwards before descending to alight on one chosen note so golden as to cause him to languish a while before leaving…

Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman
Two of the British folk scenes most accomplished performers, Kathryn and Sean have graced stages the world over in a number of guises, however, the intimacy and strength of passion shown as a duo, combined with an eclectic repertoire ensures a rare treat for any listener.
Twin daughters and a folk-rock whirlwind forced Kathryn Roberts (Vocals / Piano / Woodwind), and Sean Lakeman (Guitar), to sideline their popular duo performances in the mid noughties. After almost a decade, 2012 saw a spectacular return in conjunction with their critically acclaimed album ‘Hidden People’. Awards and much praise followed and the couple re-established themselves as one of the top British folk duos.
Support to be announced.
