Summer sounds in Trengwainton's orchard
On Friday 30 June you can dance the evening away to the sound of some of Cornwall’s finest live bands in the sheltered setting of Trengwainton’s walled orchard.
Flats and Sharps
Headlining will be Flats and Sharps; five young men who write and perform blistering bluegrass, folk, country and pop with a contagious energy and humour.
Having previously performed at the Country 2 Country Festival at the O2 in London and at the Proms in Hyde Park, they’ll be coming to us from performances at festivals in the Netherlands and Australia earlier this year.
Stone Roots are a four piece funk-pop band that’s been described as 'Adele meets the Red Hot Chili Peppers.' They’ve an infectious and energetic sound and since launching in April 2014, the band has gone on to support many successful artists including Willie and the Bandits and UB40.
Gwelhellin are a trio of characters who produce sounds from the blues, boogie-woogie and soulful vintage trumpet, with what they describe as 'cry in your beer vocals.’ Drawing on their world-wide experiences on the road and stage, amongst other things they’ll treat us to gypsy guitars, a seven-string banjo and even a balalaika.
Food and drink
As well as a feast for the ears you’ll be able to feast on great BBQ food from Roseworthy Farms along with some tasty vegetarian options. If all that singing and dancing causes you to build up a thirst then there’ll also be a licensed bar available.
Timings and tickets
The music will kick-off around 5.30pm and the bands will play until dusk, so bring a picnic rug or chair and settle down for around four hours of stonking good music.
At only £7 for tickets bought in advance, they’re selling fast, so be sure to book yours here.
Please come prepared for the vagaries of the Cornish weather as the event will only be cancelled in the event of extreme wet and windy conditions.
