Orkney eight-piece, The Chair, promise a raucously musical blend of folk, blues, reels, rock, dub, klezmer and plenty more. Formed at the Orkney Folk Festival in 2014, they have garnered a cult following for riotous live performances of their unique brand of “Orkney Stomp”: a fusion of fiddle, accordion, bass, guitar, banjo, mandolin with exhilarating drum-beats. Their acclaimed third album, Orkney Monster, digs deep into their island heritage while maintaining a joyfully upbeat vibe. Erik Laughton, Robbie Thomson, Andrew Gifford, Gavin Firth, Bob Gibbon, Kenny Ritch, Douglas Montgomery and Brian Cromarty complete this talented line-up. Can the venue contain them?

“A formidable and electrifying presence” (Songlines)

NoGood Boyo are five friends from all corners of Wales. With their backgrounds in traditional folk, EDM, pop and rock, they take their music and the party wherever they go. The band stand firm and passionately in their love for the old tunes and songs of Wales. Since forming in 2017, they have taken the scene by storm, raising the roof in festivals around the UK and Europe and grabbing awards such as ‘2019 Best International Celtic Band’ at the prestigious Festival a Interceltique de Lorient along with 2019 BBC Wales Folk Award nominations.
