Elliott Randall – Steely Dan’ premier guitarist – whose guitar solos on Steely Dan's "Reelin' In The Years" and "Fame" (the motion picture) have entered Rock history annals – will be making a special guest appearance in Ben Water’s set at Sherborne Castle on Saturday, 11th June.
Elliott has recorded and performed with artists as diverse as The Doobie Brothers, Carly Simon, Seatrain, The Blues Brothers, Carl Wilson, Peter Wolf, Peter Frampton, James Galway, Richie Havens, The Rochester Philharmonic and The American Symphony Orchestra, among many others.

He is currently recording a new CD in London, New York, and Ireland which blends together Celtic, Afro-Cuban and other global musical influences.

But Ben wasn’t content to invite one mate along to the party – he’s invited two!
Chris Jagger has been singing and playing from an early age, turned on by many of the same influences as Mick (and contributing to two Stones albums ‘Dirty work’ and ‘Steel Wheels’) but it was the release of the album 'Atcha' in 1994 that Chris established his musical identity and plotted a course that combines Chris's interest in Zydeco, Cajun and Country with the underlying strands of R'n'B, Rock and World music.

In 1996 Chris recorded an acoustic album with long term associates Ben Waters and Charlie Hart and recently Chris, Charlie Hart and Ben Waters appeared on BBC Radio 3’s Andy Kershaw Show and Radio 4's Ned Sherrin’s Loose Ends.
