Sunday events & Green Fair

SUNDAY JUNE 19TH 12 noon –7pm
Expect the same magic mix ………..and more!
The Community Green Fair is building a good reputation as a creative, fun day out which brings together people from all walks of life together to find out about and support local sustainable initiatives of all kinds. Click the title link above to go to their web site.

There will be plenty of music at the fair:
The following performers will be appearing during the day in the Music Tent on the festival site:

Encyclopedia: "The music is sort of a... urgh... techno pop""An electronic power pop duo. They combine the new wave synth pop of the 80s with a modern indie rock approach to create a unique sonic experience!After the huge success of their debut show, Encyclopedia has gone on to play many local gigs and have built up a large, enthusiastic following. With their sights firmly set on finding a wider audience, they started recording their first CD in September with Jon Sweet (Colin Blunstone, Gordon Haskell) producing. The result was the five track EP 'Young Hearts' which presents the Encyclopedia trademark sound and their song writing potential.

Morgan Rattler: Mike Hall - vocals, guitar and mandolaSharon Martin - violin, viola and vocals Objectives: To strip folk music back to its emotional core. It has been over-intellectualised to the point where gigs have become like lectures. Not to stop people from thinking, but to let them feel as well. To not play every slide and note as it has been written down or how it ought to be played. To reserve the right to change, improvise and reinvent any piece of music, in the tradition of interpretation. To be proud to get tunes wrong. To reclaim this music which comes from and belongs to ordinary people. It is not the preserve of the star or the virtuoso and technically gifted. Anyone who plays, and feels it, should play it. To not set musical boundaries: from traditional to Sinatra, country to show tunes, soul to punk, it all falls into folk. To create a big sound playing acoustic instruments with no effects, just sweat, frets, bows, notes and passion. Finally, we aim to annoy cliques, snobs and purists, and with a drunken swagger and a clutch of wrong notes to force both fingers into their ears.

Our music is mostly learnt by ear, everyone contributes to the arrangements - we just love playing!
