The Bevvy Sisters + The Gherkins
Matinee! Doors at 2 pm
The Bevvy Sisters with support from Hull’s own marrow chomping loonies The Gherkins – musical interpretations, vocal harmonies, live Instrumentation.
Mixing equal measures of sweetness and sass, grit and glamour, heartbreak and hilarity, cut with a dash of potent Scottish spirit, The Bevvy Sisters’ radiantly triple-layered voices and artfully wide-ranging repertoire have won fervent acclaim and an ever-swelling fan-base across the UK roots scene. Their freshly re-blended line-up teams longtime vocalist Heather MacLeod and one-man band David Donnelly with celebrated jazz doyenne Gina Rae and banjo-wielding songstress Cera Impala. The Bevvys’ signature creative alchemy, spanning genres from country to jazz, gospel to original indie-pop, resounds with renewed vitality standing out from the crowd in both style and substance. More intoxicating than ever: pure vocal magic, distilled to the power of three.
Their new album, Plan B, is eleven hot tracks, original and traditional, all sealed with their signature blend and feel-good factor. Capturing the spirit of their live performance – The joy and wow of three voices singing out as one.

Then in the evening… Bombed Buildings presents
Goan Dogs + Tom Skelly and the Salty Beards + Oedipus The King
Doors at 6 pm.
Goan Dogs are a unique five piece enamored with, but distinct from, Bristol’s rich musical heritage. Drawing from a vast array of influences, the bands cinematic sound is laden with rich harmonies and tales of the macabre. Their atmospheric live shows are renowned to captivate audiences with pulsating rhythms and striking visuals.The group has picked up some glowing press from the likes of The Fly and Louder Than War, as well as airplay on BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio Bristol. They’ve secured support slots with Maps & Atlases, Kyla La Grange and Zun Zun Egui and played large UK festivals, including Green Man, Dot to Dot and Larmer Tree Festival.
Taking the growling, lurching, proto-grunge guitars of Neil Young’s ‘Alabama’ and combining them in exhilarating fashion with the slow builds and punchy dynamics of an early Idlewild, Tom Skelly and the Salty Beards create a dramatic and formidable sound. That’s not to mention the fact that Skelly has an exceptional voice that might just have out-trilled Edith Piaf in her prime.
Oedipus the King’ are an eclectic four piece alternative rock band based in Hull. Oedipus formed in late 2011 through a love of the obscure and making really, really loud noises. Their influences stem from a plethora of places; including the music of Explosions in the Sky and Modest Mouse, to mixed media such as; art and films, which they make use of during live shows with curious samples and visuals. Oedipus mix an array of cinematic and expansive sound-scapes, with a haunting and diverse alt rock sound.
