I am helping to promote a Country/Bluegrass fest in 2017

The Lion Acoustic Music Festival 2017

Bridge St , Belper, Derbyshire


A Weekend of great music from some of the U.K's  top instrumentalists, including Bluegrass, Country and Contemporary Music including workshops for Banjo (Richard Collins), Mandolin (Simon Mayor) and singing (Hilary James).


Headlining on Sat 1st April 

Slim Panatella and the Mellow Virginians

Simon Mayor, Richard Collins and Hilary James

An aural orgy of dazzling musicianship: The Independent

Smoking fretboards! This worldclass collective on mandolin, violin and bass will light up your evening   with an addictive blend of 30s, 40s and 50s jazz, swing, ragtime, country   blues and originals. The band features composer, wit, fiddler and guitarist   Simon Mayor, three time UK banjo champion Richard Collins, and sublime English   folk vocalist Hilary James, who is also a mean guitar and mandobass player: ENT2

Slicker than the Torey-Canyon, hotter than a peppered sprout and absolutely brill. The Living Tradition

  An absolutely magnificent set of largely American country / old time / blues that is so  melody-rich you would honestly think it was going out of fashion:Rock n Reel

Sat Support band Dandylions.......A three piece cover band from Derby, featuring a unique blend of country instruments and vocal harmonies. Currently creating a storm of enthusiasm and support with their modern and quirky arrangements of popular Country and Contemporary music.Thier music has been described as Modern Country/Bluegrass with oomph!!!!
