SUNNYSIDE This multi award winning band from the Czech Republic was founded in 1997 and specialises in the authentic interpretation of traditional bluegrass from the 40s and 50s. SunnySide has performed at music festivals, in music halls and clubs in the Czech Republic and throughout Europe and has won the coverted audience appreciation award at EWOB many times over the last decade.
TILTER WHEEL A relatively new band from the north of England whose members have a long history of playing Bluegrass music. Simon Brady learnt to play mandolin at the age of 8 and played with the family band. In the mid 80’s he was three times winner of the Edale Bluegrass festival mandolin championships. In 2010 Simon won the British Music Association ‘Musician of the Year’ trophy. Jonny Hulme undoubtedly one of the best bluegrass banjo players in the UK and well known for his inimitable banjo style. They are ably assisted by Roo Walker on guitar and Ray Walmsleyon Double bass - two of the very best.
RIP ROARING SUCCESS A really ‘Hot Trio’ with Russell Williams (Baker’s Fabulous Boys) with his sister Lucy and Jay Bradbury (both ‘Jaywakers’) who, in addition to their clear raw talent and skill have a repertoire to satisfy any music fan. The Rip Roaring Success stylishly blend bluegrass standards, jumping hot jazz from the 20's, 30's and 40's with country fiddle to deliver a performance of lively energetic string music with charm and charisma.
BIGGINHILLBILLIES A Kent based 5 piece band. Whilst their mainstream is bluegrass music, their varied repertoire includes country and folk numbers, 50’s and 60’s pop, Irish favourites and jazz standards.
They’ve come a long way from busking in Penzance to perfoming at The O2 in London and at Proms in Hyde Park (which was recorded and played on the Bob Harris Country Show on BBC Radio 2). They have played at many festivals including The Isle of Wight, Maverick, Bluegrass & folk festivals and headlined at Ireland’s Westport Bluegrass & Folk Festival. We welcome the boys back to Coastline.
