We’re very excited to announce that folk-rock-punk favourites The Leylines will be kicking off 2019’s amazing programme of live music at The Old Ship Inn, Dorchester, on Friday 8th February.
The Leylines were established in 2013, with a genre-defying, eclectic sound that ranges from traditional folk to full blown festival rock. Founded by a group of musicians in Weston-super-Mare (via Bristol), wishing to combine their individual musical styles into something that isn’t quite folk, sort of punk, but 100% heart-pounding revelry. This unique sound, combined with frontman Steve Mitchell’s lyrics centred around life on the road and the state of society, has launched the band into the heart of the live music community and made them firm favourites of the festival circuit.
Support comes from two excellent local acts, Stealing Whiskey and Kipper Roberts.
Advance tickets are £10 on sale now from
Or speak to Simon Guy / The Old Ship Inn to reserve a hard copy ticket.

Fuelled By Cider’s favourite one man alt-blues explosion Funke & The Two Tone Baby returns to Bristol on Saturday 2nd March at Exchange on Old Market, with support from Mike Dennis.
Funke and the Two Tone Baby is a one man sonic explosion. Uncategorized and uncharted. Jammed halfway between frenzied alt-blues and metronomic dance beats. Combining guitar and harmonica with beatboxing and effects that seamlessly collide the organic with the mechanical to create a fresh sound of unstoppable rhythm and unrelenting melody.
From supporting Skinny Lister, Beans on Toast, Hayseed Dixie and Mercury Prize nominees The Comet is Coming to a 40 date festival tour in 2017, including standout shows at Beautiful Days, Bearded Theory and Hungary’s Sziget Festival, Funke has quickly becoming a must-see act on the festival and touring circuit. 2018 saw yet more shows from Funke and his long awaited third album made it another busy year.
Support comes from Bristol’s super-talented son Mike Dennis. Mike is a classically-trained violinist whose boyhood love of Run DMC, Beastie Boys and Gangstarr led him to create a unique kind of string-heavy hip hop music he refers to as Violinica. Performing using Jess (violin), a loop pedal and a cajon, Mike builds up layers of dense harmony and embellishes with thoughtful, energetic rhymes drawing inspiration from daily British life and the perils and profits of love with a geeky fanaticism for rhythm-bending and syncopation. https://mikedennis.bandcamp.com/
You won’t have seen an artist like this before.
£9 advance (+b/f) from the Fuelled By Cider Ticket Shop or in person from Bristol Ticket Shop.
Ages 14+ (Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult)
Another great addition to the Dorchester live music calendar as acoustic-punk troubadour Gaz Brookfield swings into The Old Ship Inn on 29th March with support from B-Sydes.
Gaz is hugely popular on the UK music scene and a regular at Fuelled By Cider events such as Cursus Cider & Music Festival and Outcider Festival.
Often playing as many as 200 gigs a year, Gaz’s relentless tour schedule takes him to every corner of the country and beyond. Upon the release of his latest studio album “I Know My Place”, the subsequent tour sold out at nearly every venue, across the country.
A festival favourite, Gaz has played at over a hundred UK music festivals in the last few years, including Glastonbury, Beautiful Days, Bearded Theory, Boomtown and many more.
All of this has proudly been achieved without the aid of a manager, an agent, a record company or any press.
His latest studio album I Know My Place is out now, available on CD, limited edition 12″ Vinyl and digitally from Bandcamp. All of Gaz’s previous albums are available digitally on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon and many other digital outlets.
Main support comes from fellow acoustic punker and great friend of Gaz, B-Sydes

Bringing their dry and fruity blend of Scrumpy & Western music to venues, festivals and fairs, these scrumpy swillin’ reprobates appeal to young and old, and everyone from folkies to cider punks, beardy badgers to shifty blaggers.
Imprints are a Shanty-Folk-Rock cider fuelled explosion from Bristol. With songs covering everything from Space Pirates to Zelda’s political leanings, from the undead partying to waking up drunk and doing it all over again, Imprints will guarantee foot-stomping fun and the mightiest and fieriest of jigs.
Cut Throat Francis:
Cut Throat Francis are a four-piece band from Bristol, combining Folk, Swing and upbeat Eastern European flavours.
They are also known for the array of instruments they bring to their live show including The Banjo, Mandolin and Melodica as well as rich four-part harmonies and a thumping beat from the Cajon!
