Our bar is stocked with an array of West Country ciders plus real ale, lager, wine and spirits, and locally-sourced food will be served by Made in Dorset. Truly it’s a small local festival with a wider perspective!

A real coup for Taunton as Les Carter (Carter USM / Ferocious Dog) heads up a night of amazing solo talent with Nick Parker, Jake Martin and B-Sydes at the CICCIC venue on Paul St.
Les Carter (Carter USM and Ferocious Dog)
Les is best known for his work in “Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine” in the early 90s, and these days for providing guitar for folk-punk kings “Ferocious Dog” as well as his long standing band “Abdoujaparov”. When Les is not on the road with said Dogs, he is on stage solo and acoustic! It´s a rare thing to see such a seasoned performer in such a small venue, performing such a stripped back set. Grab a ticket, get yourself a drink and get down the front! We will see you there!
Come and see this man now, because we predict that in the not so distant future we may have to watch Nick from the back of the room; unable to wade through thousands of adoring fans! Nick is a firm favourite in the UK festival scene and is constantly on the road, entertaining audiences across the UK and mainland Europe. Like a fine cider he is well known and well loved in the West Country.
Jake has spent the last 2 years touing his brand of angry folk punk practically non stop accross the UK, mainland Europe, America and Australia. Now he is back for another run with a brand new EP and a big bag of new songs! Those of you who caught his support slot with Gaz Brookfield in Taunton last year will know how good this lad is.
Ben has had a great year, with stand out performances including Gaz Brookfield support at Bristol´s sold out Bierkeller, a slot at Farmer Phil´s Festival, and playing for Sheer Music in Devizes. Ben´s songs are as unique as they are well crafted. Make sure to come early and check him out!

Black Water County – Smashing their way into the UK folk punk scene since 2013, BWC bring an energetic live show of stout quaffing, banjo breaking and tin whistle mangling original music, along with trads and shanties that have been given a good kick up the arse and a slap around the face. With two EP releases under their belt: Welcome To The Black Water County (2013) and The Fellowship Of The Craic (2014).
Imprints – A folk, shanty, gypsy, rock band based in Bristol. Described as a knees-up explosion with an unforgettable energy on stage they deliver their unique high-octane spin on the folk-rock genre and ensure every performance is a memorable foot-stomping occasion!
