1945-2030 Ant Noel & The Peabody Drakes
Ant Noel lives in the city of Wells, Somerset. Having been born and raised on the small Channel Island of Jersey, Ant moved to Bristol in 2003, staying for a music degree and ten years of plying his trade as a musician (piano, fiddle, guitar, mandolin & harmonica) and teacher before relocating to the haven of Somerset. Ant spent the past decade releasing three original albums – Hurricane Rising (2010), Under City Lights (2012), The Water’s Line (2014) – and performing in venues across the South West in a variety of roles, some rather kitsch (e.g. ‘cocktail pianist’ for P&O ferries), others more suited to traditional tastes (e.g. session fiddle player, festival performer)
In 2011, Ant formed backing band The Peabody Drakes in order to flesh out the bare bones of his music. The band’s current line-up includes James Stallwood (clarinet), Anneka Johnson (percussion), Alex Pearson (double bass), and Paul Dix (fiddle). Ant Noel & The Peabody Drakes perform Ant’s original music which enlists a melting-pot of styles, anything from Classic Rock to Celtic, Klezmer, Americana or Cajun. Often described as lively and upbeat, these are songs of travel, ale and coffee drinking, french love stories and west country rambles!
In 2014, Ant released The Water’s Line to critical acclaim from the likes of BBC Introducing, Somer Valley FM and the Musicians Union who picked the cd as their ‘stand out’ release of the winter that year: “Ant Noel is proving a rising star on stages across the south west and beyond thanks to a winning way with a tune and an intriguing lyric. His third album is packed with melodic twists and he steps out from his folk roots to capture a wider audience with his endearing songs.” (The Musician Magazine)
2018 saw the release of Ant’s newest album Ferryman’s Wake, the first to truly capture a crossover between the worlds of folk and classic rock. With his most personal set of songs to date and a big sound full of epic arrangements, Ant hopes this album will thrill fans of both genres alike.

1745-1830 Mary Bateman
Mary Bateman is a traditional folk singer and guitarist based in Wells, Somerset. After having spent some time dabbling in the London open mic arena, soaking up the lengthy Morris traditions and varied folk songs on the Oxford folk scene, and picking up the dockmen's ballads and sea shanties of the Bristol folk circuit, Mary has returned to her home county of Somerset to find out more about the county's rich history of people's song, and to begin work on writing a new collection of songs about the legends of Somerset.
Stylistically, Mary's music is influenced by the highly-decorated Irish Sean-nós tradition, and Mary's sets often feature tradition folk music from Ireland and Scotland, as well as England and even some American folk songs. Major musical influences include Martin Carthy, Nic Jones, Jackie Oates, Anne Briggs, Niamh Parsons, Paddy and Brigid Tunney, Mary Dillon, Muireann Nic Ambhloaimh, and Karan Casey.

2045-2130 Some Villians
SOME VILLAINS is the brainchild of Edward Graves (guitar & vocals), originating in London and settling in the South West of England. In 2014 'Loose Generation' presented Graves' vision for a type of rock that contained elegance and poise over pastiche and blues cliches, utilising the 'wall of sound' approach made famous by Phil Spector and Brian Wilson.
Graves' move to within no more than a stones-throw of the Glastonbury Festival site in Somerset coincided with a flurry of activity and the formation of the band's current lineup; Graves, Stuart Donovan (drums), Luke Tozer (guitar) and Jake Beckett (bass).
The music has taken a harder edge. 2016's Lizard Teeth is an expression of 'DIY' ethos not uncommon among punk, rock and experimental precursors. It showcases the band at its most gritty and visceral, with a two-pronged guitar attack that has become a signature of the music. 'Heat Merchant' is a dystopian tale of a maniacal circus ringleader and, perhaps, an allegory for the modern world. Heredity recalls a QOTSA-like swagger while representing a significant breakthrough, receiving airplay on BBC 6 Music.
The second half of 2017 saw the band begin work on their second EP 'Outliers'. Teaming up with producer Joe Marsh, and released in March 2018, the work together has resulted in a cleaner, more focused sound crystallised best in 'Ghosts in the Field', a 'Strokesian' encounter with a colder, more grandiose edge. 'The Skin' is a change of gears, featuring blistering guitars, hard drums, and an exploration of lost love and rejection. 'Burn Me Down' is a jaunt to the dark side with the familiar dual-guitar attack accompanying a head-scratching time signature to induce a pleasing shuffle rhythm, while opening track 'Master Sun' is a trade-off sci-fi romp that encourages hip shaking.
Some Villains not only draw you in with ideas put down on tape, but also utitlise a relentless live show that grabs you by the scruff of the neck and drags you along for the ride. The band have impressed at headline slots at the Lexington, London, as well as numerous shows at the iconic Fleece in Bristol.
At the end of August they play their highest profile show yet, supporting Liam Gallagher at the 2018 Pilton Party after emerging victorious over 30 other bands, impressing the judging panel that included Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis and numerous members of the festival's organisers.
1930-2115 Stevie and the Masquerades
In 2015, Singer-Songwriter Stevie Nicole Brown brought four fresh acoustic songs to Producer & Musician Matt Bond, with the intention of recording and self producing an EP for Summer. Two years later, and the two young artists are taking the UK Indie festival circuit by storm as Stevie and the Masquerades and released a dazzling synthpop 4 Track EP in November 2017 at The Fleece, Bristol. The duo have crafted their own blend of 80's inspired synth drenched pop, washed with electric guitar, drums and piano and a fresh live show full of melancholy, charisma and energetic head boppers.
1815-1900 Oxygen Thief
It’s been just over four years since the release of Oxygen Thief’s second album, The Half-Life Of Facts, and the world has changed a lot in that time. In fact, a lot has changed since Barry Dolan started the project in Bristol back in 2006, and the 11 tracks of Confusion Species are the sound of him trying to make sense of it all, rather than be overwhelmed, lost and consumed by the sludge and noise of this modern, post-Brexit, post-Trump world.
Oxygen Thief began in 2006. He has supported Frank Turner, Mongol Horde, InMe, Johnny Foreigner, Chris T-T, and Tubelord and is a regular feature at Cheltenham's award-winning 2000 Trees Festival. He first appeared at the festival in 2008. He returned in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2014. He was featured in the BBC Introducing in Bristol preview of the 2010 festival. His 2011 appearance at the festival was praised for delivering intensity in a serene setting.
2009 saw the release of a three-way split album, entitled Exclamation at Asterisk Hash, which features fellow solo acoustic performers Ben Marwood and Jim Lockey. The album was released on Broken Tail Records. All three artists toured together in support of the release and played together at the Walk the Line Festival in 2009.
A debut full-length album entitled Destroy It Yourself was released on 9 May 2011, also on Broken Tail Records. The album was praised for its intensity, energy and songwriting. He has been interviewed on Tom Robinson's BBC 6 music show and on BBC Introducing in Bristol. He played the 2012 BBC Introducing stage at the T in the Park festival.
Having toured regularly with acts from their roster, Oxygen Thief signed to Xtra Mile Recordings, formed a 3 piece electric line-up, released two EPs and a second full-length album

1430-1515 John Ross
John Ross, singer, songwriter and guitarist who, since his appearance on the Strummerville Stage at the Glastonbury Festival 2016, has become well established on the Southwest music scene. He has been described as “ambient contemporary acoustic”, with “undertones of Floyd and Peter Gabriel” and “ touches of Celtic psychedelia” . Others say “sometimes his music is just right in your face”, maybe not surprising as John tells us he loves The Clash. Always heart-felt, with a unique guitar style, John Ross is worth catching when you can.
