Music Mine Stage – The Feathers


Hugh Rolands is probably one of the most prolific live performers in the North Wales and Cheshire folk clubs. His songs are often a reflection on life and politics, with the occasional humorous one thrown in!


The raw holler of the blues is given an English inflection, as if RL Burnside has returned to us with the express intention of ripping up the shires! He will be performing raucous blues & Americana music with upbeat tunes sung & played on acoustic slide guitar & accompanied by a stomping foot.


Cry, who will perform later on our main stage, provide an acoustic set for us to revel over, much like BBC Radio Wales’ Adam Walton did over their recordings; “Somehow, they weave some strange alchemy with the guitar, the bass and the drums and it just sounds incredibly full, rich and clever.”


Elfin Bow represents the creative mind, music and art of Elizabeth Anne Jones. Her music has been described as a fairy tale experience; pastoral psych-folk with an undercurrent of electronic ambience. With imagery that blends her twin passions of music and art, her songs and stage presence exude colour, charisma and a gentle charm.


Voicebox is often described as the perfect place to practice new material or try something you think is ‘out there’. It’s an organic network of creative minds & good souls. Also known as spoken word, it brings a new genre to our festival. This year’s speakers will be Ben Wilson, Lianne Futia, Natasha Borton, and Pete Rogers.


Beytullah brings yet another new genre of performance to our festival, that of Kurdish-Turkish Alawi Music. He plays a traditional instrument known as a baglama saz. This not something you will hear every day, so make sure you pack the place full and give him a warm welcome!!

17:15 HOPE

Singer/songwriters of original acoustic music based in North Wales, Nathan Hughes and Steve Connor met 30 years ago by chance and have been playing guitar and writing original songs together ever since.

20:30 – 22:15 ESTHER TURNER

Having performed at The Boars Head earlier in the day, Esther Turner will be returning with a full set of live music at The Feathers for you to enjoy after the festival has ended. Be sure to head over there, grab your place and hear this young and talented performer sing covers and original material to end the night.
