Rufus Stoned
 
Rufus Stoned return after much acclaim
for their 2016 Debut performance

FOXXY and the Sinners
FOXXY & the sinners are a 4 piece spanning the Devon/Cornwall Border. A combination of musical influences allows the band to create their sound free from restrictions and leaves a distinct flavour of the 90s and an obvious nod to the grunge scene. Mix in the flowing, delicate guitar melodies and this laid back collective is something truly original. 
 




David & Chris Street
From the embers of The Treacle Eaters they now perform in a stripped back acoustic format, playing a diverse selection of songs they like.

We hope you like them too.
