Free parking, free entry and free live music! You can listen for free to the awesome local bands and musicians that will be here to entertain you during the afternoon from 12.00 pm to 7.00 pm.

Bitterroot

12.00 pm

From Ray Charles and Nina Simone via Bruce Springsteen and Ry Cooder to Elle King and London Grammar – you’ll hear lots of instantly recognisable songs, all with a completely original makeover. Hugely versatile. Faces will smile and feet will move.

Featuring a combination of soaring slide guitar and mandola, backed by thumping double bass and drums, the vocals then take it to another level with fabulous harmonies.

Rockabilly meets the bluesy sound of Bitterroot – a joy to watch and listen to. Peter and Broni expanded their duo to a four piece, adding drums and double bass, taking their sounds to a thumping bumping smiley place.

Bitterroot are kindly stepping in after our original booking “Get Loose” had to pull out due to unforeseen circumstances. We do, however, look forward to Get Loose entertaining us all next year.

Kiera Gabrielle

1.00 pm

 My name is Kiera Gabrielle and I’m an 18 year old singer-songwriter from Chinnor. I perform regularly with my Ukulele, Guitar and loops at events and festivals. 2018 was a busy year for me, as I was given the opportunity to perform at Thame Town Music Festival, Lunar Fest and the O2 Academy Oxford, to name a few. After my Singles release in February I’m excited to showcase new material and continue my journey into the music industry.
