THE CHILL STAGE. (FAMILY & DOG FRIENDLY STAGE)
Situated at the south end of the MAIN ARENA the CHILL STAGE is the Ideal venue to have a picnic or just relax & watch some of the best “Folk Rock” (and Rock Folk) you will find anywhere.
Here is the running programme for the CHILL ZONE STAGE at this years BUSFEST.
Hannigan is a 26 year old traveling singer-songwriter. Drawing from his English and Irish heritages, he has created a sound that can only be defined as his own. Settling into an acoustic soulful folk rock genre he writes honestly, inspired by the ever changing world around him.
Joseph Lofthouse has the ability to calm a room and draw an audience into his world. With technical prowess and evocative lyrics, Joseph weaves personal experiences and stories into life with the gift of a classic songsmith.
So wherever he travels, acoustic guitar in hand, his music is met with the same rapt attention.
Solo or with Full Band, Get set for a beautifully gutsy performance, as Tom tells his stories with undertones of blues, roots and folk, grown through a forest of soaring acoustic goodness.
A world tour and self drive expedition in his 1989 vw campervan all the way from the UK to Australia in 2016, lay the foundations and inspiration for much of his material.
It fits into mainstream molds, yet also satisfies a deeper creative taste.
We welcome Tim & the Druids (and JAY & SIDESHOW BOB) back to the CHILL ZONE STAGE at BUSFEST.
They will be sharing their brew, including material from their NEW Album.
