It’s not just the stages keeping you entertained in The Hidden Valley. When you need a break from the festival hive our chill-out healing area down by the pond can provide a proper pampering or visit our garden and get yourself some remedy and soul-soothing. When the bouncing and partying has tired your legs clap along with our folk jam artists or indulge in a spot of retail therapy…
2018 line up included…YELENI HEALING AREA
Talented musicians who love to strum, sing, blow and pluck unplugged and informally, join us! There will be a safe place to put your instruments down and the opportunity to sing your favourites and play your heart out. It’s at the bottom of the craft area by the pond. See you there. Confirmed acts include:
SLIPPERY SLOPE: Slippery Slope are a four piece acoustic band combining an unusual mix of instruments and musical styles to produce a charming, fun and foot stomping sound. Playing traditional and contemporary musical styles from classic French accordion to stomping Klezmer, with occasional dips into ska and Irish folk along the way. The line up is accordion, fiddle, guitar and Trinidadian steel pan. Slippery Slope supply the perfect mix of silly, melancholy and beautiful music.
MICE IN A MATCHBOX: Mice In A Matchbox are about as local as it gets – the duo, featuring Sally Stamford and Jim Rolt are based in Bromyard, Herefordshire. Together they form an exciting and interesting acoustic blend of styles with the lyrical and evocative vocals of Sally merging with Jim’s punchy guitar work and harmonies. They will definitely get your toes tapping and your fingers snapping!
