More acts announced

The next Five acts including the Comedy to be added to the JF18 line up are!!

Joining the Friday night Big Top bill along side already announcement headliners RUSTY SHACKLE will be BLACK WATER COUNTY and THE LEGGOMEN.

BLACK WATER COUNTY

Smashing their way into the UK folk punk scene since 2013, Black Water County bring an energetic live show of stout quaffing, banjo breaking and tin whistle mangling original music, along with trads and shanties that have been given a good kick up the arse and a slap around the face. Their energetic live shows, which feature the dual lead vocals of Tim and Shan, are a thing of local legend and awe in their home county of Dorset, usually ending up with band members scattered throughout a frenzied crowd or a shoulder-mounted fiddle solo, to name but a couple of eventualities.

The band have recently released their debut album, TAKING CHANCES (released February 2017), the first taste of which came in the shape of the preceding singles, ‘One More Beer Won’t Hurt’ (released May 2016) and ‘Start Something New’ (released January 2017) and has since been followed by The Painful Truth (released June 2017).

High octane performance style and strong influences from Flogging Molly, The Rumjacks, The Dreadnoughts, The Pogues and the Levellers what is there to not like about Blackwater County?’ – gigsandbands.com
‘A strong dual vocal, multi-instrumentation and an almost swashbuckling attitude to stage presence.’ – rock-regeneration.co.uk

THE LEGGOMEN have grown along side Jurassic fields supporting the festival from the start and performing for their 5th year in a row. The Leggomen will be opening the Friday night Big Top so get to the festival early as these guys are not to be missed.

Billy, Ollie,Josh and Matthew have played many a sell out gig in the south west. With their Gritty Orlando Blues feel, mixed with Rock, Country and Indie it’s a no wonder they have performed in front of Michael Eavis (he was a large fan of the beards!), supported the likes of the Fun Lovin’ Criminals and performed a headlining set at the O2 Academy in Islington

Here’s a clip of their performance supporting Fun Lovin Criminals at JF17.

Having headlined plenty of festivals all over the south of England, a month touring the Alps and most recently being sponsored by Old J Spiced Rum The Leggomen just keep growing from strength to strength, once being described as “Beards, Harmonies and LOUD NOISES”.

SATURDAY COMEDY!

LOCAL COMEDIAN TOM GLOVER WILL BE PLAYING HOST TO THE COMEDY. ALL THE LAUGHS AND GAGS THIS YEAR WILL IN THE TINY TOP ON THE SATURDAY AFTERNOON.

TOM GLOVER has been on the UK comedy circuit since 2010 Tom has avoided the bright lights of TV panel shows in favour of the best and worst (in fact, any) clubs, tents, pubs, theatres and fields that Britain has to offer.

Following in the footsteps of the westcountry’s finest comedy talent, Tom has been growing in the dark depths of the south west where he is a regular MC and headliner for those rooms no-one else can afford to drive to.

Gigging to everyone from students to the ladies of the WI this plucky 27-year-old has developed a knack of winning over any crowd with his tales of life on the outside and his observations on the minutiae of the everyday. And if that’s not your thing he also does funny accents and pulls silly faces.

In all honesty he is “going to be a comedy monster”(Matt Price, Comic) and “deserves to go a long way”(Steve Hall, We Are Klang) for his “wickedly funny, beautifully timed observations”(View From Newspapers)

MIKE COX

Mike Cox has been performing comedy for five years and has quickly made his mark on the comedy circuit with his his sharp wit and everyday cynicism which have seen him crowned winner of the Fosters South Coast Comedian of the Year, while he reached the final of Amused Moose Laugh Off 2016 both the semi-finals of So You Think You’re Funny in 2012 and The Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year in 2013. Mike’s accessible style and ease with both mainstream and alternative audiences currently make him one of the most enjoyable young comics to watch.

“Like an Everyman, if that Everyman had delicious cynicism and razor sharp wit” – Romesh Ranganathan.

“If Rob Beckett is the new Micky Flanagan then Cox could be the new Rob Beckett” – Bruce Dessau

“Mike Cox has the sharpness of any highbrow comic, but with the wealth of material to appeal to the ‘Everyman’ with ease. A refreshing and hilarious act to watch and work with” – Dane Baptiste

TWO VERY GOOD LOCAL ACTS TO JOIN THE SATURDAY BIG TOP LINE UP ARE..

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

Behind Closed Doors, (consisting of one Cajon player/vocalist – Si Dew and one guitarist/vocalist – Nick Randall) formed in 2014 and have been entertaining the locals of Bridport ever since.

They perform up-tempo acoustic covers with a slight heavy metal undertone with, at times, a comical edge.

Have a look them performing at the recent St Patrick’s Day party we hosted in March.

No Country for Old Men,  Nashville Honky Tonk Bar Music

A honky-tonk is a bar that provides country music for the entertainment of its patrons. The term also refers to styles of music played in such establishments.

I ventured in to the Honky Tonk bars on Broadway Nashville Tennessee in 2006 to hear foot tapping rocking Country Music. I spent two weeks there listening to some of the best Country artists in America playing the finest music.

In 2007 I woke up in an intensive care ward. I had been in a coma for 10 days. I had fallen off my bicycle and landed head first on the road and sustaining serious head injuries and brain damage. It was six months of recovery to come.

Headway advised me to take up a simple hobby so I picked up my guitar, I hadn’t played since 1976, I was in a local band called Rusty Blade then, so believe me I was a bit rusty! I remembered the music I had heard in Nashville so I got together with an old mate, Chip Woodward, to start a duo playing some of those great songs as I slowly recovered

I moved to Bridport in 2010 and got Ian Taylor and Ryan Halsey on board to form No Country for Old Men and we spent the next five years practicing and playing in local pubs.
Our ten minute demo CD contains a few snippets from a wide range of material.
