Music Performers

The Music Performers taking part in the Festival are posted alphabetically as we receive information, photographs, videos and links. Click on the photograph of each to go to a sample of their music or to access their social media or website for more information.

Andy Taggart

Andy Taggart made his debut at Southampton University Folk Club back in 1969 and tells us "it's been downhill ever since". He warns that "if it's self-penned songs of teenage angst you're after then it would be better to spend the half hour he is playing in the beer tent. If, instead, it's derivative, retro renditions of blues, country, folk and pop you like then listen in!" He is one of the most frequent performers at the weekly Reform Inn Open Mic Night.
Andy will be playing the Middle Stage at 13.00 noon.

Johnny Button

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Johnny Button migrated to Devon from Essex thirty-five years ago and has been a regular performer at North Devon open-mikes for the past 10 years. His soulful singing and acoustic guitar playing has a Spanish influence which creates an individual sound. He plays a wide variety of soul, rhythm & blues and rock and roll covering artists such as Nina Simone, Neil Diamond, Mark Knopfler and the Rolling Stones along with his own songs including the Massey Ferguson 35 tractor song.
Johnny Button will be playing the Middle Stage at 15.30.

Molly and John Davies

John is a singer-songwriter with a snappy acoustic guitar style (hints of John Martyn). Daughter Molly (14) has a stylish voice and plays keyboard and percussion (plastic beaker on food box). Forget 'father and daughter - how sweet'; this is a really effective blend of voices, instruments and creativity. 
Molly and John will be playing the Bottom Stage at 12.15.

The Simon Darling Band

Simon Darling's set is a unique collective of original songs inspired by love, life, even little green men. A three-piece band supplies the combination of Simon Darling's gravelly vocals and rhythm guitar with Neil Rolfe's gutsy, toe-tapping bass lines, all infused by Toby Parker's naturally inspired energetic drums. ENJOY!

The Stolen Page

The Stolen Page is an alternative rock band blending vivid storytelling lyrics with hard hitting rhythms and a punk rock spirit, with tales from cities to small towns about love, loss and life as told through frontman Scott Xander Linn's gritty but hopeful voice. By mixing influences the band creates its own brand of rock n roll, laden with distorted guitar and songs rich with depth and meaning.
The Stolen Page will be the last act on the Bottom Stage at 15.00.
