Music

The live music at Bury Beer Festival is every bit as important as the breweries that are invited to take part. We’ve got a great line up of local acts and bands for you this year.

 

The Bands

Red Hippo

Red Hippo

Red Hippo is a stunning mix of sousaphone, Irish whistles, saxophones and strings, exploring a musical world influenced by traditional folk music with jazz influenced arrangements. Coming from previous incarnations in jazz, ska and folk bands these three excellent musicians create an exciting clash of sound that appeals across the board - their style means they are not restricted by genre and have appeared at folk, world and jazz festivals.

The Hayes Sisters

The Hayes Sisters

The Hayes Sisters are an acoustic trio from Greater Manchester with three guitars, three voices, a banjo, and are another example of close sibling harmonies! They mix original songs of their own with the well known, selected from the traditional music of England and Ireland plus the US west coast close harmonies of bands like Crosby, Still, Nash and Young. Their songs reflect personal experiences and emotions and those inspired by history, politics, art and literature.

The Jon Palmer Acoustic Band

The Jon Palmer Acoustic Band

The Jon Palmer Acoustic Band is a six piece folk, roots and rock-n-roll combo based in-and-around the musically vibrant West Yorkshire market town of Otley. Describing the band as ‘a cross between The Pogues and Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Session Band’, Leeds Music Scene agreed, saying the Jon Palmer Acoustic Band left them ‘spellbound and desperate for more!’

Lucy Wentworth

Lucy Wentworth

Acoustic singer songwriter Lucy Wentworth will perform a selection of tracks off her upcoming EP Tornado Strong.
