More acts added

Singer-songwriter Grace Petrie and Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer

We're very pleased to announce an additional selection of artists for Towersey 2016.

After her massive success at the 2015 festival, Grace Petrie returns to Towersey, but this time with  a few friends, including singer-songwriter (and sometime Daniel Kitson cohort) Gavin Osborn, and the prolific MJ Hibbett.

Making his Towersey debut and guaranteed to raise a smile is banjolele maverick and purveyor perfectly pronounced (and hilarious) 'chap-hop' ditties, Mr. B The Gentleman Rhymer. Jolly good show!

Also, look out for young Orkney five-piece Fara; award-winning Scottish 'neo-trad' quintet The Elephant Sessions; and FleetwoodCave, aka Marion Fleetwood and Gregg Cave from TradArrr.

Plus Europe's leading western swing act The Swing Commanders, rising East Mids singer-songwriter Josh Wheatley, and guitar duo Batkin-Hill.

These artists will be joining the previously announced line-up, which includes Billy Bragg, Kate Rusby, The Wonder Stuff, Midge Ure and the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, and much more.
