Breaking blues girl Grainne Duffy and hotly tipped Catherine McGrath bring their songs from the Emerald Isle. Amen Corner frontman and guitar hero Andy Fairweather Low will ably represent his Welsh countrymen, whilst a few Londoners will be popping up from the Sarf for a weekend in the country.

‘I’m so excited to return with such an amazing mix of brilliant artists’ says organiser Hugh Phillimore. ‘It’s rather extraordinary to be back quite so soon and able to work with such an international cast. It’s a real honour for a musical trainspotter like me!’
