The Drystones


Sunday 5 May – St George’s Bristol

The Drystones combine fiddle and guitar with technical mastery, a ‘brave experimental bent’ and an unexpectedly large live sound. They’ve been described as ‘indecently talented’ by Mike Harding, and earned themselves a 2018 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award nomination.

Since forming in 2011 to play at their local folk festival in Priddy, The Drystones have played festivals across the country, including Glastonbury and Sidmouth Folk Week. The duo have supported Seth Lakeman and Steeleye Span, produced two albums and, somehow, squeezed in their music degrees.

The Drystones headline Sunday Afternoon in the glorious St George’s Bristol.
