The Bootleg Swing Band from Django to Tango and from Latin to Blues. This five piece band play a lively style of music ranging from witty originals to Swing classics of the 1920's and 30's and Parisian Jazz of the 1940's.

Slippery Slopes are a local band from Herefordshire. They’re a four piece acoustic band combining an unusual mix of fiddle, guitar and accordion topped off with a steel drum to produce a charming, fun and foot stomping sound.
