2019 has been a hell of a year for the super-smoky-voiced, hard-working, far-touring chanteuse Elles Bailey.

Like its chart-topping predecessor, ‘Road I Call Home’ features co-writing contributions from high-calibre collaborators, including British hit-making legend and Ivor Novello Award winnerRoger Cook, storied Memphis and Nashville giant Bobby Wood, as well as Dan Auerbach(of Akron, Ohio powerhousesThe Black Keys) on the infectious‘Little Piece of Heaven’.

As a self-confessed ‘rolling stone’ -Elles genuinely does call ‘the road’ home. She’s continued her wide-ranging headline touring throughout the UK and Europe and was also special guest support for Grammy Award winner Mike Farris,Martin Harley, The Kris Barras Band and King King

Phil writes: “At the time of writing this (August 2019) I will have been busily engaged in finishing a large number of recordings to make up a definitive Box Set of songs and music encapsulating everything I do or have done in the last 40 years. There will be archive material as well as copious new recordings all in one package. The solo shows for 2020, which will be the last time I undertake such a large number of performances, will reflect this body of work. In addition, there will be a solo album entirely featuring instruments built by the late David Oddy. Very old songs, very new songs. So much to choose from after all this time. Look forward to seeing you.”

With a fiercely loyal and ever-growing fan base, The Leylines guarantee to have their audiences up on their feet – and they will be having as much fun as their audience while they’re doing it!

The band released their second studio album ‘Recover Reveal’, in March 2019. Starting work on it almost immediately after the release of their first ‘Along The Old Straight Track’.  Their second record was nearly three years of honing and crafting, with a number of tracks crowd-tested at numerous venues and festivals across the UK. The result is a collection of sincere, straight-from-the-heart performances, constructed with care, and played with passion.

The Leylines then took Recover Reveal across the country, before heading into festival season to play everyone’s foot stomping favourites from both their albums.

Born from the work of the duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin, Edgelarks combine exquisite folk with influences as diverse as the blues and Indian classical slide guitar, to create a sound that is “Subtle, atmospheric and bravely original” (The Guardian).

The BBC Folk Award winners take their strong roots sound, mixing original songwriting with stomping beatbox harmonica, soaring fiddle and vocal harmonies, running wilder with each repeat play. A busy collaborative period has included work as part of the Gigspanner Big Band (featuring members of Bellowhead and Steeleye Span); and performing at BBC Radio Two’s Festival In A Day to a Hyde Park crowd of 50,000 –supporting Kylie Minogue! Now they are back on theroad with their formidable live show, making much more noise than only two people should be able to, taking audiences on a story telling journey around a new musical landscape.

Two of the UK’s best known and loved singers - Billy Mitchell (Lindisfarne, Jack the Lad, Pitmen Poets) and Bob Fox (Warhorse Songman, Fox and Luckley, Pitmen Poets) are taking to the road together to tour their show 5 Star B&B throughout the UK. Their last tour as a duo was back in 2010 when their sold out performances earned glowing reviews.
Their individual busy schedules have prevented them from reuniting... until now and we are delighted to welcome them to the Beehive. And what a treat it will be. The duo’s ability to connect with the audience is immediately evident as they lead you through some of their favourite songs including original Lindisfarne classics and traditional folk arrangements of songs such as Sally Wheatley, Meet me on the Corner, Dance to your Daddy, Collier Laddie’s Wife, Big River, Galway Shawl and many more..

Best known for their work in Steeleye Span and Bellowhead respectively, Peter and John first came together as an experiment at the Folk East Festival in 2016 where they performed a special “one off” show. The reception was astonishing and Peter and John decided to make their arrangement more permanent and touring together has now become a regular part of their schedule. This will be Peter’s third visit to the Flavel following two very successful shows by his band, Gigspanner.

In a world of soundbites and distractions, Chris Wood is a truth seeker. His writing is permeated with love and wry intelligence, uplifting and challenging as he celebrates the sheer one-thing-after-anotherness of life. Tom Robinson and Chris Difford are fans while Stick In The Wheel and The Unthanks look to him as an influence.

Winner of six BBC Folk Awards, he’s played with The Royal Shakespeare Company and was a key member of The Imagined Village along with Billy Bragg and Martin Carthy. A wise and soulful craftsman, his concerts are a cliché-free zone.

“Chris Wood might be the Ken Loach of songwriting. Very political, but at the same time full of compassion, and he grows sharper and more acute with each passing album. He’s good, quite probably the very best we have today, and we need him more than ever.” – fRoots Magazine

World Unlimited - Never The Bride
St Mary's Parish Church, Kingskerswell TQ12 5LD
Doors 7.00pm - Start 7.30pm
Tickets £15.00+ advance from WeGotTickets Go to website for more information, telephone 01803 875527 or email
In the very heart of the notorious London rock and roll scene exists a whirlwind duo of female energy and ecstasy, please meet Never The Bride.

Their live performance is to be held in awe, purely in anticipation of the live operatic architecture they consistently unfurl upon their willing audiences. Having invaded venues ranging from The Royal Albert Hall (on multiple occasions), playing alongside Elton John at the Royal Albert Hall, Touring UK & Australia with The British Symphony Rock Symphony alongside, Roger Daltrey & Paul Rogers, Wembley Arena supporting The Who, Glastonbury Festival with Dame Shirley Bassey, Birmingham NEC duetting with Bryan Adams, Various with Eric Clapton, The Viper Room in LA and Euro-fests galore – to intimate spaces like The Green Note in Camden, Never The Bride have amazed and floored audiences and peer groups alike over their 25 years of service – these ladies are true rock and roll royalty.

Roger Daltrey broadcast “Nikki Lamborn has the best female rock voice since Janis Joplin and I know what I’m talking about, I knew Janis”.

The legendary Dame Shirley Bassey called the girls “inspirational”, and, on hearing Nikki sing their original song The Living Tree said, “I got goosebumps and the hairs on the back of my neck stood up”. Dame Shirley went on to record The Living Tree with the girls which then led to the Dame’s Chart Topping Album “Get the Party Started”, which the girls also produced.

Bob Harris from BBC Radio 2 referred to them as “one of the best live bands in Britain”; the ladies’ roll-call list is simply mind blowing – as are the stories the ladies readily share.

Their last album Long Live Live was recorded at The Stables Theatre, Milton Keynes, UK and introduced personally by BBC DJ Bob Harris, who said of the band, “I first start playing them on the radio Mid Nineties at GLR, (Greater London Radio). We became firm friends then and I was absolutely struck by their brilliant musicianship, their passion, their commitment, they really really mean it…They are one of the best live bands in Britain today.”

The remarkable rise of award winning trio The Trials of Cato on the UK folk-scene has been the subject of massive critical attention. Dubbed “The Sex Pistols of folk,” (J Davis) they pay clear homage to the tradition whilst twisting old bones into something febrile and modern, with stomping tunes and captivating stories, a combination that has taken them in three years from busking out of the back of their Transit van to a BBC Folk Award.

The highly popular line up comprises Gareth Turner, Steve Crickett, Emily Slade, Greg McDonald, Olivia Dunn and of course, Phil Beer and promises to deliver a lively cocktail of folk, rock, country and blues.

The Phil Beer Band evolved organically in the early to mid 90s at Maisemore in Gloucesteshire. It was a loose federation consisting of Phil Beer (Show of Hands), Nick Quarmby and Steve Crickett, all of whom lived close to each other, and melodeon player Gareth Turner from Northamptonshire. There was a need in the community for a band to play local events and ceilidhs and, following in the tradition set by the Albion Band (of which both Gareth and Phil were former members) the band always interspersed the dances with the odd song.

Basically, over a long period of time, it has evolved into a ‘Folk n Roll’ band with country rock overtones. It is the vehicle for Phil to return to the electric guitar and to have a good time with his mates. The band has seen many members and many tours but has been fairly inactive in the last five years. That’s about to change!

Doors 7.00pm - Start 7.30pm
Tickets £12.00+ advance from WeGotTickets Go to website for more information, telephone 01803 875527 or email
One of the most unique singer songwriters on the UK folk roots scene, performing original and traditional songs on piano and voice. Kirsty’s music is heavily anchored in the folk tradition, with jazz and classical influences. She weaves a spell over the audience as she tells stories via piano-based songs with sharply observed lyrics, and delivered in crystal clear, soaring vocals.

In 2020 Kirsty will be releasing her highly anticipated second album, “Our Bright Night”; tales of the supernatural, the dying of the light and of the land. The album is produced by BBC Folk Award winner Ben Walker and indie emo-pop producer and performer Alex Alex, and takes full advantage of Kirsty’s pure voice and deft piano skills. There are guest appearances from folk legends Phil Beer (Show of Hands) and Sam Kelly.

Kirsty launched her highly acclaimed debut album ‘She & I’ at London’s Union Chapel in 2017 whilst supporting Show of Hands on their extensive UK Cathedrals tour during which she performed to over 12,000 people. Since then, Kirsty has been performing solo up and down the UK, and sharing the stage with many well loved acts, including Richard Thompson, who she opened for at Sidmouth Folk Week in 2019. ‘She and I’ received extensive air play including the Mike Harding Folk Show, national airplay on the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show, the BBC 3 World Music show, as well as many regional BBC channels and international airplay, and won two blog awards for best debut album. It reached number 3 in the Amazon Folk charts and continues to receive great reviews from publications including The Guardian, The Sunday Express and many more.

SONG - Shammick Acoustic - The Carrivick Sisters
The Pack o’ Cards Inn - High Street, Combe Martin, North Devon , EX34 0ET
This is a welcome return from two very talented Devon ladies who specialise in bluegrass (or, as it’s Devon, maybe it’s greengrass) and old-timey American-style music. Twins Laura and Charlotte play guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro and clawhammer banjo – although not all at the same time! With traditional and original songs and tunes, and tight vocal harmonies, their virtuosity (and that word should never be used lightly) shines through, and there is no doubt that there is something very special about family members performing together. The Carrivick Sisters first started performing as a duo in 2006, turning professional when they left school the following year. Since then, individually and collectively they have won numerous awards, both here and in the USA, and played all over Britain, mainland Europe and North America, and released six albums to huge critical acclaim. Their music may be in an American style, but their songs are firmly rooted in good Devon soil. Come along and enjoy!

Tickets are £9.00 if bought in advance through WeGotTickets or, if you’re in Combe Martin, at The Pack o’ Cards or Pets’ Pantry, both in High Street, or for £10.00 at the door (with a £2.00 discount for members of Shammick Acoustic).  They may also be reserved by ringing Tom & Barbara Brown on 01271 882366.
