Bare Festival – Musical Highlights – 6th & 7th July
With Bare Festival starting today, we thought we’d have a look at some of the more interesting musical performers.
God is an Astronaut – It would be very hard to ignore them, despite their headline festival. Watching the sun set while listened to these guys could be epic!
“God Is An Astronaut are a 3 piece band who hail from Glen of the Downs, Ireland.”
Seamus Fogarty – Seamus has been slowly building a following and last year he released Short Ballad For A Long Man on Domino records. How cool is that exactly?
“You know when a song is good enough to let go,” muses Seamus Fogarty of his patient and meticulous approach to songcraft. Over time and tide it’s given rise to the London-based Irish alt-folk and electronica alchemist’s truly magnificent second album and Domino debut The Curious Hand”
The Lost Brothers – Again, very hard to ignore. Some great musicians and will be lovely in an outdoor setting.
“There is something special about two musicians in unison. Solo artists bear the brunt of pretty much everything – be it success or failure, joy or misery, it is all on their shoulders. Groups, meanwhile, are mostly perceived as ideal examples of democracy, when the reality is that they are governed by a benign dictator (if lucky) or a cruel despot (if not). Duos, on the other hand, are clearly in tune (and harmony) with themselves and each other.”
Natty Wailer – This should go down a treat on a festival stage and get everyone dancing!
“Nathaniel Ian Wynter (born September 30, 1954), also known as Natty Wailer, is a Jamaican-born musician and Rastafarian, best known for his work with Bob Marley and the Wailers, Aston Barrett and King Tubby. He is credited on recordings as Natty Wailer, Ian Winter, Ian Wynter, or Brother Ian.”
Mick Konstantin – Some light relief with Mick!
