Festival Performers

The Dolmen

The Dolmen are a relentless organic Celtic rock band born from the county of Dorset, England. Their mission has been to infiltrate the minds and souls of a growing audience with their tribal rhythms and powerful spiritual renditions.

The Dolmen was founded by prolific song writer & lead singer, Taloch Jameson and after a few changes over the years, the current line up has been solid since 2010 when drummer, Chris Harris, joined to complete the experience. Josh Elliott, lead guitarist, joined The Dolmen family in 2009 and Kayleigh Marchant, bass guitar & vocals, became a member in 2008. After breaking into Europe The Dolmen then found Anja Novotny, flutes & keyboard, in 2015.


Hornswaggle hail from Deepest Darkest Staffordshire.
This will be there 6th appearance at the Festival.
These troubadours of twisted tales bring you songs of love, lust and loss.
Wrapped up in their own folk style are stories of hangings, pirates, pagans and the demon drink.

The Pirates of St Piran

The Pirates of St. Piran have been together in various forms for more than 10 years now. They are a non-profit making charity fundraising group working primarily for the RNLI, Cornwall air ambulance and Children’s hospice Southwest. They have raised more than £65,000 for these and other charities.

They are based in deepest darkest Cornwall and perform at festivals and pirate events all over the west country, performing their own unique and exciting brand of rocky sea shanties, Cornish folk songs along with their own original songs of the sea.

They have released 6 popular albums so far and have on occasion reached the top 20 of the folk download charts.


This year promises to be a veritable treasure trove of excitement with a boat load of exciting skirmishes, fantastical yet historical re-enactors, and everything in between! Click to read more!
