South X South Street - Annual Beer & Music Festival - 29/30th April 2017
Mayday Bank Holiday weekend and we've got a fantastic couple of days full of live music, BBQ food and over 15 guest ales and ciders for you to sample. Hopefully, the sun will be shining too!
On Saturday playing live are Bob Collum (kinda alt-country, rock & roll and a smidgen of folk with a potent dose of guilt, a dollop of sin and a drop of salvation at 3pm) and East Lonesome Drifters (“We got both kinds of music here... we got country AND western.” a five-piece outfit that pays homage to traditional honky tonk, western swing, Bakersfield and bluegrass - 6.30pm
On Sunday The Rambling Allstar Review (Philip Rambow, Martin Belmont and Cheyne Pride Phil Rambow and Martin Belmont first crossed paths in the time remembered as Pub Rock in 1973/4. Martin was in Ducks Deluxe and Phil was the singer/songwriter with The Winkies. Martin met Cheyne Pride around 2008 while a member of Hank Wangford’s Lost Cowboys (which he still is), and has worked with her on and off since then as a duo or part of a full band. Cheyne is American by birth but a long time resident of the UK. She sings Country with a voice as clear as a mountain stream and rhythm and blues as dirty as Muddy Waters! - 3pm) and The Weathertop Preachers (Chesham's WTPs, an up-tempo acoustic duo performing classic rock, country rock and alternative rock cover tunes - 6pm)
Could be some other live music before 3pm too..
On the beer front we have local guest ales from XT, Tring, Vale and Chiltern and then some interesting stuff from further afield - Pheasantry, Wild Weather, Mad Dog, Tiny Rebel, Grey Trees, Blue Monkey, Elland and Ilkley.
Ciders from Scrumpy Wasp, Worley, Purbeck and Millwhites.
BBQ grub available until it's sold out.
