The Artists

Andy Powell is one of the most charismatic entertainers you’re likely to see. The driving power behind StonyLive! for many years, Andy has been singing and playing guitar, banjo and harmonica both as a soloist and part of The Concrete Cowboys, and more recently, Palmerston both locally and nationally. He was the Bard of Stony Stratford for two years and still writes and performs as the Bard Emiratis. You can be sure he’ll get you singing, clapping and stomping to songs like Mustang Sally etc. Andy is sure to send you home with a song in your heart and a smile on your face!

Crossroots is an exciting 6-piece band that will get you on your feet with their eclectic repertoire of country-rock, up-tempo blues, rock classics and world music.

Milton Keynes Rock ‘n’ roll Choir is like no other choir you’ll ever see or hear. Reliving the cultural revolution that has shaped the popular music scene ever since, their lively singers do more than just sing and stand in a straight line looking nice. Feeling the passion and excitement that came with songs such as Da Doo Ron Ron and California Dreaming, this choir forgets all about typical choral decorum, costumes and standing still; they do anything but. Take a look at this performance of When Will I be Loved.

Phil Underwood is a maestro on the accordion when it comes to Zydeco, a music genre from French Creole speakers in Louisiana. It blends blues, rhythm and blues, and music indigenous to the Louisiana Creoles and the Native American people of Louisiana. It's up-tempo exciting music for dancing, listening or just stamping your feet. See Phil in action at
