Rock'n'Roll Night with The Firebirds & The Champions Duo ...#smaf2017
Fri 7 July 2017, 20:00 – 23:00 BST
Festival favourites The Firebirds open the music programme at The Edgar. Recognised as one of Europe’s top Rock’n’Roll bands, Jim, Dan and Jason are able to cover the complete spectrum of 1950s' and 1960s' music, from commercial Rock ‘n' Roll songs to Rockabilly, Harmonised Doo Wop, instrumentals, ballads, and their own compositions. Since they last played at the Festival (2009!) they have travelled the length and breadth of the UK and Europe, including an invitation to return to EuroDisney Paris, where they played at the official opening These foreign tours culminated in a very successful tour of South America, as well as two new albums 'Hi Fidelity' and 'The Early Years’. So come along to the Edgar Hall on Friday 7th - don’t forget your dancing shoes!
The Champions Duo - Simon and Kern Champion can be recognised as the faces of Rockabilly Showband 'The Beat Cats' who appeared at the Festival back in 2014. Since then the band have taken a hiatus but the duo continue to bring their playful and contemporary twist on rockabilly and rock n roll to the crowds of Somerset. Think of them as a modern day Johnny Cash and June Carter, their energy is infectious and the blend of male/female vocals and acoustic/electric guitar brings Rockabilly fully into the 20th Century. Expect hits from Eddie Cochran, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Elvis, Wanda Jackson, Janis Martin and the modern vibes of Imelda May.
Refreshments and nibbles will be available from a pay bar.
Food (Burgers, Sausages,Chips etc) will be available to purchase on the night.
