The Sundown Sessions - line-up revealed

06 Mar 2014

Saturday night on the Black Howl stage at Galtres Parklands Festival will see the first ever  'Sundown Sessions'.

The will be "a veritable feast of magical roots-based variety", according to curator Daniel Lucas - front man of York band Boss Caine. The evening will be compered by the "brilliant" punk poet Henry Raby, and will also feature Martin Stephenson, Beans on Toast, The Buffalo Skinners, The Bluebuds, Skylark Song, The Broken Broadcast and of course Boss Caine themselves with some very special guests. More details and links here.

"As the sun goes down expect to be singing and dancing along, expect to be moved, expect the unexpected, and definitely, definitely, expect to go back to your tent smiling," said Dan. "This session is going to really take people back to the heyday of festival glories past."

"This is a terrific line-up for an exciting new session," explained festival director James Houston. "We love collaborations at Galtres, and this new one with Dan is sure to be a real gem. We've not yet revealed who will be playing the main stage on Saturday night, but this collection will be a fine alternative. We know the excellent Beans on Toast well, and Martin Stephenson is always superb, but the other acts bring a quality and diversity to the programme we are really looking forward to."
