Thornhill Music Festival 2013
Posted on : 6th December 2012
Thornhill, Dumfriesshire  May 3rd – 5th
There has been LOT’s of speculation about whether or not this is the Thornhill Blues Festival re-incarnated and we would have to say, well – kinda/sorta!

After much negotiation with other artists, locals and venue landlords we came to the decision to make this one a multi-genre event. It’s being run all of us at Lewis Hamilton Music, and with the full co-operation of  the pubs involved, which were VERY busy last time around. It has to be said though, we probably wouldn’t have even thought about going for this project if the old one wasn’t so sorely missed.

The Friday evening looks like being distinctly traditional Scottish music, and we have some AMAZING performers signed up already. The sat/sun events will be more Rock, Bluegrass, Bluesy, World, and again we have some very high-calibre acts for you. If the music-loving public’s minds are open, and we believe they are, they’ll be rewarded by a very memorable cross-cultural weekend. If it’s a success it will be an annual event that will hopefully grow.
So far we have booked –
Dave Arcari
The Yahs
Roy Marchbank
Tony Brook
The Ballachulish Hellhounds
The Jensen Interceptors
Box ‘o Bananas
Baby Isaac
Scarecrow Tribe
The Fighting 69th
Red Pine Timber Company
Lewis Hamilton
Urang Matang
Wang Dang Delta
Bad Reputaion
GT Boos Band
Huggy Bear
A full list of acts will be published soon. All the landlords involved are being very co-operative in offering up direct payment to the bands, and all entry will be free. All we/they ask is that you bring friends and family, buy soup and supper, and a few tasty pints. Nick & Lewis 🙂
