Latest Festival Flyer update from Chagstock:


We keep on adding quality acts to the line up for Chagstock 2019! Becky Mills Joins us for the first time.

North Yorkshire solo singer-songwriter Becky Mills brings a uniquely personal and touching slant to the modern folk genre.

Listeners and audiences have characterised her touching, witty and evocative songs as being both “uplifting” and “heart-rending”, and after 20 years on the circuit (including gigs at Glastonbury, Trowbridge and Cambridge festivals) she is a firm favourite with audiences large and small.

A close collaborator with Fairport Convention founder Ashley Hutchings, Becky has also collaborated with Pentangle, Fairport Convention, Barbara Dickson and Ken Nicol, as well as being a former member of acclaimed all-girl ensemble Waking The Witch. In 2013 she released her acclaimed solo debut album, “Dandelion”.

In 2019 she releases her new album, “Tall Tales and Home Truths”. Rooted in the superstitions, folklores and mysteries of the North Yorkshire moors she calls home, the album mines her family’s past to bring astonishing real-life stories to the listener’s attention. Myths, community tales, bonds and travails, all rooted in a sense of place, where the moors suddenly meet the sea and the promise of a potentially different life…

And another! The Lagan will get you dancing! Beer-soaked London Irish folk punk: a rough blend of hard-hitting street punk and melodic dance-til-you-drop folk music.

lagan
\ LAG-uhn \ , noun;
1. Anything sunk in the sea, but attached to a buoy or the like so that it may be recovered.
2. A river in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
3. A rowdy, drunken celtic punk band based in London.

Forming in 2008 as a “[mal]function” band that would go and play drunken folk songs at parties in exchange for some booze, The Lagan became something of an urban myth: a potentially great band that was only held back by the fact that they didn’t rehearse, and didn’t have any songs, and didn’t play any shows.
