Funke and the Two Tone Baby at The Vicar’s Picnic 2017

It’s a quiet weekend for Dan Turnbull (AKA Funke and the Two Tone Baby, master of the loop) – he’s only got three festivals to play in 24 hours. Luckily he gets a nice cold drink when he gets home after a 500 mile jaunt around the green fields of England…

For everyone that’s waiting for merch orders. I’m told they’ll be with me Tuesday. I’ll post them out Wednesday. Should be with you by the end of next week.
Thanks for all your patience. My tshirt guy has worked furiously in the busiest time of the year to get them all done for me. Big love to HogBitch.

AND all you Kent people. Get yourself down to The Flowerpot in Maidstone tonight for my first of two Christmas shows 🙂

HEADLINER: FUNKE AND THE TWO TONE BABY

Funke and the Two Tone Baby is a one man sonic explosion. Uncategorized and uncharted. Jammed halfway between frenzied alt-blues and metronomic dance beats. Combining guitar and harmonica with beatboxing and effects that seamlessly collide the organic with the mechanical to create a fresh sound of unstoppable rhythm and unrelenting melody.

Beyond the double microphones and trademark trilby is Dan Turnbull, a multi-instrumental battery spinning musical plates. A powerhouse to the ears and a blur to the eyes who smashes stage, festival and string after string whilst sweeping up audiences and dropping jaws from Boomtown Fair to Kendal Calling and Secret Garden Party to Convoi de Fete (NL).

Underpinning performances is ‘Balance’, released summer 2015 and heralded as ‘a masterpiece of an album’ by Louder Than War. Balance is a record that mixes musical mastery with an unhinged romp and a tour de force of powerful songwriting, heavy production and a ‘superb collection of musical vignettes’ (R2 Magazine). You’ll hear a full band before you see one man behind a wall of sound, so move your feet and dance off your face.

SUPPORT: JACK POUT

Jack Pout is a BBC Folk award nominated singer/songwriter from the fine city of Norwich, based in Brighton. Inspired by the revivalist musicians of the 60's and 70's, Jack's music carries nuances of numerous influences such as John Martyn, Duster Bennett, Bob Dylan and Chris Smither but with an individuality that makes his music inimitably his.
His honest and often deeply personal style of writing is married with a love for humour; live shows are known for their friendly and conversational style with audiences and feared for his love of puns.
2017 sees Jack playing shows across the U,K and Europe, playing and hosting stages at numerous festivals, and recording an album with a full band line up.

Edward II, are an English roots band that uniquely blend the rhythms of the Caribbean with traditional songs from the British Isles. Temporarily turning away from the rural songs of the middle England Morris teams, the band has been delving deep into a repertoire of songs born of the industrial revolution, specifically of their home town, Manchester. Still upbeat, and with rock-steady rhythms, blazing horns, fabulous harmonies and fiery melodeon melodies, the kings of the intercontinental roots reggae sound-clash return to delve into Manchester's musical history. Support from Funke & The Two Tone Baby. Tickets: £22.00... See MoreSee Less

Rumours are going round that there might not be a dance tent in 2018 if that is the case vicar’s Picnic should have been up front as many of us have bought tickets on the basis that there will be a dance tent next year!!!

Who is doing the dance tent?

Is there going to be a dance area or tent ? Wanted to know before I purchase.

Lucy Ann me, Diane and Jane have our tickets plus baby ticket 😀 Laurence Dawson are you and Jo going next year too?xx

Milly Jane d'Angibau are you interested in coming?
