About SUPERFLUOUS VELVET / NEWPORT GYPSY DJANGOS / GREAT AUNT

Featuring the rich creamy tones of singer Chris Phillips (Angelicats, Stereo Stories), Gerry Nelson's wild refined blues guitar with darkly pretty bass lines from Clive Bourne, they reduce all your favourite songs to Velvet.
NEWPORT GYPSY DJANGOS - The Newport Gypsy Djangos is a lively 5 piece swing band The group formed in 2007 when they discovered a shared love of Django Reinhart and his gypsy swing style. The line-up includes three guitars, clarinet, bass and vocals. Good entertainers who will add fun to the festival.
GREAT AUNT - There's a buzz about Great Aunt: theirs is a strange and joyous approach to making sometimes-sorrowful music. Raw and austere, simple and bold; full of stomping feet and clapping hands, harmonies and soulful lament. Listen, and you'll hear tales of joy and grief, whiskey and wine, gratitude and purpose-seeking.ing gossamer tapestries with timeless acoustic sounds, quicksilver vocal harmonies, and the kind of unassuming storytelling that burrows deep into the subconscious.
