Late Night Sessions – 12th & 13th July In association with STRADA music agency.
10pm -11pm: Pete and Polly Bolton
Pete and Polly play fast, funky, early Americana. Good time country and blues, gospel and mountain songs are all driven by a mix of banjo, guitar and mandolin. Passionate vocals and inspired playing from them both make this father and daughter duo unusual and a bit special.
