8pm – 10pm THE TRIGGER HOUNDS – The Trigger Hounds are a rock ‘n roll infused four-piece cover band with a love of loud amps and crunching riffs! They play classic and contemporary rock music, blended in their own diabolic mixer of distortion, drum rolls and deviancy. Based in the East Cheshire town of Congleton (it was sleepy till they dropped the rock), they have been known to crank it up to 11.

Sunday 16th April
2pm – 4pm BAXTER – Peters & Lee, Nina & Fredrick, Gerald & Maureen (they weren’t so well known) and now – Baxter. Hayley is something of a local legend, with direct, powerhouse vocals, evenly matched with a dry wit and infectious guitar style. Paul looks a bit like Dave Grohl (no really) and brings strong vocal styles from soul, blues and jazz through to big rock anthems. Together, with a set of almost disturbingly quirky covers they entertain fantastically !!!!
6pm – 8pm AFTERGLOW – a rock & pop covers band comprising Hannah – Lead vocals, Martin – Lead guitar & backing vocals, Kostas – Bass & Neil – Drums & backing vocals. The band came about because they knew they all got along well and wanted to create a band that was a little bit different. A band where the song is king and no song is out of the running! We are pleased to welcome them to the festival.
