Melosa


"The most enjoyed headliners Budstock has seen in 20 years of rocking the Southwest. Melosa blew away the capacity Budstock festival crowd with fresh upbeat sounds which had em up and dancing like loons from start to finish. Superb entertainment"

This musical army has conquered festival crowds all over the UK fusing big fat doses of Ska and Funk with lashings of Swing, Blues and Hiphop. Throw in some infectious grooves from all over the world and you've got a massive bouncy soundthat you just can't help but dance to.
2015 is the tenth anniversary of the first Melosa gig (they played as an acoustic four piece to a packed room upstairs in the Globe pub, Exeter) so it's going to be a year of celebration with loads of gigs all over the place, a new album (new songs are being written & plans are being made as we speak!) and loads of other tenth birthday stuff!

Film & Food Night : *Ginger & Rosa*

London, 1962. Two teenage girls – Ginger and Rosa - are inseparable; they play truant together, discuss religion, politics and hairstyles, and dream of lives bigger than their mothers’ frustrated domesticity.

But, as the Cold War meets the sexual revolution, and the threat of nuclear holocaust escalates, the lifelong friendship of the two girls is shattered - by the clash of desire and the determination to survive.

Ginger & Rosa, directed by Sally Potter, stars Elle Fanning, Alessandro Nivola, Christina Hendricks, Timothy Spall, Jodhi May, Annette Bening and Alice Englert. The film premiered at Toronto Film Festival and was also shown at the 56th BFI London Film Festival.

Food from 6pm
Film 9pm

Riverfish music presents

The official release of 'DOMINO' a collaborative music video project from 3rd year Falmouth University film students and alternative pop/rock band, Boundless Brothers from Penzance.   Following the release of their debut EP 'UNTOLD' the band worked with their record label Riverfish Music and creative student production team to create their latest video release.

Working alongside Boundless Brothers and Riverfish Music has allowed us to experiment in areas of filmmaking we hadn't tried before. The combination of trying something new and working with likeminded people is an opportunity that most filmmakers aspire to have.  Everyone involved has been really supportive and we worked together to create a video for the band that we all enjoyed making and hope everyone will enjoy watching." - Olivia Povey (Producer), Rachael Jones (Director/Cinematographer)

Martha Tilston / Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies

Travelling folksters Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies present their intimate cabaret of joyful sing-a-long choruses and general participatory fun. Pirates, lizards, cracks in the wall and Basque cyclists all inhabit the songscape. And let's not forget that Beard Snood....

Of her latest album  The Sea  Tilston says Ive always had it in mind to make a traditional album. Singing trad songs is what I grew up with, not just from my father (Steve Tilston) and step mother (Maggie Boyle) but also on my stepfathers side of the family with its Geordie heritage (her stepfather is Frank Whately and uncle Kevin Whately, the actor known for his iconic roles in such beloved TV series as Lewis and Morse as well as movies like The English Patient). As noted earlier (above), among the family friends of her childhood was the legendary Bert Jansch (and Martha includes Black Waterside as a nod to his influence and presence in her work). The Sea is a brand new album of traditional songs about the sea and the stories of those whose lives are intertwined with and guided by contact with it. Each song has one of the above-mentioned family members, plus brother Joe Tilston and friends, singing or playing with Martha and she says: it has been a beautiful experience. We recorded most of it in a cliff side cottage in Cornwall and enjoyed trying to capture the magic and treachery of the deep.
