We are looking forward to a full line-up of a variety of genres of live music at Northampton Food Festival, so why not grab a real ale and something to eat from the Piazza, and head over to our music stage where you can relax and enjoy the music – and hopefully the sunshine!
Bill Bailey Band
Get your feet tapping with the Bill Bailey Band as they present you with a selection of Traditional Jazz numbers. Live both Saturday and Sunday in the Music Marquee
The King’s Morris Men
Something a little different – The King’s Morris was formed in 1978. Like most modern teams, they are a revival side; that is; a team formed in a town that does not have a tradition of Morris Dancing. THE KING’S MORRIS are a Cotswold Mens team who perform jigs and dances mainly from the Bledington, Fieldtown, Bampton, Bucknell and Adderbury ‘traditions’.
Hot House Saxaphonix (Sunday)
A group of young musicians, recently back from a tour of some of the top jazz clubs in New York and New Orleans – who will bring the ambiance and life of saxophone music to Northampton Food Festival. Be warned though: we struggle to contain them to our music tent and you could meet them on a walkabout anywhere!
Songs, ayres, jigs and jollies from around Europe and across the centuries, played and sung with ancient, traditional and modern instruments
Hurdy-gurdy, small-pipes, guitar, ukulele, keyboard, whistles, bagpipes, crumhorn, saxophones, recorder, curtal chalumeau, rauschpfeife shawm, percussion and vocals
Come and find out!
