The Claze are a 4 piece band from Wadebridge playing their own brand of folk rock, their songs are a simple heart-felt narrative of everyday life experiences and deep reflections of the very real stories told to them by local people. Their writing is reflective with a sense of place, and are inspired their faith, by acts of great courage, and by how people cope with searing loss and of second chances. 4 lads, 3 chords and a touch of soul!!

Wille and the Bandits  

14.00 - main stage 

Wille and the Bandits are renowned for their diverse songwriting and often likened to the greats of the 70’s such as Led Zeppelin, Santana and Pink Floyd. They are famous for creating an astonishingly huge sound, incorporating eclectic grooves from World music to Heavy Rock, using bizarre instrumentation such as Tongue Drum, Djembe, Lap steel guitar and Double bass, pushing the boundaries of what is expected of a modern three piece. 

Having toured their unique brand of roots rock with the likes of Deep Purple, Joe Bonamassa, The John Butler Trio and Status Quo Wille and the Bandits are now proudly touring their brand new, critically acclaimed album 'Breakfree'. Playing over 200 gigs a year, this band put on a ‘bloody good show’. We feel very lucky to have them on stage here at Henry’s and are looking forward to watching them, as they are claimed to be one of the most impressive live acts of this generation!

 Samuel Hansen

14.45 bar stage

We have only recently been introduced to Sam Hensen, a young musician from Taunton, now based in Falmouth. Sam's music is influenced by the likes of Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald, with a love of Radiohead slipping in there to. He sings a wide variety of covers, mainly jazz, and throws in a few of his own songs for good measure and what treasures they are too! Sam has a powerful and evocative voice, which he seems to adapt with utter perfection to the meaning of each individual song, portraying every lyric beautifully as if it were felt from his own heart. Well worth a listen. 

As well as his solo performances on Friday & Saturday, Sam can also been on Sunday accompanying Dan Chapman with guitar and voice.

Black Velvet 

15.30 - main stage

Black Velvet are a traditional Irish band based in Newquay. They are the only ''all one family'' band in Cornwall. Alan and Caroline, along with their gorgeous daughter Emma provide an endless repertoire of fantastically performed traditional Irish music with a touch of comedy. Lively and upbeat, your feet will not just be tapping, you are more likely to be dancing around the ‘Sunset Stage’ like a 'Spingo fueled spring lamb', bounding with energy you didn’t know you had.  Though be warned their music, like any proper Irish tunage, can have a strange affect on people. They have some fascinating stories from the wide range of gigs they play worldwide, ranging from hotel weddings to gigs in ‘mineshafts’ and ‘treeless mountaintop surrounded by clouds and oxygen starved sheep’. 

We are delighted to have Black Velvet back on our stage, I danced endlessly when they played the first ever Little Big Gig, it was amazing, we can't wait!

Tim & Athene from the famed 3 Daft Monkeys are joining us with an acoustic set at this years festival! We are absolutely stoked!! The 3 Daft Monkeys are one of our favourite bands and have the reputation as one of the best live acts on the circuit!! It's going to be a real treat to hear a 'stripped back' set from Tim & Athene. They will do a mixture of 3 Daft Monkeys songs and some of their own stuff, which lives in the realm of quirky alternative folk. Drawing from their experiences on the road they will take the listener on a rollercoaster journey via the frenetic, the serene and the surreal. Not to be missed!!

We haven't even got started on his talent, he is currently playing with a fantasric fun-lovin band called "Cyder-fex", solo he plays a fantastic array of covers with utterly flawless perfection, not that you'll notice - you'll be too busy dancing! We love Adam and can't wait to have on stage for the third year in a row!!

Bert Miller And The Animal Folk

20.00 - bar stage

Bert Miller And The Animal Folk return to Henry's Little Big Gig for the second year running. Having released their debut album at the end of 2012, the band are coming to play our festival as part of their summer tour. They describe their set as 'post water-shed disney songs about Bert and the underbelly of all things animal. Formed in 2005, they are ‘one of the most unique bands’ coming out of Bristol. The have a unique take on the art of storytelling through their music, which is enjoyed by audiences of all ages. Their songs are by turn eccentrically happy and darkly funny. They are well suited to the Henry's vibe, their crazy, innocent and playful stories are very tongue-in-cheek, hilarious and, if you are in the wrong mood, can be, mildy offensive! They have to be one of my favourite bands from last year's festival, we are really looking forward to their adventurous form again this year. :-)

The People String Foundation 

21.00 - main stage

Scaling the heights of jazz, hip-hop beatwork, middle eastern melodies – performed with an eye towards experimentation and a nod toward the avant-garde. Essentially the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist and jazz singer Ben Sutcliffe and world / blues guitarist Zaid AlRikabi, the duo combine to wonderful songwriting effect but its in their live performances that the group ignite, enlisting the assistance of a troupe of inspired musicians.
