Andy Marshall

13.00 - bar stage

Cornish born Andy Marshall was introduced to Swing music by his musician father, Joe at an early age. This influence was to create a lifelong passion for the Big Band sound. Having played drums for various groups, dance bands and military bands, Andy finally teamed up with Jerri Hart and Andy Brodie to become part of the internationally renowned “Rhythm Doctors”. The Rhythm Doctors finally went their separate ways in 2003 having performed at no less than 7 Glastonbury Festivals.

Andy then turned his attentions towards a solo career by mastering an authentic crooning style and an ability to transport his listeners back to an age of dance halls and Vegas lounges. Captivating audiences nation wide with his renditions of such timeless classics as Come Fly with Me, Night and Day and Unforgettable. He’s going to be a real treat on Sunday’s Stage.

The Odd Folk

15.35 - main stage

The Odd Folk are a foot-stomping, freewheelin', folk and flamenco based outfit. These multi-intrumentalists are equally at home on a main-stage or in the corner of an old barn.  Once rooted in Cornwall, they are led by Morgan Val Baker, who plays just about everything including all the percussion with his feet. This unique collection of ramshackle musicians have been "wowing" audiences across the UK, treating each 'GIG-gle' with the same gusto, aiming to make people smile and bounce! I am already bouncing up and down with excitement, and desperately looking forward to seeing these ‘Odd Folk” live at Henry’s Little Big Gig. Bring the whisky by the Jar!!

Dan Chapman

16.30 - bar stage

Dan has a great fondness of beautiful things, explaining his passion for music and wildlife. I first heard him sing when we took a trip out to the cliffs to listen to manx shearwaters at night, and knew then, that despite his fantastic skills in photography, and his love of wildlife, music was his 'calling', so to speak. His skill on piano, guitar combined with his amazingly versatile voice is a real treat for anyone. The emotion that travels through his music is captvating, taking you on a journey deep into the soul and then lifting you out with a light hearted blast of whimiscal wonder. It's been a long time in coming but it's great to finally see him performing live. He and his wonderful side-kick Sam play with a swing, jazz and folk style, on electric guitar, producing wonderful vocal harmomies. Influences to note would be: Ella Fitzgerald, Buckley, Duke Ellington and old swing covers.

Joss White

18.00 - bar stage

Joss White is a teenage singer who has played gigs widely across the Southwest, including The Eden Project and Boardmasters Festival, some of them with his band The Klicks. He also has a strong following on-line (Youtube and Twitter). Although he plays traditional acoustic instruments, his voice lends itself to R and B and classic soul, and many of his new songs reflect this.

Moonlet and The Love-Monks

18.50 - main stage

Moonlet and The Love-Monks are an alternative-folk quintet from South West Cornwall. With their unique combination of quirky yet memorable lyrics and playful folk-inspired music, they are an up and coming presence in the Cornish music scene. We can’t wait to see these guys live. Their refreshing style will bring a smile to everyone’s face as they treat us to a unique communication of lively music, catchy melodies and comic wordplay.

Mischa & his Merry Men

20.00 - bar stage

With no easy way to pigeonhole, the closest description of this band of scoundrels is that of a folk band, that revels in blues based riffs, dabbles in funk grooves and bangs a lot of heart and passion through imaginative wordplay… Another super fun band set to get us moving at Henry's Little Big Gig!

PS. Tights are not included…but feel free to bring some.

A phenomenal ska – reggae band, with a big sound to bounce out to. This 9-piece band have been together since 2007 and have quickly become festival favourites in their native South West. Building a strong following across the region’s music venues, the band are again nominated in The South West Music Awards in 'Best Live Band' as well as 'Best Ska or Reggae Act' (which they won last year!) They are going to bring a fantastic close to Henry’s Little Big Gig, another one we just can’t wait for. Bring on your groove shoes for this one. :-)
