Damh The Bard:
A modern-day Bard whose spirituality and love of folk tradition is expressed through his music, storytelling and poetry. Drawing on the Bardic tradition, his performances are both entertaining and educational, speaking directly to the heart, and never without a good splash of humour.

A musical storyteller who works within the world of myth: where the Faerie really do dance on Midsummer’s Eve, where the trees talk, and the Hollow Hills take you into the realms of Annwn, where the Goddess rides her horse, guiding you to magic, and the Horned God of old calls to you from the shadows of the Greenwood.

Green Diesel:
Hailing from Faversham in Kent, folk-­rock band Green Diesel first emerged in 2009 and take their inspiration from the depths of English folk lore and legend and the classic folk rock sound of their predecessors Fairport Convention and The Albion Band.

‘a band with roots deep in the native soil, playing their own electric interpretations of ancient English music and crafting originals that fit seamlessly alongside the traditional tracks’ – Shindig!

Green Diesel

  • Hailing from Faversham in Kent, the folk-­rock band Green Diesel first emerged in 2009 and take their inspiration from the depths of English folklore and legend and the classic folk-rock sound of their predecessors Fairport Convention and The Albion Band.

    Folk-rock in grand style with energy to light up the crowd. Green Diesel features songs inspired by the darker side of folklore. Sinister spirits and bloodstained tales weave their way through many of their songs backed by the signature Green Diesel sound. English folk, red in tooth and claw.
