Dr Butler's Hatstand Medicine Band
Dr Butlers Hatstand Medicine Band, being a morally good medicine band, making music of merriment with tones of joy in celebration of the tonic, titillation and tuneful etiquette of life. Dr Butlers Hatstand Medicine Band present to you their good time rags and reels, show stoppers and sight stealers; music for foot stomping and toe tickling that joins hearts with flesh whilst invigorating the thinking mind. Dr Butlers Hatstand Medicine Band stand before you as harbingers of gentility, bearers of ingenuity, possessors of conviviality, enhancers and champions of upright and virtuous behaviour and caretakers of chivalric honour.
Emotionally charged and beautiful songs created in Jamie's mind made real, with touches of meloncholy, a raw musicianship and Shane McGowan's idea of tenderness
Winter North Atlantic
Beautifully plucked guitars, interesting drum patterns and a lightness of touch that comes as a total refreshment after listening to the Nelly single three times in a row with no brain response whatsoever. You could make a case for this being instrumental hip-hop a la RJD2 but it sways more towards the folktronica of Four Tet.
Add to this the sultry performances of the delicious Dagger Dames from Leeds Burlesque who will be performing later on in the evening and and adding a portion of much needed titilation to the Moorfest vibe.
Also in attendence will be Best Joined Up are an art collective who will be doing live art and then auctioning it off. They're all from a graffiti/street art background and showing off our drawing skills to pretty girls and boys is one of their motivations. They may even do a little live tatooing with markers on the night.
I'll also be doing a quiz of some sort if there is any time in between bands which will be split into two categories, general knowledge and Moorfest. Prizes include goodies, booty, boons and maybe even a bonus or two.
So all in all, a ripping good yarn!
