The Drystones are our very own home grown band who have gone on to great things. Their first ever performance was here at Priddy. They are a young (just finished University) lively folk duo from Priddy playing violin, guitar and whistle, who have made a big splash since they formed in July 11. They are currently nominated for the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award.
In 2015 they played the Glastonbury extravaganza supporting Ray Davis and The Shires, they won the Larmer Tree Break Through Music Award 2015, and have played festivals all over the Country (including Broadstairs, Sidmouth, Folk East, Warwick and Purbeck). At their 2013 Glastonbury Festival performance they were highlighted by Steve Lamacq on Radio 2 as his “recommendation of the day”. They are just touring their third album which had a great reviews and was a Songlines Magazine “Top Of The World” Album. Living Tradition has said “To describe their instrumental style as spirited and animated would be akin to asserting that Bellowhead can be quite an energetic band”
For just two people they make a lot of sound, you will not be bored!
