Acoustic line-up revealed for Wickerman Festival

Acoustic line-up revealed for Wickerman Festival. International acoustic act ‘Emmet Scanlan and What The Good Thought’ are set to headline the Acoustic Village at this summer’s Wickerman Festival.  The Galway based 5-piece are a colourful fusion of Scots, Irish, Swedes and Italians. The unusual mix of instrumentation and nationalists is reflected in the music which is described as ‘Veering away from the norm but embraced by the majority.’ Grabbing another top billing slot is the youthful Rachel Sermanni, the Highlands based songstress will entertain the acoustic faithful with her unique take on lyrical folk music. Her audience can expect fiddles, piano and according to her website ghostly noises and shoobaps. The distantly spaced cities of Sydney and Aberdeen are responsible for the talented trio who are otherwise known as The String Contingent. They will present the Wickerman audience with a highly individual blend of baroque chamber music, Scottish fiddle and bluegrass. Other confirmed performers for the July event include alternative country soloist Jill Jackson (ex Speedway) and perennial festival favourite Andi Neate. Festival regulars will also notice that for 2010 the Acoustic Village will swap places with the Bass Camp Dance Village, this will now place the acoustic acts within a stone’s throw of the festivals quiet camping field. Acoustic booker Nicola Black welcomed the move saying ‘Much of our audience are family orientated and it makes perfect sense for us to pitch up next to the quieter elements of the festival.’ The Wickerman Festival takes place on the 23rd & 24th July at East Kirkcarswell Farm, near Kirkcudbright on the Solway Coast. Acts announced so far include Ocean Colour Scene, The Saw Doctors, The Futureheads, Codeine Velvet Club, The Grass Mountain Hobos, The Undertones and many more. Further headline acts for the main stage, dance arena and scooter tent are expected to be announced soon.
