THE PIG-at Combe

Saturday 28th July 12pm-10pm

The festival

The sound of the summer heads back to its new home in Devon for the second year running! Smoked & Uncut goes out with a bang in the lush grounds of the mellow, honey-coloured Elizabethan gem that is THE PIG at Combe; easily accessible –1.5 miles from Honiton and just off the A30 in the village of Gittisham, the summer holidays aren’t over just yet! Spend the day in the company of the rolling Devon hills, with like-minded music lovers and foodie feasters. 

THE PIG-at Combe's headliner is The Wailers!

Classic festi-food is order of the day across the festival, but if you fancy tucking into something a little heartier why not try one of our pop up feasting tents!

Chef Angela Hartnett and some of her chef friends will be hosting long table, family-style 3 course feasts in The Field Kitchen pop up, and Chef Mark Hix will be paying homage to the British love of a classic Indian takeaway with his Ruby Murray House, 2 courses in a canteen-style pop up! Tickets can be bought in advance for pop up feasts, and must be bought in addition to a standard entry ticket.

There is no camping at Smoked & Uncut, but if you would like to make a weekend of it why not book a room with the hotel directly and get your festival tickets included in your room rate.

Introducing our Main Stage artists...

The Wailers

The Wailers

The legendary Wailers band returns to bring its revolutionary sound to fans around the world. Steered by famed bassist and founder Aston “Familyman” Barrett, and joined in solidarity with original Wailers’ guitarists Junior Marvin and Donald Kinsey, The Wailers continue to make musical history.

From 1973 to 1980, Bob Marley & The Wailers recorded, toured, and performed before countless millions worldwide. Since 1981, Familyman and Junior have carried on the mission to “keep The Wailers together,” just as Bob requested, affirming: “By doing that, you keep me alive through the music.”

In tribute to the late co-founder and drummer Carlton “Carly” Barrett, The Wailers present Aston Barrett, Jr. on drums. It’s startling how the young powerhouse delivers with his uncle’s inspiring landmark style. Lead singer Joshua David Barrett is a Rastaman by lifestyle and culture. Josh delivers Bob’s powerful message of Jah love and unity through his performance and interaction with the audience.

Also on stage are singers Shema McGregor, daughter of I Three Judy Mowatt, and Hassanah, a multi-cultural powerhouse; veterans Owen “Dreadie” Reid on guitar/bass and Noel Davey on keyboards. The performance anchor is live engineer Dennis Thompson, the man responsible for The Wailers sound in stadiums, clubs, and studios throughout the ‘70s.

There are more than 250 million Bob Marley & The Wailers recordings sold, including 1977’s Exodus, anointed Best Album of the Century in 1999 by Time Magazine, and “One Love,” named Song of the Millennium that same year by BBC. Spin Magazine listed Bob Marley & The Wailers at #4 of the “50 Greatest Bands of All Times,” while The New York Times named Bob Marley the most significant musician of the 20th century. These accolades were made possible by the creative, timeless, and distinctive music, lyrics and production by these incomparable Wailers musicians.

Judi Jackson

Judi Jackson

Having recently released her debut EP Blame It On My Youth, 24-year old vocalist Judi Jackson is a young vocal talent whose star is firmly on the rise. Judi’s music blends elements of soul, jazz and R&B, and adorned with lush harmonic textures and melodic touchstones on themes of love and family.

 Although not yet a household name, Jackson’s music has been heard by many following a guest appearance on Snarky Puppy’s Grammy-winning album Family Dinner - Volume One, for which she composed and performed the track “Only Love”, and as a result of a high profile support slot with Mavis Staples.

Performing since the age of 12, Jackson was fully set on her path following an impromptu encounter with Wynton Marsalis who subsequently sent her a box of music that became the seed of inspiration for her development as a vocalist. Jackson began listening to and studying the sounds of Blossom Dearie, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald and Mahalia Jackson amongst many others and was soon performing across America and the UK. 

 

Although lauded for her popular tribute shows, which see her performing the works of Nina Simone and Amy Winehouse, it’s through her own music that Jackson’s unique talent truly shines. As accomplished a songwriter as she is a performer, Jackson has been described as possessing a tone and poise beyond her years and at the age of 24 the singer-songwriter from Raonoke, Virginia is set for a lengthy and fascinating career.
