THE PIG-near Bath - BEEN & GONE

Saturday 9th July 12pm-11pm

Not Your Average festival.

THE PIG-near Bath - BEEN & GONE

Set against a backdrop of the rolling Mendip Hills and quintessentially English views of this undiscovered part of Somerset! Expect more glamour than grunge, with a line-up of handpicked classic and contemporary artists, home-made festi-food, local ales and the odd cocktail.

Make the most of the festival vibes and spectacular surroundings and sleep under the stars in your very own bell-tent. Cosy up in the glamping village, tuck into Chef Angela Hartnett’s Italian banquet (maybe even share stories with her around the campfire over an Aperol Spritz), and dance like no one is watching to good old fashioned rock and roll!

THIS FESTIVAL HAS NOW BEEN & GONE

Dub Pistols

Dub Pistols

Dubbed ‘the hardest working man in showbiz’ by music industry peers, Barry has worked in music all his adult life. An Ibiza original who had his life changed by acid house, he started running club-nights in London and had soon formed a band, Deja Vu, who arrived during the Flowered Up/Happy Mondays ‘baggy’ era.

When Deja Vu split, Barry started DJing and the Dub Pistols formed out of some of these madcap DJ sessions. Releasing the first Dub Pistols album, ‘Point Blank’ in 1998, the last two decades have been a riot of storming shows, missed opportunities, big bad basslines, calamities and triumphs — with scarcely a dull moment in between.

Fast forward to 2022, and Barry Ashworth’s merry gang of outlaw reprobates are busier than ever and remain an unstoppable force in the UK’s alternative music scene. With a new album ‘Addict’ released in 2020 in the autumn (on Sunday Best), the premiere of a brand new band documentary and much more!

The Cinelli Brothers

The Cinelli Brothers

The Cinelli Brothers is a project born out of a common passion for the electric Chicago and Texas blues from the 60s and 70s, when brothers Marco (guitarist and lead singer) and Alessandro (drummer) decided to form an explosive team showcasing original repertoire in the style of Chess, Stax and Motown.

Joining the two brothers on stage, Tom Julian-Jones on harmonica, guitar and vocals and Stephen Giry on bass, guitar and vocals.

Their debut album Babe Please Set Your Alarm was recorded at the Soup Studio in London and the full live and analog recording was released in May 2018 on vinyl and digital format.
The record went number 2 in the IBBA (Independent Blues Broadcasters' Association) in June 2018.
The band is been featured in Blues in Britain, Blues Matters, Classic Rock and other magazines.
This album comprises nine tasty original compositions and three finely crafted covers. ‘Chain of Fools’ by Don Covay (an Aretha hit), ‘Back Door Man’ – which stays true to Willie Dixon’s number - and Prince’s ‘Kiss’, in a remarkable shuffle rhythm.

Music Republic Magazine nominated Marco Cinelli as Best Guitar Player of 2018.

Legendary radio and broadcaster David ‘Kid’ Jensen has played a different track from their album on six consecutive weeks of his United Djs radio show, naming them as his favourite blues outfit, and his favourite blues album in many years.

On the 30th of November 2021 the band released their second album “Villa Jukejoint” in conjuction with a SOLD OUT show at the legendary 100 Club in London.
Recorded at home with only 1 microphone, the record has a unique vintage and retro feel typical of the ‘50s and earlier ‘60s!

February album of the month for the IBBA, which broadcasted a different song each week, the records has been featured magazines in the UK, Spain, and in the Netherlands, with fantastic reviews.

In 2020, 2021 and 2022 the band has been nominated for the UK Blues Awards as “Blues Band Of the Year”.
In January this year the record “Villa Jukejoint” was nominated for the UK Blues Awards as “Blues Album Of the Year”.

The Cinelli Brothers champion a new generation of passionate musicians sharing in the love of Blues, Soul, R&B and the true authentic sounds that have made the blues a cornerstone of music history.

Jack Lukeman

Jack Lukeman

Jack Lukeman is an Irish singer-songwriter, performer, raconteur and a whole lot more besides. A platinum-selling, critically acclaimed artist in his homeland, in recent years Lukeman has devoted more of his time to winning a growing fanbase in the UK and abroad. In this regard, he has toured the UK as Special Guest on tours by artists as varied as Imelda May, Jools Holland, The Proclaimers and Neil Sedaka. Along with the rest of the world Jack’s touring had all been moved several times then shelved. Finally, he returns to live shows in the UK, he hasn’t been idle in lockdowns, having performed 30+ livestreams, all different shows having learnt songs by some of his favoured artists, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen and many more. A live lockdown album came from those sessions and he came close to doubling his Facebook followers.   Lukeman is a compelling, dazzling stage performer. Incorporating the theatrical and romantic sensibilities of the likes of Jacques Brel, but with genuine melodic appeal and a knack for creating his own ‘magic realist’ world that is peopled by all manner of unusual, picturesque characters - Lukeman is a rare, unusual brand of performer.

2022 is Jack’s time to really focus on the UK, he is headlining the 6,000 capacity 3Arena Dublin in November this year, so he largely won’t be performing in Ireland other than that show.

The best music artists know that the world of the recording studio and onstage are two entirely different mediums – Lukeman’s recordings are colourful, absorbing collections, but it’s in the live environment, where his stage craft and desire to inspire really take flight. Despite the many achievements he has notched up in his lengthy career, Lukeman still has the hunger and drive to take his music to new audiences. Pre-Pandemic, during 2019 he took to the road in the UK with his own headlining shows, and more special guest appearances with Caro Emerald, The Proclaimers and Jools Holland - offering yet more proof of the outstanding versatility and unique talent of Jack Lukeman. From clubs to concert halls, theatres to festivals, Lukeman has the performing power and compelling presence to win over the most demanding of crowds. One of which will be in Bonn, Germany July 10 when he is opening for Sting.

Mereki

Mereki

Australian/English artist Mereki makes conscious pop music. Now based in the UK, Mereki moved from Australia to the USA & serendipitously began writing and releasing music with now esteemed writers & producers Dan Nigro (Olivia Rodrigo) & Justin Raisen (Charli XCX, Sky Ferreira). East LA and it’s blossoming music community became the perfect setting for her songwriting and voice to mature as she laid the foundations for what was to come. Her talent was spotted by Grammy-nominated superstar producer Ariel Rechtshaid (HAIM, Vampire Weekend, Madonna, Adele) who signed her to his publishing company, Heavy Duty Music / Concord. Mereki’s introduction to LA’s pop songwriting academy came as a co-writer on the track ‘Golden Boy’ recorded by fellow Australian icon Kylie Minogue. Since then Mereki has scored writing credits with Phantogram, Kitten & Atrak as well as guesting and co-writing tracks with Dhani Harrison, Goldroom, Basenji, Flight Facilities and Holychild, to name but a few. Whilst fronting Goldroom, Mereki performed everywhere from middle America to NYC to Bogotá, Colombia. And, most recently, just before the world changed, she performed with Electronic act Flight Facilities as their featured vocalist on the duo’s sold out North American tour. Amidst all of her collaborations Mereki managed to release her debut solo single, ‘Blue Lake’, to critical acclaim from the
likes of Spin, Nylon and Flood Magazine.

After enduring some personal tragedy and heartbreak, she segued briefly into the catharsis of high-energy punk rock, releasing a few singles that landed her music in a Victoria’s Secrets commercial. Mereki’s last release returned to the essence of who she truly is. Whilst having a distinctly pop- feel with positive messaging, tracks like ‘Spiritual’, ‘French Kissing’ and ‘Got It All’ also hold an other-worldly quality. In 2022 Mereki is set to release her debut solo album ‘Death of a Cloud’ which follows her personal journey through loss into rebirth and self-realisation.
