BEEN & GONE

The festival

THE PIG, Brockenhurst - 18th June 2022 - BEEN & GONE

From humble beginnings, Smoked & Uncut at THE PIG has grown up from acoustic Sunday sessions in the bar to a buzzing celebration of food and music! 

Nestled in the heart of the ancient New Forest, chill out under the trees and soak in the sounds of the summer whilst sipping on your favourite tipple…or two.

Classic festi-food is order of the day across the festival, but if you fancy tucking into something a little heartier why not try feasting with Angela in the restaurant or booking a table at “The Apprentice” Tent?

More than Music

In between garden-grooving and festi-feasting, make sure you check out all the happenings at Smoked & Uncut!

Head to our Glitter and Braid bars for the full festi- look, have a rummage through The Smoked & Uncut Bazaar, fill up on feel good over in the Field Spa, kids can head over to The Den, try on a few festi-frocks at the RIXO bus plus much more...

What's On

LULU HEADLINES AT THE PIG

Pop and blue-eyed soul singer Lulu has gained widespread recognition as one of the most exciting UK singers ever to have emerged onto the international stage. Lulu’s first real taste of commercial success came with the release of her top 10 hit single Shout, which was released in 1964. The Scottish solo artist has gone on to sell millions of singles with hits such as 'Try To Understand', 'Leave a Little Love', 'Let’s Pretend', 'Where The Poor Boys Dance', 'Take Your Mama for a Ride' and 'Independence', which have all made their mark on British pop history.

LISTEN TO LULU

The Main Stage

LULU

LULU

 “The first time I heard her sing, I knew we were born in the same pond” - James Brown

Lulu has been in the music business for 53 years. Yet she seems utterly undimmed by time, slim, vivacious and energetic, with an appealing combination of bright-eyed sprightliness and a very adult, no-nonsense directness. “I was thrown into this business in my childhood. It’s a minefield, you see so many people harmed by believing in their success. You think you’re invincible, then crash, it all comes down. I’ve managed to look like I’m holding it together but it ain’t been easy. This is what I’m talking about, everything that I’ve been through in my life. It’s really about going beyond the problems everyone’s got. I’ve been there, done it but now I’m living in the solution. That’s what it’s about!”

Lulu started young, a 15-year-old Scottish soul sensation. Throughout her career she brought us stone classics such as 1967 number one To Sir With Love, 1969 soul stormer Oh Me Oh My (I’m A Fool For You Baby), 1974 Bond theme The Man With The Golden Gun, Bowie collaboration The Man Who Sold The World and even her 1993 smash with Take That on Relight My Fire. Her most recent, self-written album “Making Life Rhyme” (Decca) stands head and shoulders with Lulu’s very best and most loved work.

Such was the success of this that Britain’s first great female rock and soul voice performed a successful nation-wide tour in 2015, which culminated with a summer packed with festival appearances including the infamous Glastonbury. In 2016 and 2017, she went back on the road with two sell-out UK tours, stretching from Aberdeen to Torquay.

2019 saw Lulu perform with Take That, as their very special guest on all their Greatest Hits Live stadium and arena UK dates, performing at over 35 venues.

The summer of 2021 saw Lulu perform a series of outdoor shows with Boy George and Culture Club. These will continue into the summer of 2022. She closed her year as a special guest with Jools Holland, performing three songs on his popular Autumn/Winter 2021 tour.

Geno Washington

Geno Washington

Geno originates from Evansville in Indiana, USA and first came to England in the 1960's as part of the US Air Force. His love of Blues and Soul music soon found him jamming with local bands in and around Ipswich and eventually led him to London where he caused a sensation singing with top R&B acts Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames and Zoot Money's Big Roll Band at the legendary Flamingo Club in Soho.  The rest, as they say, is history.

Geno teamed up with some of London's hottest musicians and Geno Washington and the Ram Jam Band very quickly became established as the most exciting live band in Britain, regularly topping the bill over World famous artists, as nobody in their right mind wanted to go on stage after a Geno show!

His live shows were immortalised in two of the biggest selling albums of the 60’s - "Hand Clappin' Foot Stompin' Funky Butt Live" and "Hipsters Flipsters and Finger Poppin' Daddies". His status as the undisputed "King of Soul" was cemented forever by Kevin Rowland and Dexy's Midnight Runners in the 1980’s with the World-wide No.1 smash hit single "Geno", which paid homage to the great man himself and is still played regularly today on national radio and at Geno's live gigs both before and after shows.

Whether it's Geno Washington and the Ram Jam Band or Geno Washington and the Yo Yo's you can be sure of one thing and that is a barnstorming live show that never lets up in intensity or excitement and delivers the goods every time!

True Strays

True Strays

True Strays are lifelong friends, songwriters and country boys – Joseph James and James Cameron – from Bristol, England who are fast carving out a niche of their own in the UK Americana scene. Their music is a cathartic celebration of alternative roots americana and blues rock.

Their songs focus on the dirt that life throws at you and how struggle can be transformed into something better. The prolific songwriting duo draw influences from classic sounds such as Neil Young, Muddy Waters, Fleetwood Mac and modern retro inspired acts like Alabama Shakes, Gary Clark Jr and the Black Keys.

From the rock and roll circumstances of their first meeting, in a sand pit in playgroup 30 odd years ago, they have completed countless UK tours, supported bands as diverse as My Baby and Elles Bailey, been jump started by Keith Allen, played by BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 4, played their first European dates, survived 70+ festival shows at prestigious festivals like Green Man, Boom Town, Larmer Tree and Shambala and have been featured on the Spotify’s Nu-Blue and Modern Blues Rock playlists.
