The Drystones

Two years ago these two lads stole our hearts and left Rhythmtree’s Didg Cafe audience crowing for more after performing a barnstorming set full of vim and vigour and youthful exuberance with just one acoustic guitar, a fiddle, a whistle and an unfair amount of talent to help them along.

Friends from schooldays, Alex and Ford are now widely regarded by many as the young bright lights in the UK’s roots and folk scenes winning plaudits, including BBC’s Steve Lamacq and Glastonbury’s Michael Eavis, awards and a braceful of music competitions against competitors of all genres.

Since appearing at Rhythmtree many other festivals have seen the light and snapped them up and they’ve appeared, and gone down a storm, in front of huge crowds supporting the likes of Ray Davies from The Kinks and The Shires.

It couldn’t happen to two more grounded or likeable lads and we’re thrilled they have agreed to return to Rhythmtree and put a spring in our Sunday afternoon steps again this year.
