Adam Summerhayes violin
Tim Howard vocals, guitar, mandolin, dobro, banjo
Murray Grainger accordion
Jessie Maryon Davies presenter

Grab a partner, put on your cowboy boots, and swing around in our raucous hoedown with principal double bassist Ben Griffiths and his bluegrass/country band. Our next Lock-In ventures to the American South for a rip-roaring, toe-tapping barn dance of classics ranging from “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” to Aaron Copeland’s Hoedown.

As the lights go down in Hall One, we move across to Hall Two to grab a drink and settle in for a revelatory late-night series. Curated by Aurora Principal Players, each intimate and informal performance takes you on a journey of musical discovery across diverse genres and art forms.

Doors open – 9.15pm
Music begins – 9.30pm

NB seating is limited and cannot be booked in advance.
