The Doctor Will See You Now

- Life as a one-hit wonder

The Rev Dr. Clive Jackson, singer of Doctor and the Medics, combines all the elements of his career in one hilarious roller-coaster of a two-man multimedia presentation of his often bizarre, certainly idiosyncratic and at times, ridiculously funny career.

A seated show, with interval.

INDOOR STAGE

The Rye Sisters

Lincolnshire duo Ishani and Sue perform Americana and folk-country songs in close harmony with guitar and fiddle. They pull from broadly American influences, such as The Civil Wars, The Secret Sisters, Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons.

INDOOR STAGE

"Big Joe Bone" (A.K.A. Danny Wilson) plays what he calls "Blues-Grass" music.....a mix of Delta Blues, Bluegrass, Oldtime, Gospel and Hillbilly music utilizing his raspy vocals, hard driving harmonica rhythms, sublime bottleneck slide guitar playing and lightning finger-picking skills on 5 string banjos.....all held together by a very heavy stomping boot!
