Thornham Music in the Field, 2nd August NORFOLK

Music on the Field – Thornham 2014

Music on the Field returns bigger, better and with more on offer for all the family to Thornham’s Playing Field on Saturday 2nd August after a two year absence.

The 2014 Festival sees a wide variety of musical styles with some great new additions to the line-up as well as the return of bands enjoyed previously by local audiences. Eight bands feature with the concert opening at 2.00pm and playing till late.

Young Indie Rockers, Jimmy Rockit, feature along with Laura and the Sounds Easy Jazz trio, who wowed the audience last year on a hot summer’s day on the green. Pennyless, the innovative Lincolnshire folk trio, play the venue for the third time by popular request. New additions to the bill see the Darling Coreys, an all-girl blue-grass band from Norwich, Blues Tubes give it a little Rockabilly and Back Pages singing and playing from the Bob Dylan songbook.

Alongside the music there will be a children’s tent with Face-painting, juggling and jokes and the play area. Every festival needs its refreshments – a Pimms bar, Beer tent with real ales, food, BBQ  and refreshment tent provide these.

Practical details: Adult admission £10, under 12’s free. Campervans for overnight stay only, an additional £15, conditions apply. Dogs will be admitted if kept on a lead and under control. PL castle Inn

New Album Now Available – “Hanging Moon”

Pennyless release their fourth album in association with Rowdy Farrago Records. Following on from 2012 “Tales from the Tulgey Wood”, this new album “Hanging Moon” tells many stories of enigmatic English characters intertwined with folklore, poetry and highway robbery.

If you don’t believe in Magic and Love Fairy verge on pop, with psychedelic Arthur Quelling, and The Witch and the Chimney Sweep lying alongside Motley Crew sea shanty and the harp-based prose of Footsteps of Reynardine.

Pennyless have collaborated with writer Allen Adams of The Destructors and guest musicians Nick Penny, Colin Benton and Jo Hitchin to produce tracks with distinctive sound and variety. Click on our albums page to see track listings, buy album and write your own review!
