We are delighted to have a number of top bands and musicians performing at the Nottingham Food festival, adding to that sense of ambiance as you wander between the stalls and demonstrations or relax in the sunshine.
Those of you at the Nottingham Food Festival last year will remember Saxophonix – the talented group of young saxophonists who wandered the grounds, providing a background to everything going on, and always seeming to pick the perfect mood for every area! We’re delighted to be welcoming them back this year, under the enthusiastic direction of band leader Mr Jon Eno.
Josh Kemp (Sunday Only)
Josh uses just an acoustic guitar and a loop pedal to create a sound to rival a band. Having played 220 gigs in 2013 on repetitive tours of the UK, Josh’s well practiced audience participation means his set is well suited to both main stage festivals and more intimate acoustic gigs.
“A Notts star on the rise….his uplifting tracks filled with catchy melodies and truthful lyrics are sure to blow you away. Top this off with silky sweet vocals and there you have it, Josh Kemps recipe for gig success!” – Maddie Hammond and Ashleigh Bossman, TOP 3 GIGS – Week Beginning 20th August. (Aug 19, 2012)
