The Blyth Power Ashes 2016

What The Ashes Did Next

Hello Everyone

We are delighted to confirm that The Blyth Power Ashes 2016 will take place on 26th - 29th August, and promises to be the most fabulous ever. We are very pleased to be returning to The Hunters Inn in Longdon, near Tewkesbury. The usual galaxy of stars, cricket action, and quaint pastoral pursuits will be supplemented this year by all manner of subversive activities, including another attempt by The Dear Leader to teach young people to play music, something that is frowned upon in a day and age in which art is something that was done by sacred cows thirty years ago, and has been replaced in the Nation’s hearts by a culture of ‘heritage’
Well we hate ‘heritage’. We rather embrace heresy, which is why when we dig up the bones of an old Blyth Power recording for ‘Ashes Monday’, we will do it with the style and panache of a bunch of tomb raiders rather than whiskered professors dusting off the sacred scrolls. This year it is Alnwick & Tyne.
No, it’s not ‘Ant Music’, but it’s pretty much everything else. See you at Hunters for the best long weekend of the summer!

Currently the line up is Blyth Power, Fishwife's Broadside, Pog, Boy in the Cupboard, Lying Scotsman, Cracktown, Jammie Sammy, Alcohol Licks, Robin Lawley, Wob, Teq, The Antipoet, Gary Kaye, Rachel Pantechnicon, Project Adorno, Michael James Parker, Refuse/All, On Trial UK, Verbal Warning, Monkish, Chris Butler, Tres Y El Ingles, Paul and Wendy Warning, Jerry Hellfire, Peaky Blinders, James Bar Bowen, The Disinclined, Fellow Travellers, Tim Holehouse, Doctor Bongo, Boatless Maniacs, Mick Tyas, Too Many Dragons, The Sturdy Beggar, Radio WKG and Johnny Campbell. We are waiting for a couple of others to confirm so at the moment the line up is full. Fastest yet I think!

Monday sees the return of the great Blyth Power fete, so anyone wanting to do their own stall please please do!
