One Ground formed on the streets of London when Adriano Goès and Buster Redlox shared a busking pitch. Thank goodness they did or we wouldn't have them doing their frickin' awesome thing right here in Whiskers! Super cool duo with beautiful reggae sound and super chill vibe : )
Ric and Rob Harrison of Echo Town are well known on the festival circuit for their upbeat personalities and energetic stage presence, with a sound far too big for only two musicians. This high on life brother duo juggle multi-instruments in what could only be described as a Roots/Rock mash up with a tribal twist.
The crowd will hear the mind–altering tones of the didgeridoo and quality guitar sliding from Ric, combined with the heart reverberating drums and African style percussion from Rob. All accompanied by powerful lyrics and combatant instrument playing.
“… They produced an avalanche of highly danceable grooves that put a big hippie smile on all our faces. Lust for life electricity in the air all night long.” (Gig review By www.50thirdand3rd.com)
"… As if John Butler's lapsteel, Xavier Rudd's social commentary and Jack Johnson's catchy pop ideals have all been fused by the hands of two British songwriters." Richard Cadence (egigs.co.uk)

A real treat for you here guys with two incredible acts...
Arbour, the four man strong band who will be playing BOARDMASTERS this year, have created a rare chemistry of catchy melodies, poppy hooks and driving, etherial guitars. Arbour captures the core of folk pop, textured with intricate, addictive guitar and a driving rhythm section providing a raw, exciting and timeless musical accompaniment to Josh's unique voice and clever lyrics.
Years ago Cornish reggae rock artist Nick Mears decided to leave behind conventional education to travel the world. During these travels the focus of his career completely flipped and he began learning his new craft on the acoustic guitar. Thank goodness he did because this has led to him playing shows in all corners of the world...and tonight that corner is WHISKERS!
Calling all singers, guitarists, keyboard players, didgeridoo players, saxophonists and cow bell bangers. Newquay's favourite open mic needs you!
Come on down and show us your skills or come and observe the talent that surrounds you! Friendly, fun and welcoming - free drink for all performers from our friends at Tribute!
DO NOT MISS THIS GIG! Pioneers of the 'Gyp-Hop' sound, full of character and bouncy base lines, Gypsy Unit are definitely not your run-of-the-mill hiphop act. Combining a rowdy, cheeky party vibe with a quirky string section and hooky choruses, their trademark sound makes them one of the freshest acts to hit the scene.
