The South Downs Green Fair is becoming something of a date on the local music circuit.  

We are always lucky to have the very best bands playing at the Fair.

The Bluesbury Group (12.30pm) 

A collaboration between three seasoned performers who share a common passion for the blues and great music in general. When you combine three individual performers, each with their own style and strengths, the result is something special.

HOMETOWN SHOW (1.30pm)


Hailing from the South-Coast of England, Hometown Show has an authentic Americana/Bluegrass/Country sound. Heavily influenced by the old-time string bands of Appalachia and many modern day folk heroes.



ALL THINGS CONSIDERED (2.45pm)


Folk Fusion' is probably the closest you will get in trying to define the sound of Berkshire 5 piece All Things Considered.
Led by vocalist Emma Baldwin - whose haunting tones have been likened to Natalie Merchant among others, the band comprise driving fiddle player Gethin Webster, intricate acoustic guitarist Adrian Holden, soaring cello from Andrew Richardson and the groove based, almost tribal percussion of Phil Daniels. Their bold sound and wide musical influences make them both a distinctive, yet very accessible act - with their music reaching a diverse audience.
Having formed from the ashes of a number of acts in late 2007, the last few years have seen the band record and self promote 2 albums, tour all over the country and have their music played on BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music, multiple regional BBC folk and acoustic shows and radio shows and podcasts in the USA.
Steve Lamacq hailed them a 'talented young folk band', top folk music website Folking.com said they perform 'effortlessly beautiful songs with real feeling' and Folk and Roots wrote that their album Dance Through The Storm is '[a] hauntingly beautiful album, steeped in the rich, glowing history of folk music ... a memorable and enthralling collection of songs'.


The Dolomites (4pm)


A 5-piece female-fronted 50’s / 60’s band with that authentic rock ‘n’ roll sound. Their sound epitomises a bygone era of cool, lead singer in a 50’s halter neck frock and the guys in sharp suits and skinny ties.

The Surrey and Hampshire based band usually combine 4 great vocal talents with an epic sounding backing of lead and rhythm guitars, bass and drums. For the Fair, they will be creating a more acoustic take on things.

“The Dolomites” playlist includes original 1950’s raucous rock ‘n’ roll through to rousing 1960’s beat girl classics.
