The Leylines

The Leylines Press Shot_preview

The Leylines are British folk-punk for a summer’s afternoon, a sound forged in festivals and bonfires, with fiddle-driven rabble rousers and songs that stir the soul.

The band was formed by a group of West Country musicians driving home from a session at the legendary Sawmills studios. Levelling The Land by The Levellers was on the car stereo. Something about the sound of the record, the rolling Cornish landscapes and the smell of summer connected in vocalist Steve’s head. A product of council estates and stints in the Army, Steve put his observations on the state of the nation into music and started writing.

Adding the different musical backgrounds of band mates Matt (guitar), Pete (bass), Dave (drums) and Hannah (violin), The Leylines have created a style that combines the acerbic social commentary of Paul Weller with a folk-rock vibe that will send you right back to those long, hazy, festival days.

The band have a saying: “If you wouldn’t go out and have a drink with someone, don’t work with them.”

Some of their stuff?

Million Dollar Bash

Million Dollar Bash

The only tribute band who play both Bob Dylan and The Band in the UK. Based in Dorset, these seasoned musicians who normally play in different outfits, gig together as the Million Dollar Bash only a few times a year.

The sound is raw, unrehearsed but brilliant and always leaves the audience spellbound and wanting more. For anyone who likes Dylan or the Band, this is a must see. They will be playing out the festival on the Marquee stage.

Ady Milward....Drums/Vocal
Chris Lonergan.....Bass
George Hall......Lead guitar
Roye Membury.....Vocals/Guitar
Chris Kipper Roberts.....Vocal/Guitar
Tom Caulfield......there in spirit.

Dean Dyson

Born in Hull, but having lived most of his life in London, Dean has played many stages, from London's Barbican to Nashville's Bluebird Cafe over the last 45 years.

Recently, (in the last few years), having been invited by a fellow musician to play on the piazza in Covent Garden, he has literally taken his music on to the streets of Surrey and Hampshire, where he moved with his family in 2015

Just before Halloween 2016 he was filmed spontaneously by an internet publisher in Guildford and the clips went VIRAL. To date he has had over 10 million worldwide views on Facebook alone.

He is a singer-songwriter with four original albums and his songs have been covered internationally. He also has a passion for all kinds of “ heart and soul” music and loves to sing the classic song repertoire that spans the last 70 years, much of which he has recorded in his series of “Street Songs” which he has available for sale...

See for videos and links to his music.

WTF Band



The WTF band is the working title for a collective of over 10 outstanding musicians from around the UK, and are a bit like a box of chocolates - you are never quite sure which ones you are going to get! Musically however, you can be guaranteed to see a stellar line up, producing fantastic classic and not so classic tunes. For Chesil Rocks this year, the line up will be made up of the following possibles - Lee Worsley on drums, Steve Wilson on bass and vocals, Mick Taylor (former editor of Guitarist Magazine) strangely enough on guitar and Robbie McIntosh (former member of the Pretenders) on guitar and vocals.

When a reflective and soulful singer-songwriter from Dorset, Sarah de Warren, crossed paths with Manchester based music producer Feri Gyemant, the result was an unexpected, surprising and transfixing fusion of sound that led to the two forming XTALK. Although both had their respective solo projects before XTALK, Feri and Sarah had a musical connection that they simply couldn't ignore, and instantly began writing songs that pushed genre boundaries, resulting in songs that transport you to new dimensions the instant you hear XTALK's signature heavy beats beautifully and delicately contrasted with Sarah's lush vocals that call to mind hints of Massive Attack, BANKS, and Lamb, while still retaining a sound unmistakably its own.
Although XTALK recently launched, the duo has already performed in a coveted Kendall Calling festival slot and appeared at Sofar Sounds Sheffield. Their debut single ‘Wasted’ was broadcast on BBC Radio 1 after huge support from BBC Introducing in Manchester. The duo also performed live on the Introducing show.

XTALK's live shows draw you in with ambient electronic vibes where Feri provides the beats, synths and live vocal mixing with the help of Ableton Live and Push, Sarah sings and plays the keys, and the audience almost always falls into a haze of ethereal yet energising sound that leaves them transfixed the moment the duo begins to play. The future is indeed looking bright for XTALK, as they prepare to release their next single, and are playing a steady stream of impressive venues around the UK and Europe. True to the band name, XTALK will leave all who cross paths with its sound talking for days.
