Wolvestock 18 - Free Country Music Festival – Sat 21st + Sun 22nd July - East Park , Wolverhampton

This weekend, Wolverhampton Civic Halls have teamed up with sponsors Banks’s once again to bring you Wolvestock 18 - Country Music Festival - this year promises another bumper crowd, and don’t forget it’s still free!!

The entertainment begins at 11.00am and runs non-stop until 8.00pm on both days.

This year’s highlights…

Travellin Rose

New country music sensation, Travellin Rose, are a spitfire duo from London , England . They write sassy lyrics with plenty of attitude, and these self proclaimed ‘trailer trash’ girls have the talent to back it up.

Kelly Lee and Talia Smith were introduced by a mutual friend who knew of their love of country music and their songwriting abilities. Both girls hit it off instantly and within no time at all they had an ever growing catalogue of songs and they wondered what to do with them.......and Travellin Rose was born...........

If you ask the girls to describe the duo they both laugh and say 'Trailer Trash'......but in a good way' they add.... then they start to explain...

Toy Hearts
This Birmingham based sister fronted outfit have been not-so-quietly carving out their own niche in the Americana and Roots music scene for a while now, so if you haven’t been to one of their shows before you are in for a real treat. And, although it may seem improbable that two young women from the Midlands would have the ability to produce authentic and innovative Country music, you really should leave those pre-conceptions at the door.GGeordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys are winners of the 2011 Music PEI Awards for Roots/Traditional Group Recording of the Year and Instrumental Recording of the Year! They've also been nominated for Roots/Traditional Group Recording of the Year at the 2011 ECMAs! Hailing from Prince Edward Island , the award-winning Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys serve up old-time roots music with an energy level that practically yanks you out of your seat by the collar.

Brian Hughes and his Band are one of the UK ’s finest original material Americana / New Country bands.

From the shores of Loch Lomond, Scotland, they have established themselves as a ‘hot ticket act’ in the UK country music festival scene, where they have set the standard in original material shows, and are now viewed as contenders for the ‘Next Big Thing’.

Henry Smith is one of the most well respected singer/songwriters in the UK, don’t miss his show, he is a one man concert on his own, so when he has his band with him, it’s a knockout – it’s Henry Smith’s Country Dreams. Henry won 2010 British Country Music Awards band of the year.

The Diablo's from Brighton are widely regarded as the best country rock band in England .

Donna Wylde has twice won Female Entertainer of the Year at the British Country Music Awards.

Line Dancing Highlights…

World Champion Rob Fowler has won so many Crystal Boots at Linedancer magazine's annual awards ceremony that he says he needs a bigger wide screen TV cabinet to display them all! Success always comes as the result of hard work and Rob is always on the move. In addition to teaching at his regular club classes in Liverpool and Harrogate , he teaches privately and is in constant demand on the increasingly busy weekend Line dance circuit. Rob will keep up the line dance pace along with the rest of ‘The Crew’.
John Grrowler Rowell is one of Britain 's top dance instructors. John will be accompanying Rob Fowler on stage.

Paul Bailey is the quintessence of Line dance to many dancers. His talent and style are legendary and his easy going manner makes him a pleasure for organisers and fans alike. 

Richard Palmer has been nominated for "Dedicated Linedance Artist" at the 2012 BCMA Awards.

Glenn Rogers has long campaigned on behalf of the UK country scene and his work on other projects enable him to dedicate time to his biggest passion, promoting country music and new country music artists across Europe.
