About the bands

The Legendary Ten Seconds have released four albums on the life and times of Richard III, and their music has received much critical acclaim and play in an English folk rock style with a strong medieval influence.  They will be playing songs from their new album which is called Sunnes and Roses, as well as favourites from their previous albums.

Mother’s Ruin is a band of five friends who share a love of folk and folk rock.  They play a range of traditional and contemporary upbeat songs, including covers from Lindisfarne, Richard and Linda Thompson, Bellowhead, Show of Hands, Jez Lowe, Blowzabella and some of their own compositions. The group have a lot of fun that is reflected in their foot tapping and informal performances.
