Tingewick’s micro music festival will be even bigger and better this year, according to promoter Mike Trotman, of Empty Room Promotions.

Doors open at 5.30pm on Saturday, July 13, for Tingestock 2013, at Tingewick Village Hall.

“Arrive early, stay late and eat lots,” said Mr Trotman.

“We have five acts involving four bands, some 20 musicians who will be playing for over five hours and all for just £13, which I reckon is pretty good value for money. In addition, the Royal Oak pub will be organising a barbecue and we also have a CD exchange.”

All the bands involved are on the Clubhouse Records label, which helps organise the event every year.

The Leeroy Stagger Band from Canada are currently getting rave reviews for their new album, Truth Be Sold.

The Redlands Palomino Company are the UK’s best-loved country rock band, described by BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris as “exceptional”.

The band have gained scores of devoted fans in the UK and beyond, thanks in part to their trademark harmonies, their often riotous live shows and enthusiastic support from a radio DJs.

Case Hardin are a country rock five-piece at the top of their game, whose music is all about the story and the telling of the story.

Troubadour Rose comprise violinist Gary Bridgwood, banjo and mandolin player Lizzy O’Connor and songstress Bryony Afferson producing English folk with great harmonies.

Rutland singer-songwriter Paul McClure, the former frontman of the Hi & Lo,breaks out with his new album.

Tickets cost £13 in advance, £15 on the door. Available from the Royal Oak, Tingewick, the Tourist Information Centre at the Old Gaol in Buckingham, or online at www.wegottickets.com/emptyroompromotions
