Steve Mojo explains.....

"Following the resounding success of

“Acoustic Gathering I & II” this year’s event

rings the changes, the bill this year will not

feature any acts from the previous 2 festivals

but will feature many out of town guests,

local acts who have not featured before, plus

the fantastic 3 DAFT MONKEYS headlining.

“Acoustic Gathering III” will take place on

Sunday 14th September 2008 in the

beautifully revamped faux-oriental setting of

Peasholm Park.

The acoustic acts will perform from the

bandstand on the lake under the towering

gaze of the gloriously rebuilt pagoda.

Similarly to last years event, over 20 acts will

feature on the bill, and over half of them will

be guests from all over the country

showcasing a nationwide wealth of talented

singer songwriters, this festival gives them

the platform to perform in front of as many

as 2000 music lovers.

Featuring over 20 acts ranging from local

legends Stony, to the madcap mayhem of

Manfat Voodoo & Johnny Jump Up, Flamenco

Guitarist Mark Boden from Middlesbrough,

phenomenallly talented duo Morales/Watts,

to rising modern female artistes such as

Steph Fraser, Holly Taymar & Natasha


The event will be headlined by Cornwall

based 3 Daft Monkeys, who combine rousing

vocals, frenetic fiddling, rhythmical 12-string

guitar, dancing bass and foot drum.

" A brilliant Band ... absolutely amazing " Mike

Harding, BBC Radio 2

Whether it's Celtic, Balkan, Gypsy, Spanish,

Cornish or other World Music you are drawn

to, you will hear it's influences in their self

written music. Add to this the band's varied

backgrounds from Dance, Dub, Punk, Reggae

and Traditional Folk, and you have a stunning


Their highly anticipated new studio album

‘Social Vertigo’ has been hailed as a dynamic

and astonishing album, demonstrating

superbly the band’s varied and accomplished


Whatever your taste in music, come and see

them live ... their unique blend of high

octane, funked-up folk is guaranteed to get

you dancing!!

Preceded by ex Little Angels vocalist Toby

Jepson (currently with Fastway & Gun), and

witness the return of Fame Academy star

Alastair Griffin plus a set from Edwina Hayes,

a fantastic Country & Western artiste who

performs regularly in Nashville, and recently

supported Nanci Griffith and The Blue Moon

Orchestra at The Wedgewood Rooms,


All facilities are on site including catering,

bar, toilets, festival stalls, kids

entertainment area, & as the dusk falls,

projections will illuminate the stage.

With plenty of room for families, lots of

space to relax and disabled access, everybody

is welcome at Scarborough’s very own

boutique acoustic festival which is shaping up

up to be the must attend event of this year’s

“Indian Summer”. "  - Steve Mojo
