The Correspondents bring their hi-octane genre-blending dance music to the Inner Bailey of Appleby Castle.  The duo consisting of singer Mr Bruce and producer Chucks,have been hailed as one of the best live acts in the UK. Mr Bruce assumes the look of a monochrome matador, singing with force, scatting at speed and dancing like his life depends on it while Chucks takes the audience on a journey through a multitude of genres from jazz and blues to the nether regions of electro and drum’n’bass. The duo featured in The Telegraph’s Top Ten Glastonbury Highlights two years in a row.

Gypsy Hill play an intoxicating mix of Balkan brass, Mediterranean surf rock, ska & swing. Featuring guitars, horns, tuba, a scratch DJ and a mix of live and electronic beats, Gypsy Hill effortlessly mix the traditional with a uniquely modern sound. They have a tour history that includes some of the UK and Europe’s biggest festivals (Glastonbury, Bestival, WOMAD, Sziget, Fusion, Winterthurer Musikfestwochen).
