NEWS: More artists announced for Sea Change festival in Totnes

Sea ChangeDates: 26th-27th August 2016
Location: Totnes, Devon

The brand new Sea Change music-and-arts festival – presented by Totnes’s award-winning Drift Record Shop – have just announced a new batch of artists. TOY, Alasdair Roberts, and Yorkston Thorne Khan have been added to the bill to play alongside British Sea Power, Luke Abbott, Rival Consoles and Totnes’s own much-loved celestial songsters Matthew And Me.

Heavenly Recordings’ esteemed nouveau-krautrock quintet TOY will be headlining the Heavenly Recordings night at Totnes Civic Hall on Friday 26th August, a venue that has previously featured shows from The Cure, Blondie, and The Fall and now makes a fibre-rich return to the realm of amplified rock music. Special guests of the Heavenly night will be Ultimate Paintings, authors of one of Drift Records’ albums-of-the-year in both 2015 and 2014.

Yorkston Thorne Khan will play in Totnes’s striking 15th-century St Mary’s Church. Indian sarangi maestro Suhail Yusuf Khan will be joined by James Yorkston (guitar) and Jon Thorne (double bass) for songs from their highly praised collaborative album Everything Sacred. Alasdair Roberts is another artist to grace the stage at St Mary’s, in an especially assembled trio with Stevie Jones (Sound of Yell) and Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells).

Keep an eye out for more artist announcements in February, which will include events at the restored Victorian cinema and at the historic Guildhall – plus more action from the festival partners The Quietus, Ways With Weirds and Folklore Tapes.
