Fire in the Mountain 2019

Fire in the Mountain 2019

Fire in the Mountain 31st May - 2nd June 2019

2019 Music Line Up

After a bumper party year in 2018, this year we go back to our roots with a lot more traditional folk bands on the bill - it´s all about those fiddles and banjos! There are some amazing night time dancing bands booked too... deep folk by day, deep beats by night...

Following feedback in 2018, we are focussing a lot more on session spaces and workshops... The Travelling Barn will become the official late night session space from midnight until late, after the stage has closed (keep an eye out for some of our headline artists hosting these sessions! - Bruce Molsky on Friday, Chance McCoy on Saturday and Nick Hart and the Whiskey Moonface crew on Sunday). The Speakeasy will run Thursday - Saturday, and be closed on Sunday for an epic singalong with the Cash Cows. There will be 2 other tents open all day for sessions, as well as the campfire of course.

Spotlight Trinidad and Tobago
Another new things we are starting, and copying from the amazing Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow, is to “Spotlight“ the traditional music of another country/culture each year. After some of our crew visited a beautiful festival in Trinidad last year (New Fire Festival), we have chosen Trinidad and Tobago - bringing some Carnival Vibes to the hills of Mid Wales! Performing will be veteran Calypsonian Singer Tobago Crusoe and his band Tobago and D´Lime (who also happened to do the soundtrack to Paddington Bear movies!). The Bristol based crew behind “The Super Soca Show“ will play a set on the “History of Soca Music“.
