With over 60 acts already confirmed for the week-end of the 20-22 July the Rhythmtree organisers are please to announce Skip ‘Little Axe’ McDonald as their latest booking.
“We had been talking to Skip’s agent about 2013 but when Skip himself saw this years line-up the offer came in to include the full Little Axe band on the Friday stage. It is now becoming obvious to us that it is a measure of the Rhythmtree’s growing reputation that artists of the calibre of Skip McDonald see the festival as a great showcase for their music’.
The Little Axe line up will include Alan Glen often cited as one of the finest blues harp players and slide guitarists of his generation. Keeping the gospel dub blues trade mark sound the main-stage set is promised to have a more upbeat party vibe specially put together for the Rhythmtree audience.
Festival organiser Gerry Priddle also told us “On-line tickets are selling really well and we have decided to put tickets into our Island outlets much earlier this year before the early bird allocation sells out”.
£70 early bird tickets will be in Island outlets from 16th April at Rock and Rose Freshwater, Strings Ryde, Music Central Newport and the Dairy Deli Shalfleet.
