NonStuff Festival 2015 @ Wiston Lodge returns, with music to make your heart sing.. and more..

There are many things guaranteed at NonStuff Festival 2015, and we have a hard task ahead to beat last years success, but one thing is for sure, we have some great musical performances.

The response for performers and workshop facilitators has been amazing and inspiring!!

Last year we had some outstanding musical performers, bringing us acoustic and unamplified sounds, just as nature intended. Music to get you moving; slow you down; have you reflect on the beauty of nature; smile inwardly; soar with melodies which take us back to our shared humanity & world roots.

This year, we will bring you more of that greatness and magic.

Here are just some of the creative musicians and touching performances you can expect:

Portnawak & The Woo – a musical ensemble, playing a unique blend of gypsy folk hop, psychedelic tribal bounce music and organic punk……with the added element of Woo!

Kuchke – All female polyphonic choir singing acapella songs of the Balkans and a few from the rest of the world….

The Watch Thieves:

‘The Watch Thieves play a kind of traditional folk but with political and modern twists, both lyrically and musically. Sort of indescribable and awe-inspiring.’ Raphael Lehmann

‘The Watch Thieves – As mysteriously comfortable as one wool sock. Beautiful new folk with a sombre smile’ Ryan Van Winkle, Host, The Golden Hour

Jemima and the Fuse

This fantastic duo, Tim and Jemima become Jemima and the Fuse. Singing songs, playing ukuleleĀ  with Tim accompanying on a tongue drum.

I’d add that they are hypnotic, soothing, wonderful and entertaining…

And of course, NonStuff Festival wouldn’t exist without The Forgotten Works (and James Chapman, who leads and accompanies many fantastic performers)

NonStuff Festival promises you many things, and will be releasing more details in the weeks and months to come, but you can be sure that the whole weekend will be accompanied with beautiful and heart felt music.

Join us in this musical odyssey.

We are still looking to add to the list of great performers, could this be you?
