Folk songstress Lucy Rose has today been announced for Standon Calling, which takes place in Hertfordshire 2nd - 4th August. The London-based artist and Bombay Bicycle Club collaborator is set to mesmerize festivalgoers with her beautiful vocals and emotive songwriting. Also joining the line-up are London Grammar who, since the release of their internet debut 'Hey Now' at the end of last year, have continued to impress with follow up releases and a Disclosure collaboration currently all over the airwaves. They are sure to do the same when they take to the stage this summer.
Standon Calling is excited to reveal three exiting new collaborations on the Lordship Stage on the lawns of Standon Lordship manor house. The Crypt Sessions, Loose and Folkstock Arts Foundation will all be handpicking a select lineup of exciting acts to come and wow crowds at the Hertfordshire festival.
Lucy Rose heads The Crypt Sessions' line-up followed by Guardian New Band of the Day, Sivu and Annie Mac's folk-favourite Emily & The Woods. Also on the bill will be Thomas J Speight, The Title Sequence, Lowpines, Gibson Bull, Aley Lenz and Matthew Neal. The Crypt Sessions' online video channel have been bringing stripped back, intimate performances from music's finest into our homes for over three years and are now set to do the same on the Lordship stage.
Leading European Americana and Roots label Loose invite Folk-rockers Danny & The Champions Of The World to the Lordship Stage with further performances from Treetop Flyers, the guitar wielding married duo Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou, The Rockingbirds, solo singer-songwriter Peter Bruntnell, The Dreaming Spires and Case Hardin.
Based just down the road from Standon Calling, the Folkstock Arts Foundation community are strong supporters of emerging talent and will no doubt be introducing festival-goers to the region's brightest stars. Their line-up includes Boo Hetherline, the likes of The Willows, and three-piece country girls Said The Maiden. They'll also be live folk & rock performances from Reg Meuross, Fred's House, The Folk, Interiors, locals Vardo and The Boss, Nick and The Sun Machine, Flaming June, Roxanne de Bastion, Indi Forde, Zoe Wren, Owen Stephen, Rob Finlay, Minnie Birch and Noel Cowley.
With three days of interactive theatre, art installations, a swimming pool, kids area and kids' activities, onsite nightclub and the exciting 'Running away from the Circus' theme, this year's Standon Calling is set to have its best year yet.
