Xander and the Peace Pirates

Xander and the Peace Pirates are modern pioneers of blues, sending a message of peace and love through their music to anyone who'll listen. And while the "Peace Pirates" may seem oxymoronic, and their mantra of "Keep Peaceful, Keep Piratey" even more so, it kind of works.

Xander and the Peace Pirates are a testament to musical integrity and personal strength. Combining soul, blues and rock, their pervasive blend of inspired song writing and memorable performances has already seen them enrapture audiences from around the world.

"Despite being a new name to many, they've already shared space onstage with rock & blues glitterati like Buddy Guy, Bon Jovi, Vintage Trouble, The Temperance Movement, Eric Bibb, Robben Ford, Manfred Mann, Joe Bonamassa, Ritchie Kotzen, Bernie Marsden (Whitesnake) and The Fabulous Thunderbirds."

The Trevor Sewell Band

Winner of 9 major awards in the U.S.A and 4 times nominated in the British Blues Awards.

Trevor Sewell is a British Guitarist/Vocalist and Hollywood (HMMA) Award Winning Artist who has been widely associated with the current 'New Wave of British Blues'. It's always great to have Trevor back at Sedgefield.


Teresa Watson band

Featuring the very talented lead singer Teresa Watson. Well known in the North East of England pub and club scenes, she gave up singing after twenty years to recharge her batteries.

Unfortunately this forced retirement as such lasted six years but now she is back with a vengeance.

Certainly a very good combination, a very professional band with very slick and intricate tones.

Eliana Cargnelutti

Eliana is the new hope of italian rock blues. A strong singer and a crafty guitarist, one of the rare real front women of the italian scene. She plays a flavor of rock blues with a bit of everything in between: electric funk, mixed with pop and jazzy instrumentals, raw rock, tight blues grooves, illuminated by her skills as an electric guitarist.

Joe Bonamassa put Eliana’s 'I'm a woman' on the list of the 8 recent songs absolutely to hear.

Eliana played with Deep Purple’s drummer, Ian Paice in a memorable sold out concert in Austria with the only all-female tribute to Deep Purple in the world, her 'Strange Kind of women' project. Eliana has been on tour throughout 2019 from Europe to US with her rock blues quartet Eliana Cargnelutti Band

George Shovlin & George Lamb

Firm Sedgefield favourites, George Shovlin and George Lamb…lead guitarist in the band…have played as a duo since the mid 1990s, in response to local NE demand but their blues/Americana performances have resulted in increasing recognition. They have now played a number of significant gigs as a duo, including Rievers Rock and Blues, Skegness, Colne and Southport Blues Festivals.

Chantel McGregor

The Blues came calling first, but rock was always waiting around the corner. Well it would be, wouldn’t it? Coming from the deep south, it was inevitable, but living in the deep south of a major Yorkshire City, there’s a gritty hard edge to life!

A female guitar prodigy, Chantel was told by a major label that she had a "great voice, but girls don't play guitar like that!", we say Chantel can play it however she likes!
A regular back at Sedgefield but not since 2016, oh how times flies by....

Sean Webster

... a 14 year old boy was introduced to guitar based music by a school friend. Sean became instantly hooked on the instrument and began researching as many influences as he could. All the blues greats; the Kings (Albert, BB and Freddie), Collins, Cray, alongside Moore, Knopfler, Lang and of course the reason Sean says he plays guitar....Truly a magical moment when last at Sedgefield, making the hairs stand up on the back of your neck.


The Herbal Remedy

Take 2 parts Auld Man's Baccie, successful acoustic blues duo with 3 CD's to their name. Add 1 part Gary Grainger-award winning Radio Presenter (The Blues Show on Bishop FM) and renowned acoustic performer and yes, bass player. Sprinkle with a heavy dollop of John Timney (Yuma and much more), drums, percussion and production.
Stir the ingredients together with a huge groove and wrap around a collection of original humorous dark songs. Instead of baking the CD in the player for 42 mins (new album!), come along and see the fantastic 4some.
