The inaugural music festival, hosted at The Prebendal Manor House Nassington.

The Grade 1 listed manor is the earliest  surviving dwelling in Northamptonshire with a history dating back to the Anglo-Saxon period. Two of the prebendaries of this manor were closely connect to Richard III, only loosing their positions in  court on his death. It forms the focus of a group of stone buildings, which includes a 16th century dovecote, a large 18th century tithe barn and a 15th century lodgings building.  

All funds raised will go towards the renovation of the Dovecote roof.

Dessie Magee recently played at Excellar Surbiton, (Live @ Ex Cellar) and following on from this great gig, he (and his band) have been invited to headline our first festival.

We are pleased to announce that Matilda Lunberg and band will also be playing. Matilda has played several times for us before, and we are delighted that she will make the journey to Nassington.

Dessie Magee

Brighton based folk/rock singer-songwriter Dessie Magee, hails from Belfast, Northern Ireland where his career began within the heavy underground music scene. With a diverse musical background, Dessie’s music has recently taken a softer approach drawing influences from the likes of Hozier, Ben Howard, Nathaniel Rateliff and Fink, though not leaving his heavy roots behind.

Since then Dessie has gone on to sell out headline shows in Brighton, London and Northern Ireland, appeared at festivals such as Brighton Festival and Fringe Festival and had great success touring America the summer of 2017. His debut single ‘Maze’ was picked as BBC Radio 1’s ‘Track Of The Day’, The Unsigned Guide’s ‘Track Of The Month’, which spent over a month in the top five of the French charts and racked up over 100,000 video views.

Dessie will be joined by his band and we are soon to announce 2 other support acts for this show.
