Singer songwriter Owen Penrice is back by popular demand this year. Describing his music as urban hiphop, Owen has built up a strong local fan base playing festival gigs such as Lemonfest, Jolly Jam and Glas-Denbury.
His latest song I'll Never Beg showcased on the music video channels Muzi and 4Music and he has had a busy year recently supporting his mate and fellow X factor contestant Luke Friend at the Riviera International Conference Centre playing to more than 1,000 people.
New to the music stage this year are KEVICC Performing Arts Company (KPAC) who are made up of a group of children aged between 9 – 13 years. They have a wide repertoire of songs including songs from shows such as Matilda. Known as KPAC, they have performed both within King Edward VI Community college, at local primary schools and further afield including the Devon County Show. We welcome them to their debut on the music stage this year. Apparently they just love performing, especially to a high standard!
The Big Band Theory
Singer Gilly and keyboard player Dave, from last year's popular Gilly and Co, are taking to the stage again this year as part of a fabulous new 8 piece band - The Big Band Theory.
A charismatic trio of frontwomen, backed by talented musicians, they sing a combination of old favourites and originals resulting in a dynamic set. The band, who perform successful gigs locally, are described as Motown meets The Commitments and a whole lot more!
Alternative folk rock band Hoarse are an intrepid bunch of music makers from Torquay.
Hoarse will be performing with their sound ‘a cross between Mumford and Sons and the Wurzels’. They boast an impressive catalogue of catchy originals and well-chosen covers bringing folky eclectic flair to the Totnes Show.
A favourite at festivals, singer songwriter Sam has performed regularly and sucessfully in and around Devon and Cornwall at venues such as Mama Stones and The Phoenix.
He recently supported The Kinks original band and also played 5 gigs at the Dartmouth Festival as well as having opened the Kingsbridge Festival.
Sam has a large repertoire of songs, both upbeat and ballads and can perform over 100 covers from artists such as John Mayer and Bruno Mars.
He has recently released his new EP called “Building Blocks”.
