Shakespeares Announce Tramlines Line Up
Local hotspot Shakespeares reveal the full line up of their Tinamps stage at Tramlines this summer.
Last year was Tineamps’ first involvement with the festival, showcasing performances from the likes of Faerground Accidents, Rumpus and Hey Sholay. This year boasts a more diverse bill with two specially curated nights of gypsy folk and rock ‘n’ roll. Support your local scene and head over to Shakespeares for free admission and one of the best fringe events Tramlines has to offer. You can check out the line up below:
July 24th Gypsy folk night
5:00pm – Holy Moly and the Crackers
“a re-imagining of folk/blues songs that evokes eras of whiskey and guns on modern punk folk steroids”. They play a lively, moonshine mix of Romani, gypsy folk and Americana.
7.30 – Hedge Gods
Welsh outfit Hedge Gods offer their self-proclaimed ‘analogue dance’ through a fusion of globe-trotting rhythms and a gypsy bent to skiffling acoustic guitars.
8.30 – Lee Parry
Must see must hear lyrical troubadour from Manchester, reminiscent of Jeff Buckley and Elliott Smith.
9.30 – Solana
Party time. The kings and queen of gypsy folk bless us with their multi-cultural rhythms.
July 25th Guitarmageddon
6.30pm – Blayne Flint
A heavily 90’s inspired, three-piece punk rock band from somewhere in Yorkshire (not Leeds).
7.30pm – Bonetti
Experimental and as zany as you are. God help us. You’ll luv ’em. Sheffield recipe.
8.30pm – Scaramanga Six
Purveyors of loud noise and louder shoes. “An evil version of a pop group.”
9.30pm – Black Cat White Cat
Angela Basson and her bad boys channeling Grace Slick, Janis J and Karen O. Sheffield’s finest musical aesthetes.
