A food festival in North Cornwall has announced its evening musical line up.

St Ives Food and Drink Festival has revealed the evening music line up for its 2021 event which runs from the 17 – 19 September 2021, including acts such as Andy Quick, Freshly Squeezed, Cable Collective and Roustabouts.

Friday night’s opening party welcomes Andy Quick and Freshly Squeezed

Described as an eclectic songwriter and laid back storyteller who has played countless festivals nationally and internationally, Andy hits the stage with a lively bunch of anthems hand picked from 12 years of song writing with his festival bands.

Freshly squeezed are one of the South West UK’s most exciting funk and hip hop outfit, covering popular classic turns and rare grooves with their fresh take on each track.

On Saturday night the festival welcomes The Roustabouts and the Cable Street Collective

Hailing from Falmouth and performing a theatrical mixture of gypsy, Balkan, folk, dance, and swing influenced original songs and arrangements; The Roustabouts Collective offer a musical cabaret experience.

Closing out the evening, the London-based seven-piece Cable Street Collective have spent the last year writing and recording new material whilst they get ready for festival season to return. Recent releases showcase the direction of the new album.

Their latest recordings are songs that have been road-tested extensively, with back-to-back summers tearing up the likes of Boomtown, Bestival, Secret Garden Party, The Isle of Wight Festival, and the Lake of Stars Festival (Malawi).

Then on Sunday, Bailey Tomkinson will grace the stage for the last day at St Ives Festival.

A singersongwriter from St Ives, is part of the new wave of British Country influenced artists.

When not performing, she can be found surfing the waves at her local Porthmeor beach.

Recently featured in The Metro, The Times and on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, Bailey’s mix of popcountry hooks and relatable storytelling has earned her comparisons with an early Taylor Swift and the legendary Emmylou Harris.

Following Bailey, Leeds-based Howlin’ Ric & the Rocketeers play vibrant and authentic rock and roll, roving from raucous rhythm and blues right through to dreamy popcorn love songs.
