The Vaults - Faversham Hop Festival 2016 Information

The Vaults 
FAVERSHAM HOP FESTIVAL 2016

A ‘free house’ pub with a good range of beers in Preston Street opposite The Alexander Centre.
From the outside the pub looks small but don’t be put off! It is a tardis of a pub! Loads of room inside and a good size garden where the music will be (weather permitting). There is also a side entrance in the adjoining alleyway. A good line-up of bands across the weekend including Friday evening.
The Vaults have live music regularly throughout the year.

Sur Les Docks
Nés sur les quais Dunkerquois sous l’ombre du phare, sept dockers mercenaires se lancent à l’abordage des ports, bistrots et tavernes afin d’animer ces lieux d’un folklore déjanté et de faire couler les fûts... . . .
(PiF thinks that translates as "my hovercraft is full of eels")
Anyway the video used here is a tad old (2011) but was filmed at The Old Wine Vaults (wherever that is?)






Creek
A Powerful and Energetic British Rock Band from Kent

Creek busted down the doors of the rock scene in 2013 when long time friends who first met while still in secondary school, Jess Paul and Mark built the foundations of the band that was to become Creek.

Powerful vocals, electrifying guitar riffs and arena ready rhythms has them standing out of the crowd. Bringing together influences from the rock and pop world alike, the music of Creek appeals to rock fans and non-rock fans alike. 






Thomas Ashby
Folk/Blues Singer/Songwriter & 'One-Man Band'
Vocals, Guitar, Bass Drum, Tambourine, Snare (Recordings include Piano, Banjo, Violin)







Matt Appleby 
London singer-songwriter originally from Folkestone.

His new EP: 'These Were My Roots' is out now! Listen on You Tube:




The Narratones

"Narratones, describes us really - a bit narrow minded when it comes to music. 
We started out in 2012, with similar influences and different stories."

James - Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar
Nathan - Backing Vocals, Lead Guitar
Matt - Drums
Darren - Bass Guitar

PiF: probably one of the best bands playing in Faversham and I first heard them in the Vaults.




**RELEASE** Party people, we released our first ever song 'SO WRONG'. We're awaiting confirmation from the bigger music stores. but you can buy & hear it here:

(Note: The song below is not their first single 'So Wrong'




Ben Russell and the Charmers
Where European and Australasian Reggae meet.
Bringing the values of roots reggae through harmony, catchy hooks and foot stomping bass, creating what could be best described as a 'warm sunny vibe'.







Get Carter
Get Carter plays a clever blues and rhythm set gleaned from artists in London, Melbourne, New Orleans, France, Belfast and an independent record store around the corner in Faversham 



Nick Lawrence (Previously known as Lucky Jackson) 
is a singer and songwriter from Folkestone, England. His music is most strongly influenced by the work of artists such as Bob Dylan, Billy Bragg, The Beatles, The Band, Johnny Cash, Jake Thackray and The Levellers.
These inspirational musicians have driven Nick to write songs encompassing numerous genres, including heartfelt ballads and cutting political commentary.

Green Diesel
The band Green Diesel make noise. Old fashioned, new fangled, jumping around with a violin and a bouzouki sort of noise. And they will continue to do so until they run out of instruments.
Specialising in innovative folk rock, Green Diesel first emerged in 2009, determined to pair new interpretations of traditional tunes with their own manic compositions, and make them dance.
The sextet of multi-disciplined musicians from Faversham, Kent, take their inspiration from the depths of English folk lore and legend and the classic folk rock sound of the 1970s. Like their predecessors Fairport Convention and The Albion Band, Green Diesel's sound is born from a love of traditional English music and a desire to reinvent it for modern audiences.
