Seth lakeman & Pama International join GuilFest lineup.

Folk Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Seth Lakeman is confirmed to perform on The Good Time Guide Stage at GuilFest on Sunday 18th July.  Widely regarded as the UK's foremost folk artist, Seth came to wider public attention following his Mercury nominated “Kitty Jay” album in 2005.  With this album, Seth brought folk music to a new, younger audience and has been widely credited with breaking down perceptions and barriers often associated with folk music and its acceptance in the mainstream.  Winner of both “Singer of the year” and “Best Album” at the 2007 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards,  Seth has performed his special brand of folk all over the world and with a brand new album eagerly anticipated for release in June, organisers are delighted to welcome him back to Stoke Park this July.

Eight piece Dub/Reggae outfit Pama International will be appearing at GuilFest for the first time, on The Main Stage on Sunday 18th July.  Described as Dub Fuelled Ska Rocksteady & Reggae for the people, In 2006 the band became the first new signing in 30 years to the world famous reggae record label Trojan Records. 2008 saw the release of the 'Love Filled Dub Band' album, which received a host of 4-star reviews from magazines including MOJO, Record Collector, Echoes and Touch. BBC 6Music DJ Craig Charles described the album as, “Bringing funk, soul and dub to near perfection”. Having supported ska legends The Specials and playing legendary festival performances all over the country, the bands debut at GuilFest will definitely be one not miss.
