Live From Jodrell Bank announces further music and science collaborations for its Paul Weller headlined show in June. Acts perform in front of the iconic Lovell telescope.
Internationally acclaimed star Paul Weller headlines the show performing songs from his hit laden career. A significant figure in British culture, Live From Jodrell Bank is Paul Weller’s only stand alone performance of the summer.
Having already announced a fascinating programme of science related activity to take place throughout the day, Live From Jodrell Bank are thrilled to confirm that Craig Charles will be appearing for an exclusive Q and A ahead of the airing of the 10th series of Red Dwarf. As well as bringing his acclaimed funk and soul show to Jodrell Bank, Craig will also be giving a Q&A session in the Science Arena with a Jodrell Bank scientist on hand to relate the fiction of sci-fi series Red Dwarf to the facts of space exploration.
Gomez are one of the best live bands in the country and still lead the pack when it comes to intelligent and melodic indie rock music. They will be performing a set made up of classic tracks from their huge back catalogue. Jake Evans fully rounded vocals, ear for perfect pop and supreme guitar playing led to him co founding Bad Lieutenant, a band that has featured New Orders Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris and Phil Cunningham as well as Alex James from Blur. His solo show is sure to be a highlight of the festival.
Also performing on the day will be Graham Coxon who will be playing tracks from his acclaimed new album A + E as well as all the classic tracks from his previous 7 studio albums. Baxter Dury showcases his expertly constructed psychedelic pop whilst Little Barrie brings some undiluted rock n’ roll swagger.
