The Vagaband

“Exceptional… a rich concoction of Americana, swing, ragtime, blues and rock.” Folk Radio UK

Norfolk-based The Vagaband are an indie roots band at the forefront of the region’s folk rock scene, equipped with a rich array of instruments, including pedal-steel guitar and nine musician line-up. Since 2010, The Vagaband have gained a respectful following across the UK festival scene and appearances include Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Wilderness, Bestival, Red Rooster and Maverick festivals. 

Fargo Railroad Company

The Fargo Railroad Co. are a southern rock/americana inspired four piece band from Sheffield, UK. Established in 2013 they have already gathered a loyal fan base and continue to add to their numbers playing shows throughout the UK.

They share a distinct and united love of music with a breadth of appreciation that is truly eclectic – all of this has come together to form their current sound, which has settled in the broad and deep ocean of Southern Rock. Looking at the mighty works of Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Marshall Tucker Band, ’38 Special etc, doffing a cap to the sweet 70’s sound of Cash, Young, Dylan whilst bringing in more contemporary vibes of Blackberry Smoke and Jason Isbell.

Roots in the Park

Raising money for an important cause

This year, we are proud to announce that Roots in the Park will be supporting Culford School students voluntary work in Malawi. This is the 10th year that the school has raised funds for important projects in one of the world’s poorest countries. Last year, staff and students provided support for construction projects including the building of a new hall for an orphanage and laying foundations for a library as well as delivering lessons in literacy and numeracy. Proceeds will go toward this worthwhile cause.

We are pleased to sponsored by Edwards & Blake for this year's Roots in the Park.
