The Crooked Billet pub is famous for its visiting bands and musical stars. So on Friday night this year at the Trad, local band "The Covered" will return to tempt boaters and visitors to dance 'til midnight after a very good dinner.
Saturday’s band is the great local Rock’n Roll band: Highly Strung. So get your dancing shoes on and brush p your jive! party night as usual: with a break for the illuminated parade.
On Sunday, we will have a program of Jazz. Lawlors “Annie & the Doughboys” will play before the 5pm Awards Ceremony, and afterwards from about 6.00 pm, internationally acclaimed boogie-woogie-rhythm’n blues pianist Ben Waters brings the weekend’s programme of live music on the Crooked Billet stage to a spectacular finale. Boogie, bop & dance with Ben, or listen from your table with a bite from the Crooked Billet kitchen or just enjoy the show with a drink from the bar.
As is the tradition at all Trad Festivals, revelries cease at midnight on Friday and Saturday evenings
and an official SILENCE is observed on Fawley Meadows until 7 am next morning
