The Lambeth Country Show returns to Brockwell Park on 18th 19th July
The Lambeth Country Show is now in its 41st year. It is a unique event for London, showcasing family activities, pet shows, farm animals, flowers and fashion, cakes and vegetable displays and entertainment of all sorts for everyone. The main music stage takes up a presence in the park that attracts a worldwide audience to Brixton.
What’s On – Day 1 – Saturday 18th
Day one, on Saturday 18th has an eclectic mix of sounds. Each year it is different. 2015 sees an incredible line up of Soul, Funk, Afrobeat, Jazz and Disco….. the original 70’s sound of Odyssey headlines but the day is one great headline slot with Atlantic Soul Orchestra kicking off the afternoon; Nii Tagoe fronting a 10 piece Afrobeat dance jazz ensemble with Frittiti dancers; PB (Pete Biggen, drummer extraordinaire) plays with his new band with amazing funk sounds PB Underground, don’t miss it.
What’s On – Day 2 Roots Day – Sunday 19th July
The heart of the event is Roots Day – Reggae all day live and direct – a little piece of Jamaica hits Brixton every year. The Lambeth Country Show features Rasites, a refreshing contemporary force alongside the 70’s roots vibrations of Misty In Roots – strident, heavy, righteous and full of vibes. Headlining is the new ‘Culture’ fronted by Joseph Hill’s son, Kenyatta Hill, who brings his father’s legacy to Brockwell Park with songs like ‘ two seven’s clash’ and Mr Music. But Kenyatta’s own personality will shine through and as usual Brockwell Park will be alive with the pulse of reggae music. Brixton’s Gappy Crucial is the stage selector and we will feature some new up and coming vocal acts at the beginning of the afternoon.
Culture Promotions never disappoints and 2015 promises another year of amazing live music for the people of Lambeth! Follow the Lambeth Country Show on Facebook and on Twitter to get the latest updates.
