ROCK RIDGE COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL 2014 LINEUP

Postby Palerider » Fri Dec 06, 2013 10:35 am

After the successful re-launch of Rock Ridge last year we are pleased to announce we have another great line-up for 2014. The festival runs over the same weekend (last weekend of July) and the dates are Friday 25th July to Monday 28th July, 2014. The live entertainment starts approx 7pm on the Friday and runs through till midnight of Monday 28th. For those wanting an early party get-together the site is open from mid day Thursday 24th July with a pre-festival party in the marquee on the night. Bar and background music will be on hand and it is a great chance to meet up with old friends and have a chill night before the main entertainment kicks off from Friday.
The site has moved a few miles from last year and the address is
Burdon Plain, off A6076 between Stanley and Sunniside, approx post code NE16 5ET
The cost is the same as last year at £60 per person for the full 4 –day festival and this includes camping. For those arriving on the Thursday there is an additional £5 per camping unit, just payable on the day.
We have another fabulous line-up for 2014 featuring a mix of headline acts from USA, Europe and the UK. Headlining our 2014 event is the fab Heather Myles. In support we have Boomer McClennan returning to the UK, following his cancelled tour during 2013 due to family health problems at home. We also have Kayleigh Leith making her first UK appearance after extensive touring in Europe. Kayleigh originates from Texas but has lived in the Netherlands for the last few years where she has put together a top band to support her. We also have the Lee Paul Band making their first appearance at a UK country festival. Paul and the guys have had great success taking their brand of country into the more mainstream venues such as the O2 London, the O2 Newcastle, concert halls and theatres. This is a 7 piece local North East band consisting of 6 guys and one female, performing a great mix of original country together with covers of some great modern country hits. Other favourite UK performers are The Jaxon Band (ex Smith & Jackson), Gary Perkins and the Breeze, Next Of Kin, The John Taylor Band, The Gary Quinn Band, The Long Gone Daddys, Mel & Luke, Thorne Hill, Dixon J Scott, and still a few more to be confirmed.
Congratulations also go to some of the BCMA winners performing at Rock Ridge, in the form of John Taylor Band (Best Band), Gary Quinn (Best Original Song) and Luke and Mel (Best newcomers).
We have listened to your comments made last year about the black marquee and it being too dark so we will be reverting to the traditional white marquee for 2014. All other facilities remain on site such as the fabulous CHEAP bar, dance floors, DJ, excellent sound and light show, trade stalls, western village, food stands, toilets, showers and pamper room, western games etc. We also have the one and only Brian Gibson returning as festival compare.
Deposits are currently being taken at only £10 per person with balance not due till end of June 2014. Anyone wanting to book then the easiest way is to drop us an email stating how many people and we will forward you a payment request, alternatively just give us a ring on 01207 529233 or 07982 005429. The website is currently being updated so booking forms will also be available to down load from there. If you already paid your deposit at last years event then do not worry you are on our system and your place assured.

Many thanks to those that supported us in 2013 and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
Regards Kevin and Tracey

Sorry to let you all know but unfortunately Heather Myles has had to withdraw from her touring this year as she has personal problems at home, meaning she can't leave the country. We were really looking forward to seeing her at Rock Ridge this year, hopefully we can rearrange for another year.
We are please to announce that we have the Travis Collins Band, from Australia, ably stepping into her shoes.

We still have three great overseas touring bands performing at Rock Ridge, Travis Collins, Boomer Mclennan and Kayleigh Leith, making her first UK appearance this year.

We also have some great UK talent in the form of Gary Quinn band, John Taylor Band, and Gary Perkins and the Breeze.

Some new UK bands to watch out for are the North East 7 piece country band in the form of The Lee Paul Band and making a very welcome return to the UK scene Jaxon Band (formerly Smith & Jackson Band), from a few years ago.

Tickets are going very well again, and places can still be secured with a £10 deposit. Full details on the website (which should be updated by end of Jan). http://www.rockridgeevents.co.uk

Only 5 weeks to go now and starting to get really excited about the festival this year. We have a great mix of new, young and exciting bands, such as Travis Collins (USA), Kayleigh Leith (Netherlands) and Lee Paul Band (UK), as well as some great traditional favourites like Gary Perkins, Boomer McClennan, John Taylor Band and Next Of Kin. The famous Rock Ridge saloon will be opening its shutters once more with pints at £2.30 and double, branded spirits at £2. We also once again will have the pamper room on site with free use of electric sockets and large mirrors to get yourselves ready. So even if no electric in caravan/tent please feel free to bring your hair dryers/tongs etc. Showers and toilets on site as usual, together with a wide range of trade stalls and food stands. Main event starts approx 2pm Friday afternoon and runs till midnight Monday. For those arriving early there’s a pre-festival party night in the marquee from 7pm Thursday. Tickets still available at only £60 for the full 4-day festival, including free camping on site. Bookings can be made either direct from website (http://www.rockridgeevents.co.uk) or by emailing for a payment request to rockridgeevents@gmail.com . Alternatively the booking form can be printed off and returned with the good old fashioned cheque. Full line-up and details on attached flyer. For more info contact Kevin/Tracey on 01207 529233
