Monroe’s Revenge will bring 22 years of hard-driving blue grass music to the concerts on Saturday afternoon & evening. That’s a lot of hard-driving blue grass but we’re assured they’ll fit it into the concert slots. This five-piece is one of the hardest-working, foot-stomping bands around, playing traditional and contemporary songs and fast-paced, virtuoso instrumentals with a rootsy, edgy energy.

The band from south-east England has made regular appearances at festivals around the country for over two decades, playing traditional and contemporary songs and fast-paced, virtuoso instrumentals with a rootsy, edgy energy.

The band is fronted by Dave Plane (guitar and vocals), who has been playing bluegrass music since the 1960s, with Roger Blackbourn (playing banjo and providing vocals), Joe Hymas (mandolin and vocals), Richard Partridge (fiddle and vocals) and Dick Embery (double bass). Many commentators consider that this line-up is its strongest yet.
