Based out of Watford, UK, The Dicemen can safely claim to be one of the most popular folk/post-punk/indie acoustic trios in the Herts Beds Bucks area! They line-up with guitar, acoustic bass and either mandolin, bouzouki or - on a bad day - banjo, to play their own songs alongside some unlikely versions of others you may already know. "Wow thank you for the cover…..nice work" - Chris Difford (Squeeze) on the Dicemen's cover of Take Me I'm Yours

As those who have been fortunate enough to catch them in full flight will testify, a Jaywalkers show is an exhilarating experience. UK-based they may be but many from the other side of the Atlantic have complimented them on their particularly stylish delivery of this virtuosic brand of Americana. These three outstanding musicians have developed a tight bond, demonstrated through their well-crafted, tasteful arrangements and ability to bounce ideas around the stage. The combination of powerhouse bass, flame-fingered mandolin, blistering fiddle and three-part harmony pack a punch as fiery as Jay’s lead vocals and make a fuller sound than expected from an acoustic trio.

Venue


A special place

The festival is held in the beautiful old medieval church of St. Mary's, set on the hill above the village of Edlesborough in Buckinghamshire. The earliest parts of the church date from the late 1200s. It is located at LU6 2EP - you can find a map on the contact page.

The church is now owned by the Churches Conservation Trust and managed by the 'Friends of the Church on the Hill, Edlesborough, part of the EDaN group. You can find out more about the church and its history here.

Visitors to the church should be aware that access is either by way of a series of steps or a steep winding path through the cemetery. On the festival weekend, via the bridle path, there is parking in the field to the rear of the churchyard. We hire portaloos for our festival events which are located at the bottom of the steep steps. It is also advisable to bring a torch to guide you down the hill at the end of the event!

If you have any more questions re accessibility, please contact us.
