Any thoughts on mid bill acts that have played in the past and should make a return appearance?

My vote is for Blackbeard's Tea Party who were excellent a few years ago and have only improved with their recent offerings

Unique the first time, repetitive the second.
Dreadzone for sure, but a later slot this year as they were lost last time.

Yes! If ever a band deserved a second chance, not playing to a rain drenched audience.
Deadzone need a warm summer's night.

Well, if someone deserves an opportunity to play to some dry people, I nominate Julie Fowlis.

From the same bill, despite my expectations, IMO the Blockheads blew Horslips off the stage.

Sonny Lister, Katzenjammer, Calan (they've really grown up..), Skerryvore,
and I agree it's high time for a repeat visit from Trad Arrr.

Being purely selfish, I’ve seen The Blockheads so many times (they play Colchester in December every year) and I also saw them way back in the early 1980’s with the late great Ian Dury that I think I seeing them yet again would cause me to leave very early. I did love Horslips though  Grin
