Stephen will be running two day lyric writing workshop, a new element to our festival, exploring the literary craft involved in songwriting. In addition he will be performing at our Saturday Night Mainstage event. It is very exciting to welcome this internationally renowned songwriter to our festival!

“Without a shadow of a doubt, one of the best songsmiths on the planet. Quality albums…stunning shows.” — BBC UK

Iona Whishaw

Iona Whishaw

Iona Whishaw (author of the very popular Lane Winslow Mysteries) will be joining us for our Wine & Crime event on Friday, July 12th. We have it on good authority that our local Library cannot keep her books on the shelves, you won’t want to miss this wonderful event!

Tickets and workshop applications will be available soon. Subscribe to our newsletter to keep up with all the fun.
