Anyone who went to ‘Beautiful Days’ at Escot at the weekend may have seen and heard two bands that are set to play in Honiton very soon - namely The Eskies and The Leylines.

The Dublin-based boys from The Eskies are returning to play the main set after supporting Mad Dog Mcrea at their annual Beehive Christmas gig and are being supported by The Leylines on Friday, September 8.

The Leylines have created a style that combines the acerbic social commentary of Paul Weller with a folk-rock vibe that will send you right back to those long, hazy, festival days.

Their music is fiddle-driven rabble rousers and they play songs that stir the soul.

As a complete contrast to the festival fare mentioned, the immensely talented Neil Maya Jazz Quartet, featuring Honiton’s superb young pianist, Matt Carter, will play at the Beehive with ‘The Brubeck Project’ on Friday, September 15.

Musician Neil Maya is collaborating with some of the finest musicians to reproduce the best known Dave Brubeck recordings such as It’s a Raggy Waltz and of course Take 5.
