One of our 2015 Breakthrough Award winners, The Drystones started out when Dean Collier, Chairman of the Priddy Folk Festival needed to fill a slot urgently and asked his son Ford if he could step up to the plate. A quick call to fiddler friend Alex Garden and The Drystones were formed. Encouraged by the warm reception at Priddy, and some lucrative busking the lads entered the Mid-Somerset Battle of the Bands which against all odds they won.

The past three years have been spent playing beer festivals, weddings, pubs, and charity events, as well as an impressive list of music festivals including Glastonbury in 2013 where they were spotted by Steve Lamacq and announced as his “recommendation of the day” on BBC Radio 2.
