Eddi Reader

The Scottish superstar – lead singer with Fairground Attraction (vocalist on the worldwide smash “Perfect”) enduring solo artist and ambassador for Scottish music and poetry – is back in Nantwich!


Eddi’s show at the Civic in 2021 was one of the greatest and best received nights in our festivals history – several members of our team still consider it our best ever show – and she’s back now by popular demand with her stellar band and sackful of hit songs including “Patience Of Angels” “Find My Love” and the evergreen “Perfect”.


One of the greatest of all UK singers, and a uniquely warm and witty stage presence,

she is a recipient of three Brit awards, and was the performer chosen to sing at the opening of the new Scottish Parliament buildings, at which occasion she was presented to Queen Elizabeth II.

Steve Wickham & Ray Coen

STEVE WICKHAM is a revered Irish musician, best known as a member of the Waterboys, having made major contributions to many of their most famous tracks including “Fishermans Blues” “A Man Is In Love” and “The Pan Within”.


However he has also worked with U2 (playing on “Sunday Bloody Sunday” from the “War” album) and Sinead O’Connor on her early and most successful albums. Steve was born in Dublin, raised on classical music and Celtic folk, but his career has seen him emerge as a groundbreaking musician, whose use of the violin to create distinct rock soundscapes has earned him the nickname `’the Jimi Hendrix of the violin”. We await his first appearance in Nantwich with bated breath.


RAY COEN is a guitarist / multi instrumentalist hailing from Sligo.

A true virtuoso and master of many styles he has toured all over UK, Europe and Japan with Steve Wickham, and famed Irish bands the No Crows and Craic Addicts.

The Manfreds

The Manfreds

The Manfreds: Hits & More in ’24  Following the huge success of their 60th anniversary tour in 2023, The Manfreds will be coming to Nantwich Roots on Sunday 19th May at Nantwich Civic Hall.


They are considered one of the finest and most respected bands from the 1960’s era. Their numerous hits were not just ‘pop’ songs, many were R&B based with an undercurrent of jazz – a very unusual but winning combination of playing style and substance.


As a result, their records have a timeless quality and, some 60 years on, The Manfreds, with original front man Paul Jones, will be performing many of their hits, including ‘Do Wah Diddy Diddy’, one of the most popular and instantly recognisable songs of the ‘60’s, and still the biggest audience pleaser at their concerts, along with a mix of Jazz and Blues covers and tracks from their individual solo albums.


Paul Jones, with his unique harmonica sound, will be joined by founder member Tom McGuinness on guitar, Pete Riley on drums, Mike Gorman on keyboards, Marcus Cliffe on bass, and Simon Currie on saxophone/ flute.
