The Haverton Hillbillies



11am & 4pm


Yellow Zone Toasting Gate Stage
“Inspired by his Grandad Jimmy’s sing-a-long Pub Table antics in bygone days, Wildcats of Kilkenny frontman Mike McGrother brings his raggle-taggle band of hillbilly smilers to Thrift complete with a hefty dose of Shanty singing backing vocalists in the form of the mighty Infant Hercules! Expect a foot-stomping mix of Celtic meets Cowpen; Shanty meets Stockton and Americana meets Acklam as Mike fuses his boundless passion for Teesside with songs to singalong with and help us smile through our Sunday! Featuring members of The Wonder Stuff, Funk Collective and Big Red and the Grinners the boys are back in town and ready to blow every man, woman and child down with a big cheeky grin and hefty dose of Teesside blarney. Learn the songs with them as they pop up on site or just come down to the music stage and enjoy the Haverton Hillbilly Party!
