Folk legend Tom Paxton brings his timeless works back to The Stables this evening.

The US performer is one of the most revered musicians of his generation, and so unsurprisingly, only a few tickets remain. You need to move quickly if you want in.

Celebrate the glam rock era tomorrow when T*Rextasy bring 1970s rock ‘n’ roll to the stage, but again, at the time of writing only standing tickets remain.

Officially recognised as the world’s number one tribute dedicated to Marc Bolan, they are also the only band to have been authorised and endorsed by Marc’s family and his ex-T Rex band members.

Stackridge offer glorious tunes, quirky lyrics and superb musicianship all created with a sense of fun and they guarantee audiences will leave with a smile after their stint on Saturday.

Contemporary folk artist Lotte Mullan stops off at Stage 2 on Saturday with her second album, for an intimate evening of stories and songs.

Soprano singer Marcella Detroit is best known as a member of the band Shakespeare’s Sister (remember the chart busting Stay With Me? Of course you do), but she has had a varied career as a vocalist, guitarist and songwriter.

For example, did you know she has added her voice to material by Alice Cooper, Aretha Franklin and those yellow folks, The Simpsons.

Oh, and she played in Bob Seegar’s band, and Eric Clapton’s too.

With two albums due for release this year, she returns to The Stables on Sunday.

Between them, Canadian stand-up comedians Craig Campbell, Stewart Francis and Glenn Wool have appeared on all the top entertainment TV shows.

Together as The Lumberjacks they offer a distinctive, infectious brand of three-for-the-price-of-one humour and will be bringing new material to The Stables on Monday.

Chris Wood is an English folk musician and composer who plays fiddle, viola and guitar and sings – we are sure he will be exhausted by the end of his set on Tuesday.

Completing your Stables line-up this week is the Kyle Eastwood Quintet.

The eldest son of actor Clint Eastwood, Kyle was brought up listening to records of jazz stars.

Now, he and his band create music that resonates with swing, groove and funk overtones – discover him, the band and all that jazz on Wednesday.

Why not eat at the venue on the day too – more time for enjoyment and none of the washing-up.

Go for pizza or pasta with salad and a glass of wine, bottled beer or soft drink for £13.

Tasty stuff all round.
