Indoor Stage: Saturday 29 July
Dawson & The Dissenters have a well-earned reputation as a house rocking live band that always deliver on stage.
Based in Leicester for over twenty five years, Dawson Smith is originally from South Wales and has a well-earned reputation for fronting great bands and rocking venues all over the UK and beyond. Dawson first made his name as the frontman of blues rockers The Healers.
In 2014 Dawson released Took The Night which was a real breakthrough album that attracted great reviews (and sales) and established Dawson as a premier league roots rocker. Now comes The Mileage
A barnstormer of an album that has gained loads of national press and rave reviews.
Musically there is a lot going on but with guitar driven blues rock at the heart of everything. As the blues have moved on so has Dawson and Martin’s writing and The Dissenters playing. The band have always been big fans of American southern boogie so expect some of that with plenty of southern soul and lots and lots of full on rock and roll.
