Music On Tap
Thanks to some independent and enterprising people the quality of bars and cafes around 'old Buxton' has improved a lot in recent years. Happily many of those places are Fringe venues too. Buxton Brewery produces a whole host of award-winning beers and these are available at the Buxton Tap House. Over the course of the Fringe there are also eight nights of free, top quality, live, music-making. Jade Robb, the general manager at The Tap House, sent us this summary of Music On Tap for Fringe 2015.
Tuesday 14th July - Honeyfeet
A three piece band mixing old folk forms, blues, grooves and jazz chords to create a unique style of their own. VERY SPECIAL GIG!

Skutchmanos deliver a hypnotic clash of dynamic acoustic, instrumental music; pounding, playful, well-journeyed and metamorphic! (Appearing live at Beatherder and Kendal Calling)
