Live music begins at 7.30pm, Gates open 7pm
One of the finest acoustic music duos in the UK, launching their new album with a live music gig here at Deepdale Backpackers & Camping.
James Pepper and Anthony Shepherd create home-made, homespun folk and roots music drawing on influences such as John Martyn, Tom Petty and Chris Thile. Performing with a verve and passion that has made them one of the most electrifying acts on the UK folk scene, they have released two albums and two EPs.
Their combination of driving guitar rhythms, intricate hickory-smoke tinged mandolin virtuosity and soaring vocal harmonies make Pepper and Shepherd a firm favourite on the folk and roots scene.

We prefer to have open air performances in the Backpackers Courtyard, the band under cover and the audience enjoying the fire pits and dark skies of this beautiful part of the world. However if the weather is horrible, then we move into the Brick Barn out of the inclement weather.
There are benches in the courtyard, but you are welcome to also bring fold up seating. Please don’t bring food or drink. There is a bar from Norfolk Brewhouse & Black Shuck, serving beers, wines and cocktails.
