Rebecca and the Bear

Saturday Aug 27 @ 2:00 pm The FAR Stage

Also Saturday Aug 27 @ 1.3 pm Foundry Court; 3:00 pm Molesworth Arms

Rebecca and the Bear are a new, handcrafted, progressive folk/rock band playing originals and covers. They were brought together by singer-songwriter Rebecca Stoneham, who is also a music teacher and painter of bears in her spare time.

The band brings together members from the darkest corners of Kent, Yorkshire, Wales and Bath, who now all find themselves in Lostwithiel.

Smooth and sultry Richard Archibald brings the smokin’ bass lines; Paul Young delights on lead guitar and boyish good vocals; whilst Di Stoneham is engaged in a game of Bucking Bronco to see how many instruments she can play at once.

Their influences range from Joni Mitchell to Beyoncé, via Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles on the way, and they each bring their own set of ingredients to the fusion.
