One of the island’s most popular groups are to make an appearance at a UK music festival next weekend.

The Fecktones, who describe themselves as ’a band of musical misfits who play an intriguingly hypnotic combination of ska, gypsy, folk, Balkan, Celtic and sea shanties, will be performing at the Green Gathering festival, in Chepstow, which takes place between Thursday, August 1 and Sunday, August 4.

The group, led by singer Andy North, along with Paul Rogers, Gary Quilliam and Lee Brooks, will be appearing on the Triban stage on Thursday evening, from 10pm.
