Grab your stetson, steady your sea legs and get ready to set sail on Bristol’s famous Tower Belle for an evening of boat-rocking music from Truckstop Honeymoon and the launch of River Town 2019!

Our summer celebration of roots and Americana music begins in style on the 100-year-old traditional river steamer as banjo and upright bass wielding duo Truckstop Honeymoon unleash their high energy bluegrass, folk and straight up rock’n’roll. With a shipload of “charming, funny and incisive” (Sing Out) stories brimming with heart and humour, Mike and Kate West will transport you to the deep south in unique gig sailing across Bristol harbour.
