The Ryland Caravan


With headliner Gerry Love (ex-Teenage Fanclub) plus Independent Country, Laura J Martin and more.

Feel all the summer vibes as local indie cowboys Independent Country take over MAC's Outdoor Theatre with non-stop live music, DJs, food, craft beer from Attic Brewery, podcasting, craft stalls and more.

Like an old-time travelling show, The Ryland Caravan - a tip of the hat to Cannon Hill Park benefactor, Louisa Ryland - pulls into MAC with a rollickin' good line-up:

Soak up a rare set from headliner Gerry Love, as he reimagines his peerless songbook from his years as one of the main songwriters and vocalists with Scottish indie legends Teenage Fanclub and from his stunning solo album Electric Cables.

Floppy fringes and baggy jeans are swapped for pedal steel guitars and four-part harmonies as Birmingham's own Independent Country mash up UK and US indie classics with country stylings, delivering a sound that has won admirers on festival stages from Bournville to Nashville.

Mercurial live performer Laura J Martin interweaves vocal loops, flute, mandolin and electronics to bewitching effect. The talented multi-instrumentalist has toured regularly across the UK and Europe and supported acts such as PJ Harvey, Teenage Fanclub and Cate Le Bon.

PLUS blistering punk edge guitar energy from Swampmeat Family Band, live storytelling from OneTrackMinds podcast (an entertaining cross between Desert Island Discs & TED Talks)

...and much more!
