Wikkaman

Saturday 13:30 – 14:15 Poole Arms Stage
Saturday 19:30 – 20:00 Thistle Garden Stage

 

Presenting a quintet of Dorset bred musicians and vocalists, a collective of singers, actors and musicians (The Huckleberries, Yellow Taxi) with a legacy as performance artistes.  Wikkaman are an onstage act and acoustic strolling band supporting arts, music festivals and open-air performance. Think dark folk cabaret with a Jurassic twist.

Wikkaman’s repertoire encompasses vaudeville songs about their native Dorset, at once eccentric, romantic, playful, serious but always intriguing. Songs cover tales of Portland quarrymen, Bridport noose makers, late night fairs with dubious characters, outsiders, insiders, the romantic idylls of Moonfleet, monastic mapmaking and the ballad of the Painted Man.
