Buckle & Boots Country Music Festival
Following a hugely successful and widely-acclaimed launch last year, Buckle & Boots Country Festival will return for a second year in June at Whitebottom Farm! Located in the heart of the Stockport countryside in Etherow Park, Buckle & Boots provides a unique opportunity for country fans to experience some of the greatest talents in British and worldwide country music in a picturesque rural location. Taking place over 3 days (June 23-25), the festival combines stunning music, great food, top quality camping facilities and an unrivalled community spirit, creating one of the most entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable events of the year.
Last year’s inaugural festival was a phenomenal launch. With meet and greet opportunities and a warm, friendly approach, the festival encouraged a special connection between artists and fans and a wonderful communal atmosphere. Where else could you have your pint pulled at the bar by your favourite country artists? Where else could you wake up in the morning to the sound of some of the genre’s best talents jamming on their guitars just a few tents away? The festival encapsulates everything country music should be – love, laughs and a big like-minded family.
This year promises to crank up proceedings another notch, with an array of immensely talented musicians from all over the world coming to the festival to showcase their craft. The British Country Music Association will be hosting the ‘BCMA Stage’, presenting some of the brightest talents and rising prospects from the British country music scene, and there will also be a huge number of UK acts thrilling audiences on the Paddock Stage.

Back in the mid-60s, a desire for independence in business led to John Skewes forming a small musical instrument agency and wholesale business based at his home near Leeds, England. Over time, his new business steadily began to take off, and soon included throughput of some self-branded lines of musical merchandise. That effective early decision to carry self-branded merchandise continues to this day, with their signature Vintage® acoustic and electric guitars and basses which were first produced and sold in 1985. Today, Skewes is the largest family-owned independent musical merchandise distributor in the U.K. and the Vintage ‘family’ includes Fret King® electric guitars, Pilgrim® Banjo’s and Mandolins, Laka® Ukuleles, Encore® electric and acoustic guitars, and Kinsman® cases.
The central idea behind Vintage® is to offer accessibly priced, vintage-looking guitars with great finishes, quality parts, and features that are typically found on guitars costing upward of a thousand dollars. So, to design an industry-leading line of professional but affordable guitars, Trev Wilkinson joined forces with JHS over a decade ago. These instruments now include class-leading Wilkinson®-designed hardware.
Certain features make Vintage® guitars a “bigger bang for the buck.” Subtle changes to traditional guitar designs have been made so they perform much better. For instance, on the spring block, the holes are staggered in a way that allows the strings to leave the block and pass over the saddles at a consistent angle that helps keep those strings in tune. Trev also developed tuning keys called EZ-LOK™ that work like a locking tuner, but actually don’t require any mechanical manufacturing. There’s nothing to unwind when you’re slacking the strings using the vibrato, and they always come back to pitch. The same goes for our pickups. Trev doesn’t have a high-dollar pickup range to protect, so he can produce pickups that will sound as good as any company can wind anywhere in the world.
Trev has been described as “Britain’s one-man think tank.” Asserting that there’s always more work to be done when it comes to improving guitar playability! We’re here to attest to the fact that’s just who Trev is.
