Eden Sessions live music: A Beautiful Day Out at Eden
In a first event of its kind at Eden, this is a one-day version of the award-winning grass roots festival Beautiful Days, featuring Levellers, New Model Army, Reef, Dreadzone and Ginger Wildheart.
Brighton-based the Levellers – who mark their 30th anniversary as a band this year - sold more platinum, gold, and silver albums in the 1990s than any other act.
They’ve had seven Top 40 albums, including the number one album Zeitgeist and their platinum-selling 1991 album Levelling The Land, and a string of memorable Top 40 singles including This Garden, Hope Street, and the iconic What a Beautiful Day
New Model Army
Punk Rock and Northern Soul fuelled the unique style of New Model Army. Six UK Top 40 albums and seven Top 40 singles, including Here Comes the War and Stupid Questions, have earned the band a devoted following.
Firm Westcountry favourites Reef, who gained fame in the 90s with hits such as Good Feeling, have a new album in the pipeline. Their line-up now includes Jesse Wood, son of Rolling Stone Ronnie, on guitar.
Dreadzone, one of the most powerful and exciting bands to come out of the post-rave scene, launched their 8th studio album Dread Times last year.
The show will be opened by rock guitarist Ginger Wildheart, who made his name in The Quireboys and later formed and led The Wildhearts.
