18 Jun Special evening concert announced for county show

There’s a rumble in the bush, that’s sure to keep toes tapping at this year’s Lincolnshire Show…

For local band the Bush Doctors is set to perform a special evening concert to entertain the crowds on the Wednesday evening after the main Show programmes closes.

The band is made up of Richard Askam on lead vocals, Richard Banks on lead guitar, Jo Banks on bass and local farmer Bob Greetham on drums and they will be performing for members of the Agricultural Society. The cover band has been playing to audiences all over the UK during the past 12 years, and this year sees them playing the outdoor stage at the Lincolnshire Show on Wednesday June 20th, in the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society members’ area.

And according to lead singer Richard, the band will be delivering a set that’s designed to suit all tastes and guarantee everyone is swinging at this year’s Show. “We have been working on the set list for this gig and think we have come up with the perfect blend of classic tracks that will suit the audience. I have been coming to the Lincolnshire Show for many years and can’t wait to rock the members on the Wednesday evening,” said Richard. “Our drummer is a Lincolnshire farmer and a member of the Agricultural Society and I have enjoyed the hospitality in the members’ bar over the years courtesy of my father in law who is another farmer.”

“This promises to be one of the biggest and best gigs of our summer schedule.”

Karen Malpass, who handles membership at Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, added: “Membership isn’t just restricted to the farming community, as it’s open to all. Many local people join up because of the benefits they get – as well as free entrance to the Show on both days and special events such as this great concert that’s planned withe the Bush Doctors, they also get special invitations to other events outside the Show and discounts with local businesses.”
