Unfortunately Pronghorn are unable to play this gig.

In 1992 when grunge was what every self respecting alternative music fan was into, a group of friends who decided to go against the grain formed a band that the likes of Dorset and the world had never seen. 20 odd years ago they started off by busking outside Debenhams in Bournemouth and then played their first gig at the Brunswick Hotel in Charminster. It was after that gig they received their first ever review too - on collection of their gear the following morning, they discovered the landlord's dog had left a rather large message by the drum kit.

The band was put together from the ashes of skiffle outfit 'Hoedown at Hanks'. a Cult tribute band 'Blue Rain' and local upstarts 'The Crunchy Tractors' and quickly went onto busking outside more salubrious locations, Amsterdam Central Station, Copenhagen Homeless Hostels and Cherbourg docks to name but a few. As the band's sound evolved with a mash of punk, country and rockabilly which brought together the band’s very own genre “Cowpunk”, proper gigs soon followed and then the festivals came calling..

The English folk and bluegrass group Pronghorn performed at the Larmer Tree Festival in Dorset every year for 9 years before being discovered by the music industry. They are well known for their unusual covers of other artists songs, their most recognisable covers are The Ace Of Spades and Smells Like White Spirits.

A more motley collection of bad shirts, prison tattoos, greasy comb-overs, mullets and broken teeth you'd be hard pushed to find outside of a Dale Winton home video.

The line up has seen many changes over the years but the founder members, Toni Viagra and Lamma are still there, along with newbies(!) Ffi, Krusty, Gypo, Aussie Mike and Andy Law- who've only done the last twelve years or so.
