We are proud to see Eve Appleton, who had strong local roots in Bridport, and is a regular at our events has been shortlist to the top 20 from thousands of entries.

She is based in Bristol, but born, raised and steeped in the waters, woods and hills of West Dorset. Bridport being her home town before moving to Bristol.
Eve can be seen often in Bridport playing in places such as the Woodman, Lyric Theatre and busking in Bucky Doo Square. Of course we are always pleased to have Eve playing in our events at Clocktower Records along with her talented band. You can listen to her voice for hours and her song writing is absolute up there!
Eve said “We’re in the final 20 of Green Man rising with a record number of entries this year! As someone who’s been going since a baby since it started at Baskerville hall and every year since then, this is a huge and crazy step for us so please vote to help us get there.”
We want to support Eve on her journey and encourage all our customers and friends to vote Eve and her band through to the Final in a couple of weeks time.
