The Sette Of Odde Volumes are a three-piece band from the Peak District. Specialising in laid back songs from the swing era they will be treating us to some popular classics performed in their own inimitable style. Paired with an ever expanding repertoire of curiously odd originals they bring together an eclectic mix of upright bass, archtop guitar, vocal harmonies, gypsy violin, ukulele cajon and mouth trumpets to produce a unique and very jolly soundtrack guaranteed to bring fun and smiles to the last day of the festival.
