Resolution time!
Once again the year comes to a grinding halt and focus turns to the next twelve months. In the ever changing world around us, one thing you can always be assured of, is another year of excellent gigs, festivals, parties and events.
This new year edition of Dorset Music takes some time to look both forward and reflect back.
We catch up with Black Tree Vultures, an excellent new rock band who are set to shake things up in 2018, have a chat with Shiv Ferguson, founder of The Shebang, a punk party which has raised over 10,000 pounds for charity about The Shebang and a spinoff event, planned in January to add to this total.
Local promoters We Broke Free are taking a few Dorset bands on tour across the UK. It’s great to see promoters working closely with local artists to help them gain the exposure they deserve. This tour will feature some of the best indie, psych and rock bands around!
Inside, we fill you in on the acts who will be representing our area across the country

2017 has absolutely flown by! Heading into December the bar/music scene, much like the rest of the world, is all about the build up to Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
